GURPS World War II Sourcebooks



All GURPS books require the GURPS Core Rules to play. However, GURPS sourcebooks are rules-light and are easily adapted to any game system.

Dogfaces: the Arsenal of Democracy and its Troops [America]
"They were the Greatest Generation. When the world itself was in danger, they manned the front lines, drove the tanks, landed on the beachheads . . . They were the dogfaces.

Dogfaces is the definitive roleplaying sourcebook for U.S. ground forces in World War II. Whether it's storming the beaches of Normandy, outdueling German tanks in the Ardennes, or retaking the Pacific island by island, the infantry, armor, and artillerymen of the U.S. Army and Marines were the backbone of the Allied war effort. With the attention to detail and historical accuracy that GURPS is known for, Dogfaces gives you all the information you need for roleplaying this vital part of mankind's greatest conflict."

Blitzkrieg [Early Western Front]

"In the spring of 1940, German forces swept through Holland and Luxembourg and set their sights on France. The French forces made their stand at the Maginot Line, confident that the Germans could not attack through the Ardenne Forest. It was a fatal miscalculation that nearly cost the Allies the war.

Blitzkrieg covers the invasion of France, with a special emphasis on the WWII roleplaying opportunities this crucial episode provides. From the initial attacks on the bridges and fortresses, through the evacuation of British forces at Dunkirk and the beginnings of the French Resistance, Blitzkrieg is modeled more along the lines of an adventure module. New rules are kept to a minimum, while the actual history presentation is sprinkled with references to game play."


Frozen Hell: Finland in the Winter War and Beyond
"GURPS WWII: Frozen Hell covers the Finnish campaigns of World War II. Strap on your skis and scrounge for ammo to fight for young Finland's continued freedom, or join the Russian armies trying to secure their border from German attack.

Frozen Hell covers all of the Finnish involvement in WWII, from the struggles of the diplomats through the sacrifices of soldiers on both sides of the wars."

GURPS WWII: All the Kings Men
"Winston Churchill promised the British forces would "never give up, never surrender." Now you can fight as one of His Majesty's own in GURPS WWII: All the King's Men! Watch as the storm clouds gather over Europe in the late '30s . . . and an unprepared England declares war against Germany in its fighting prime. Experience the fear and heroism of Dunkirk, the sweltering seesaw of Africa, and the final triumphs of the Anglo-American campaigns as a battered British Empire pulls victory from the jaws of darkest defeat!
All the King's Men has the same level of background and color found in Iron Cross for German combatants and Dogfaces for American troops. It describes soldiers from all around the British Empire, the way they were recruited, trained, and sent to war, the men who led them, and the battles they won and lost.
Also included are a cross-section of British weapons and equipment - from the very good to the very bad, from sidearms to the battleship King George V - and a host of campaign and adventure ideas for GMs.
So, keep your chin up and get your lads in the thick of it - sharpish!"

Written by Italian WWII enthusiast Michele Armellini, this small book provides a wealth of detail rarely found in English-language references. Rally under the banner of Il Duce and explore the quixotic Italian war today!"

Motor Pool
"World War n raged from the deserts of North Africa to the jungles of the South Pacific, from the mountaintops of the Alps to the beaches of Normandy, across (and under) the high seas, and through the skies above it all. Soldiers in all of these places relied upon the machines of war: bombers, fighters, tanks, jeeps, ships, submarines, landing craft, and much more.

GURPS WWII: Motor Pool has a huge variety of historically accurate vehicles from mankind's greatest conflict. Many of the vehicles were common; others were rare or even unique. From the stodgy General Lee tank to the earliest helicopters and the wildly impractical Maus, Motor Pool has tons of new gear for every GURPS WWII player.

Motor Pool also gathers in one place all the refinements to the vehicle design system that have evolved since the original corebook came out, as well as a new system to describe any WWII-era conveyance in a few simple steps. These additions include scores of new weapons to be fitted on your war machines - some historical and some products of the imagination.

On top of all that, Motor Pool has advice on how to integrate vehicles into a roleplaying campaign, with details on how vehicle crews really lived and fought, from the difficulties of supply to getting their machine moving at all. Whether you're campaigning by land, by sea, or by air, Motor Pool dramatically expands your options!
