World War Two history has a pattern in both the European and Pacific Theaters. Constant Axis expansion, followed by steady Axis contraction, as the Allies recapture lost territory. In Europe, it is hard to pinpoint the transition point (a good barroom discussion any time!). In the Pacific, it is a little easier to focus precisely at the campaign where the Japanese tide of conquest began to ebb--their unsuccessful campaign to take Port Moresby, the "step too far." But a closer look shows that this was a much closer campaign, stretching the Japanese to complete. With a few breaks, the Allies might have held on. Can you do better? Find out for yourself.
Forlorn Hopes covers the entire two-month campaign for the region, using a system that fully integrates air/sea/land operations. Derived from the popular titles "Chennault's First Fight" and "Operation Cartwheel" (both published by ATO), this game gives both sides difficult choices in facing their different challenges. Full color 22" x 34" map. 288 die-cut, full color large 5/8" counters provide players with the air, ground, and naval units which actually fought in the campaign, plus some which could have been there.
