Excalibur Publishing announces third instalment of War Series from 1C Publishing Theatre of War 3: Korea

North Korean ground forces crossed the 38th Parallel into South Korea at 4:30 A.M. on 25 June 1950, in an armed intervention aimed at reunification. Little did anyone realise that one of the most bitter wars the world has ever seen would ensue, with thousands of casualties on all sides over a three year period. Today, North Korea and South Korea still remain in a state of war, with a shaky ceasefire regularly interrupted by armed skirmishes. The war in Korea was a defining moment for an entire generation that continues to shape modern geo-politics.

    <*>Tactical battles that are generated based on the historical situation . <*>A Strategic overlay that greatly enhances the tactical experience. <*>Non-linear dynamic campaigns that follow the ebb and flow of combat  <*>New units including infantry carrying helicopters in both tactical and strategic modes. <*>Updated squad based control system <*>Engineer Corps allow you to lay mines and clear the battlefield <*>New binocular view feature for total immersion. <*>Detailed replication of authentic Korean landscapes and architecture.
