Note: To play Eighth Air Force, you need a copy of The Rise Of The Luftwaffe, Volume One in the Down in Flames Series.

Eighth Air Force is a fast-action card game that allows players to experience the tension and thrill of aerial combat over Europe during World War II. Eighth Air Force provides players with the major fighter and bomber aircraft flown by the German, British, Russian and United States air forces. You'll experience the dawn of the jet age with the introduction of the German Me-262; the pressure of leading British Lancaster heavy bomber formation at night; and the maximum effort needed to sustain the wings of the United States Eighth Air Force.

Included are six new Air Campaigns from the early U.S. Air Force Daylight Bombing missions of 1942 to the Royal Air Force Night Bombing missions of 1944. Also included are four famous air operations: the British Dam Busters Raid of 1943; the German 1942-43 Stalingrad Airlift; the Eighth Air Force Schweinfurt Raids of 1943; and Operation Blue Monday, the destruction of the V-1 and V-2 rocket launch sites.

B17s. My favourite aircraft of WW2 (for a Brit that`s saying something with Spitfires in the race). Adds heavy day bombing and loads of missions/campaigns to the DiF series. Slots in easily with the parent game. I prefered this to the original and I gave that a 5. Can I give this a 6?
