Enter a new era of warfare with Bolt Action: Korea. This new supplement is packed with new units and special rules to help you recreate this forgotten conflict!
The Korean War
Fought between 1950 and 1953, the Korean War was one of the first major conflicts of the Cold War. Backed by the Soviet Union and Communist China, the North Korean regime battled for control of the peninsula against the South Korean government and a 21-country UN task force.
The Korean War is unique and interesting in the annals of world and military history in its own right. An aspect rarely discussed is the cultural implications of so many Western, non-Western and European nations fighting against combatants from the Orient. Due to the vast cultural diversity of so many nations fighting in such a geographically small area, cultural differences would have a significant impact on how the combatants treated each other on the field of battle. These differences went beyond simple language barriers, they included problems in logistics, religion, personnel replacements and the method in which war was conducted.
With army lists for all five major combatants, you’ll also be able to include the major United Nations ground forces involved; France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Greece, Turkey and many others.
Play the North Koreans, Chinese, South Koreans, the U.S. and the Commonwealth forces. There is something for every player of Bolt Action 2 to experience for the Korean War.
