Great War at Sea:
East Indies Campaigns

For hundreds of years, the Netherlands maintained dominion over a vast empire of overseas possessions. By the early 1900’s, many of these territories had been lost to Great Britain, however one of significant import remained: the East Indies, which would later become modern day Indonesia. Little Holland controlled the resources of an island empire of some 40 million people, rich in the resources – oil, rubber, tin and other metals - that would ultimately drive the industrial economies of the 20th century.

Covetous eyes watched the development of this region with interest. Japan made numerous inroads with trade missions, while more radical voices called for outright conquest, Germany expressed interest in obtaining island bases there (if not overall acquisition), while Britain stood by, intent that no other nation which could pose a threat to her interests should gain control the islands. Fears of Japanese aggression led the Dutch to consider a vastly expanded Koninklijke Marine with modern dreadnoughts to defend their prize.

East Indies Campaigns is a scenario book for the Great War at Sea series, focusing on battles which could have and in some cases did take place in and around the Indonesian Archipelago between 1914 and 1917. You get 45 new scenarios to tell these stories, interwoven with background text in our story-arc format.

East Indies Campaigns includes no pieces or maps. You’ll need either Great War at Sea: U.S Navy Plan Orange OR Second World War at Sea: Java Sea (for the maps), plus Jutland Second Edition, Cruiser Warfare and Rise of the Dragon (for the pieces) to play the scenarios.
