When the planning began for D-Day: British we knew we were going to include the British airborne forces. This also gave us an opportunity also begin looking at them for Mid-war, focusing on their early actions in Tunisia and Italy, and so Red Devils was born.
Like the All American booklet also covers the Rangers, we also choose to include the Commandos in Red Devils, as well as all the Unit Cards and Command Cards to use with these forces.
What's In The Book?
Red Devils contains background on the British 1st Airborne Division covering their origins, and campaigns in 1942 and 1943. Inside you will also find background on the Commandos and their actions in the middle years of the war.
An expanded Eighth Army Force Diagram can also be found in Red Devils. This allows you to field a Parachute Company and Commando Troops alongside the Formations found in Armoured Fist. Airborne support units have also been included in the Force diagram, allowing you to take additional support options like 75mm Airlanding Batteries, an Airlanding 6 pdr Anti-tank Platoon, and an Airlanding Recce Platoon.
The special rules section covers the unique rules of both the Red Devil paras and the Commandos.
You can field either a Parachute Company, or a Commando Troop from Red Devils.
What Else? Red Devils also includes a British Airborne Uniforms painting guide, with a step by step of how to paint the British paras’ famous Denison Smock. Like all our books Red Devils also includes a Basing Guide showing you on how to create the different teams you will field.
Red Devils also includes two packs of cards. The first is a pack of Unit Cards for all the new Parachute, Airborne and Commando Units included in Red Devils.
The second pack of cards is eight Command Cards that can be used in addition to the Armoured Fist Command Cards. Includes a 16pg booklet, Unit Cards and Command Cards. Everything you need to use your existing Para or Commando Force in Mid War.
