The forces of fascism have overwhelmed Europe. Britain fights on desperately, and every man and woman must do what is necessary to avoid defeat.

In forgotten corners, darkness stirs. The cycles of the ancient god-things are measured in millennia, but those who serve them plot to take advantage of the chaos of conflict to advance their own schemes.

For an unlucky few, the war collides with evils out of time, and they see and learn things that humanity is ill-prepared to encounter. The truly unlucky survive, and come to the attention of a certain spymaster, code letter N, who has plans for them.

Pressed into service with British intelligence, they are thrown into a desperate two-front war against the Axis forces and the insidious menace of the Cthulhu Mythos.

World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour is a World War Two setting book for Call of Cthulhu from the multi-award-winning team of Dominic McDowall, Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan, Jason Durall, Stuart Boon, Martin Dougherty & Ken Spencer (writers) and Jon Hodgson, Paul Bourne, Scott Neil, Scott Purdy & Steffon Worthington (artists).

You'll need a copy of the Call of Cthulhu rules to make full use of this setting.

World War Cthulhu is a series of settings for the Call of Cthulhu RPG, initially covering World War Two, followed by World War One, The Cold War and World War Three.

Is this the core book of World War Cthulhu or is this one of the source books (with the core for some reason not available on this site)?

How is this different from "Achtung! Cthulhu"? ... can they be used to help flesh each other out, or do they have mutually incompatible bits that keep them from being used together (even though they both are based on CoC)?

PURCHASER
Achtung Cthulhu is metaplot-based, with senior nazis involved in exploiting mythos secrets. World War Cthulhu seems more CoC-like, in that characters investigate mysteries, but at the same time there's a war going on around them and they have "mundane" war tasks as well.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
