D-Day at Peleliu is a solitaire game simulating the amphibious invasion of Peleliu in the Palau Islands. The Marines assaulted with the primary goal of capturing the airstrip nestled amid jungle and overlooked by forbidding mountain terrain.

Wellington’s Victory. The classic 1976 game covering the battle of Waterloo returns in this revamped version. Napoleon’s French Army of the North faces Wellington’s hodge-podge Army of the Low Countries, who are fighting for time while awaiting the arrival of Blucher’s Prussian Army of the Lower Rhine.

Napoleon’s Last BattlesNapoleon has escaped exile on Elba to retake the French throne in early 1815, but is surrounded by the armies of the Seventh Coalition, determined to remove him again. Napoleon’s only chance is a preemptive strike, to disrupt the Coalition’s plans and perhaps cause it to fall apart.

Did you know?

The American Red Cross is founded on 21 May 1881. Clara Barton, a veteran nurse who had served in the American Civil War and again in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, pushed for legislation supporting the formation of the American Red Cross foundation. Inspired by the International Committee of the Red Cross, Barton saw the need and justification for an American branch that would serve the American people. Originally the American Red Cross served to provide needed healthcare to the US military as well as gathering information regarding missing or wounded personnel in conflicts. The society’s role changed at the turn of the century during the Spanish-American War, when the American Red Cross aided in assisting refugees of the conflict. The Red Cross also became involved in domestic affairs, providing aid and comfort to victims of natural disasters. While the military application of the Red Cross has largely been set aside today, it continues to serve the greater good in assisting during natural disasters and times of national tragedy.

New Military Tech!
The X-18 Tank Boat

The North Sea Boat company has unveiled a concept vessel for use by naval special operation forces. The 60 foot catamaran has a tank turret mounted to the top of the vessel to support landing operations. The 105mm cannon provide a 360 degree radius of protection and can launch rounds up to 6 miles. For added security, a heavy mounted machine gun, such as the M2 .50 caliber can be mounted on top of the tank turret and manned via a Common Remote Operated System (CROWS). The design of the catamaran allows for both open water and riverine operations, and can carry up to 20 special operation forces that can deploy from the vessel via an inflatable raft carried at the rear of the craft. During World War II, the Soviet Union experimented with attaching tank turrets to landing craft but found that the turrets were too heavy and the engines couldn’t handle the added weight. With scientific advances in lighter more durable material and stronger maritime engines, the X-18 is free from these hindrances and looks to be the future in advanced landing craft.

Today in Military History
14 May 1940

The Dutch surrender. Five days after the German invasion of the Netherlands in World War II the Dutch government surrenders to Germany. Unable to stop the German invasion and bombing of Rotterdam, the Dutch government capitulate in fear of a continued bombing campaign against Dutch cities. Remnants of the Dutch government remained in the Netherlands following the invasion, while the remaining leadership under Queen Wilhelmina fled to England. In England the Dutch established a government-in-exile and began efforts of organizing a resistance and reforming what military forces that had escaped to the Netherlands to join the allied cause. Despite being a neutral party in both the First and Second World Wars, the Netherlands was seen as an integral part of the German invasion plan of France, sweeping north through the Netherlands and Belgium, bypassing the Maginot line to overwhelm the French forces that had fortified those positions. The entirety of the country would not be fully liberated for nearly another 5 years, when on 5 May 1945 Allied forces would finally drive the Germans out.
