Bittereinder

Bittereinder is a two-player simulation of the entire 2nd Anglo-Boer War of 1899 to 1902. The British Empire was at war with the Boers, the white tribe of Africa. The war would straddle the centuries, ending on May 31, 1902. It was a bitter defeat for the Boers and a victory bereft of glory for the world's mightiest empire.

A Fatal Attraction

A Fatal Attraction (ATO #20) focuses on the ill-fated Gallipolli campaign in 1915 (championed by Winston Churchill), that came closer to success than the Allies imagined. Though both sides suffered terribly, the campaign gave birth to a national sense of "ANZAC" and made famous the man later called "Ataturk," the Father of the Turks.

Defeat into Victory

"Defeat into Victory" sets up the 1944-45 battles in Burma. Their fortunes declining everywhere but determined to pre-empt any Allied attack, the Japanese launched an offensive of their own in May, the largest they ever launched outside of China, against the Allied positions in and around Imphal and Kohima. The battles that raged among the jungles and mountainous hillsides of the Indian and Burma frontier, and the subsequent Allied victory that followed in July, marked a fundamental and permanent shift in the war.

The Allied offensive in March 1945 was one marked by extensive planning and preparation, as well as bold and daring maneuvers that not only took the Commonwealth and Indian forces across the Irrawaddy River to Rangoon, but crushed the defending Imperial Japanese Burma Area Army.
