Rising Sun Over China: Japan vs China 1931 - 1937
Rising Sun Over China is a two player operational strategic level wargame covering the campaigns in northern China, 1931 to 1937.
These campaigns revolved around the regions of Manchukuo (Manchuria) and Menjiang (Inner Mongolia), and culminated in the Japanese invasion of China proper, taking the capital at Peiping (Peking). There was also the possibility of Soviet intervention. The Japanese objective is to gain control of northern China to provide a strategic advantage for the ensuing Sino-Japanese War that commenced in July 1937. The Chinese objective is to retain control of strategic regions of northern China, thereby forestalling a larger Japanese invasion. Each hex on the map represents 75 kilometers across.
Each turn of play represents one year of operations. Japanese ground units are divisions and brigades. Allied Japanese as well as most Chinese units are at the army and corps level, representing shifting arrays of forces. Air units represent various numbers of sorties needed to accomplish missions.
