Description: This game simulates the entire US Vietnam War from 1965 - 1975. The campaign game can be considered 'Strategic' due to its potential length and scope, but the game is more easily played in 'scenarios' which simulate a more limited duration. Each turn represents one week, so a campaign game could potentially span 500 turns! A unique 'operations' mechanism helps limit how much can be accomplished in any given game turn which makes the subject somewhat less imposing.
