Usborne Battlegame book 4 World War II
Written by Andrew McNeil, the four games were:
1 Winter War - Eastern Front 1943 with the Germans defending a railway junction against the Russians, who have 12 moves to capture it
2 Carrier - flat tops and amphibious landings in the Pacific
3 Air Assault - American daylight bombing raid in 1943 against occupied France
4 Beach-Head - D-Day landing game using The Funnies
The Carrier and Beach-Head games were designed by Citadel Boardgames Ltd.
I remember playing the Carrier and Air Assault games quite frequently but not the others. My current copiy has the pieces for these two games unused, but not the others. The rules pages identify the different pieces so they lend themselves to replacement by appropriate figures and models.
