In Fields of Fire 2: With the Old Breed you pin on your Captain's Bars and take command of a Rifle Company in the 5th Marines, the most decorated Regiment in the US Marine Corps. Test your mettle in 3 Campaigns spanning World War II, Korea and Vietnam:
- Battle ashore in the blazing heat of Peleliu in September 1944 to discover the Japanese have changed their strategy and you are forced to dig them out of the coral ridges.
- Flares reveal waves of Chinese pouring over the rugged mountains of the Chosin Reservoir, Korea, in sub zero weather in November 1950.
- Fight house to house in Hue City, Vietnam in February 1968.
These 3 Campaigns live on in the legends and history of the United States Marine Corps.
Fields of Fire is a solitaire Game System that gives players the challenge of commanding a Rifle Company between World War II and Present Day. The Game is different from many Tactical Games in that it is diceless and card based. There are 2 Decks used to play. The Terrain Deck is based on a specific Region and is used to build a Map for the various Missions your Company must perform. The Action Deck serves many purposes in controlling combat, command and control, various activity attempts. The Units of the Company are counters representing headquarters elements, squads, weapons teams, forward observers, individual vehicles or helicopters. A single playing is a Mission and several Missions from an Historical Campaign are strung together for the player to manage experience and replacements.
This volume of Fields of Fire is based on 3 actual Campaigns experienced by Units of the 5th Marines of the 1st Marine Division Blue Diamond in World War II, Korea and Vietnam and is the 2nd volume of the Fields of Fire Series.
