Heroes of the Falklands brings you to the windswept, rocky landscape of the Falkland Islands—or Islas Malvinas, as they are known by the Argentines. The brief but brutal war in 1982 began after the Argentines unexpectedly seized Stanley, the capital of the Falklands, and the island of South Georgia from small garrisons of British Royal Marines. The British government responded by sending a large naval task force to the South Atlantic to reclaim the disputed islands. Here, the fierce ground combat that occurred during the war is depicted as only the immersive squad-level Lock ’n Load Tactical Series can.
The Expansion Module A Ring of Hills is now back in print as a COMPLETE GAME. With 13 scenarios Heroes of the Falklands feature the Argentine seizures of Stanley and South Georgia and all of the major land battles, from the British Paras’ costly but morale-boosting assaults on Darwin Hill and Goose Green, to the daring commando raid on Top Malo House, across East Falkland to the climatic battles for the ring of hills around Stanley. Two what-if scenarios depict Argentine opposition to the British landing at San Carlos and a last-ditch fight for control of Stanley. Put on your cold-weather combat gear and bring along a pair of night-vision goggles: the fate of the islands is at stake!
