    Description

    3 Squadron of the Australian Special Air Force Service Regiment (SAS) arrived in Vietnam in June 1966. Their objectives were to undertake reconnaissance patrols and to observe enemy movement, as well as to conduct offensive missions deep in enemy territory. They often operated in groups as small as four and moved slowly through thick jungle and bushland. The kill ratio of the SAS was surpassed by no other Australian unit in Vietnam. They were feared by the North Vietnamese Army and the Viet Cong who referred to them as the ‘Ghosts of the Jungle’.
    In the game, it’s 1966 and Sergeant Allen, together with Troopers Baker, Clarke and Dixon of the Third SAS Division must undertake covert missions in the jungle of Vietnam, in an area swamped by Viet Cong. Danger awaits as they face numerous enemies and difficult conditions. They will need to use stealth, tactics and good planning to survive.
    This is book-based solitaire wargame. You play the game, and the book will provide the “enemy”.
