Wargame with die-cut counter : a Decade in the Trenches
On August 20, 1980, Iraq invaded its neighbor Iran for a limited war with multiple objectives that was promised to be rapid: recover territories that the two powers were fighting over, counter the influence of the Iranian revolution and its leader Ayatollah Khomeini. but the offensive quickly bogged down and territorial gains were minimal. In 1981, Iran counterattacked and liberated most of its territory in early 1982. Despite a ceasefire, it was Iran's turn to invade Iraq in order to overthrow Saddam Hussein. For another six years the two regional powers would clash for minimal gains.
A Decade in the Trenches lets you replay the entire war with a simple system, one-year turns, units representing brigades and divisions, and 80 km hexes.
