1942: The Pacific Air War
From December of 1941 through the end of the World War, the combined forces
of Japan fought the armed forces of the United States of America over a broad
stretch of ocean peppered with islands. This was the Pacific campaign, one of the
bloodiest, toughest-fought campaigns in all of recorded history. Though all of the
forces involved were essential parts of the eventual outcome, naval aviation played a
special part. The carrier forces of both sides proved their worth time and again.
The idea behind 1942 THE PACIFIC AIR WAR is to re-create some of the adventure
of that time and place and give you a chance to take part in it. To succeed, you have
to avoid that oil- and blood-soaked, fire-on-water grave long enough to be of service
to your country or your Emperor. As a commanding admiral of the navy, a crack
fighter pilot, or just an anonymous Joe tail gunner, you are going to fight for
recognition and just plain survival. The Japanese are moving south and east like a
steamroller, trying to take control of the Pacific. The Americans are fighting back,
desperately hoping to drain the strength from the Japanese juggernaut.
Originally started in 1982 by industry legends Sid Meier and Bill Stealey, Microprose became known throughout the video game industry as a cutting edge computer game designer and publisher. Focusing primarily on high tech military and strategy simulations, the company eventually merged with Spectrum HoloByte by the 1990’s. After going through a series of further changes in ownership, the name and its legacy was wiped out by Infogrames in 2001.
