High Quality, High Content...  Written by Robert Herzner, Dale Holstrom, Peter Bogdasarian, Jeff Newell, Olivier Revenu, Yvan Descotes, and Mark Walker, with additional tactical input from Sergeant Todd Beckham, Line of Fire is stuffed full of the previews, analyis, and scenarios that gamers love. We know. We read it, we play it ourselves.   Inside you'll find articles about our upcoming games, including a detailed diatribe on Heroes of the Blitzkrieg. There's also the most in-depth examination of our joint venture with Matrix Games, the PC game, Heroes of Stalingrad (including some new screens) yet. That isn't all. We take you to the the Malvinas (Ring of Hills), the Carolinas (Flintlock), and the :st="on">Golan Heights (No middle Ground).

Move This, Shoot That... But Line of Fire isn't just about previews. This issue also includes articles on tactics for the upcoming Day of Heroes, the armies in the soon to be re-released Forgotten Heroes, the Paras in Swift and Bold, and tanks in Band of Heroes.  This is the magazine that teaches you when to move, and what to shoot.

Play This... But hey, we're all gamers. Reading is great, but we all all itching to play. As Tom Brady once said, "Well done is better than well said." We hope to scratch your playing itch in Line of Fire issue one. We have included five (we counted) new scenarios. There's three for Lock 'n Load, one for Island War Deluxe (including a cool, new variant that changes the game from impusle to turn-based play), and one for our popular World at War.

And each scenario comes with a brand-new, professional quality map. There's a new jungle for Island War Deluxe with big, LnL-type hexes. The desert makes its first appearance in "Snatch and Grab," a Day of Heroes skirmish. On the bigger side of things is "Dark Days," a Band of Heroes scenario that feels more like a campaign, as the tanks and men from Panzer Lehr are carried from map to map as they try to punch through to Bastone. And finally, elements of the Soviet 33rd Motor Rifle defend a river crossing against Team Bravo.

Oh yeah, we almost forgot. Baroud D'honneur, gives players an up close and personal taste of Lock 'n Load: Heroes of the Blitzkrieg. The scenario depicts a desparate fight for a canal bridge and comes complete with its own maps and counters. This is some of the best art we have seen in the Lock 'n Load franchise, and a module we just can't wait to get our hands on.

Original electronic
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.
