|Opening Salvo: War at Sea|
|Player Quick Start Guide|
Dive bombers scream down from the skies, zeroing in on enemy flattops. Battleships blast away with their enormous guns, hurling shells weighing thousands of pounds. Submarines skulk beneath the sea, looking for the chance to fire their deadly torpedoes. To this day, the desperate chase of the Bismarck, the heroic defense of Malta, the defeat at Pearl Harbor, the unlikely victory at Midway, and the long, bitter struggle against the U-boat menace still remind us of the courage and perseverance of countless sailors, airmen, and submariners sixty years ago.
The Axis & Allies Naval Miniatures game is a hard-hitting, action-packed way for you to fight out these furious naval battles on your own kitchen table. Technology, industrial power, and above all human courage decided the fate of the world between 1939 and 1945. Now your skill, luck, and audacity can do the same. With the Axis & Allies Naval Miniatures game, you take command of fleets including powerful battleships, stealthy submarines, fast destroyers, and deadly aircraft.
