Great War at Sea: Cruiser Warfare
In the summer of 1914, Germany's East Asia Cruiser Squadron represented the High Seas Fleet's finest. Superbly trained crews made Admiral Maximilian Graf von Spee's fleet the envy of the China Station.
But when war broke out, this tiny force found itself far from home and threatened by the powerful Japanese Navy. Spee decided to force his way home around the world. After an epic journey across the Pacific, his cruisers met their end off the Falkland Islands.
Cruiser Warfare gives the Great War at Sea series its broadest scope yet: the entire world. British, German, Japanese, Italian, Austro-Hungarian, Russian, and Dutch ships begin as they did in August 1914. The German player must disrupt Allied commerce and try to get the cruisers home. The Allied player must track them down and destroy them. (from the back box cover)
