Siege of Hong Kong, The

Description

Please note that this is a DTP (Desk Top Publishing) game designed on a desktop computer and all components, including the counters which will have to be cut and mounted, are printed on paper. These are designed by some very well-known designers and are a low cost alternative to today's professionally produced games. On rare occasions, some of these games are reproduced by other companies with higher quality components including die-cut counters but most of them are not. If you believe this game to have a professionally produced version, please contact us with your inquiry and we will help you to locate it if it does indeed exist.

On December 8, 1941, Japan launched a land, sea and air assault that conquered all of Southeast Asia and the East Indies in six months.

One important event in this campaign was the capture of Hong Kong. This British colony on the south coast of China was an economic prize the Japanese could not pass up, and a fortress they could not leave standing.

The Siege of Hong Kong is a simulation of the final invasion of Hong Kong Island, which began after five days of shelling on December 18, and ended on December 25, with the surrender of the last surviving defenders.

The 11 x 17" map shows Victoria Island at 800 meters per hex. The 120 back-printed counters show Japanese and Commonwealth companies.
