Never Get Out of the Boat

Vietnam, 1964. The most wrenching US engagement of the Cold War would be far more than GI versus Charlie. It set tribesman against nationalist, Buddhist against Catholic, Mandarin against villager, and of course Northerner against Southerner - even among the Communists. As revolutionary change burned through that ancient civilization, Washington would apply its armament and its operations research. To get out, the US counterinsurgency would have to motor deeper and deeper in. In the end, culture and will would overcome technology and math and end of the primacy of industrial might in modern warfare.

Volume IV in the COIN Series dives headlong into the momentous and complex battle for South Vietnam. Renowned game designer and modern warfare expert Mark Herman joins series creator Volko Ruhnke to present a unique multi-faction treatment of the Vietnam War.Fire in the Lake takes 1-4 players on US heliborne sweeps of the jungle, Communist infiltration of the South, Trail interdiction, and air defense of the North, and then into Allied conferences, Saigon politics, graduated escalation, and the media war.

This printing is identical to the 2nd Printing, except that any known errata will be corrected.
