- HOw do you capture the flavor of this conflict on the
table-top. Somehow my games playing out very
pseudo-WWII in the Pacific. You know:better armed
AMerican forces taking on a honour bound military over
fortified hill and jungle posistions?

- G'day Joe,
Interesting question! While there are a lot of things both campaigns have in
common, the major difference would be technology would'nt it? I'm thinking
of Close air support, Napalm and radio command and control.
Of course, at the sharp end an infantryman from the Span-Am conflict would
probably find Leyte or Gaudacanal familiar looking territory.
I remember reading a short story about signallers working under fire on San
Juan Hill. The writer wrote of continual innacurate fire and lots of it at
any sign of movement or other visible target. Perhaps you could incorporate
this into your rules. How are you actually playing this? As a skirmish or
with larger units?
