“Normandy ’44,” 2nd edition, provides interesting coverage of D-Day and the weeks beyond in a traditional wargame format, but the rules and set-up charts could have used a bit more editing.
‘Blue Cross, White Ensign’ focuses on the Imperial Russian Navy’s battles with its Swedish and Turkish opponents. John Paul Jones would have played this game—and so should you.
‘Brave and Noble Fights’ covers two battles of the 1894–1895 Sino-Japanese War, the Battle of the Yalu and the Battle of Wei Hai Wei.
‘Warfighter: The Tactical Special Forces Card Game’ from DVG is a slick, innovative game for 1-6 players with a variety of missions set in the Middle East and South America.
The rulebooks for GMT’s ‘Next War – Taiwan’ can appear daunting but offer basic and advanced versions so players can choose the level they want.
‘Fleet Commander Nimitz’ is a solitaire boardgame of the naval war in the Pacific.
‘Enemy Coast Ahead: The Dambuster Raid’ is a deep simulation of RAF bomber operations during WW2 and strongly narrative-driven, but luck can play too big a role.
