The following three mini-campaigns cover the fight for MiG Alley January 1951 to December 1951, the “Black Tuesday” UN B-29 attack and the interception of the ChineseTaehwa-do Island mission in October and November 1951, and the fight for air supremacy over Korea from February 1952 to July 1953. A bonus mini-campaign is also included that covers US Navy and Marine operations from 3 July 1950 to 18 November 1952. The book also features some of the Korean War’s top aces including James Jabara, George Davis, Frederick “Boots” Blesse, Boris Bokach, Gregorii Ges, Nikolay Ivanov, and Li Han. The scenarios can be played individually, linked to form mini-campaigns, or combined as one grand campaign.
