Introduction

The East Wind Rises

Years before Europe went to war, Japan’s imperial ambitions targeted the divided Chinese Republic. Crippled by political paralysis and centuries of fitful development, China is still not a pushover. With vast reserves of manpower and resources, not to mention a giant landmass, the Republic of China and its temporary ally, the Communists under Mao, can withstand another aggressor. There have been, after all, very many.

Waking the Tiger adds new gameplay options for all players, and has a special focus on the Asian front of the deadliest war in human history.

Main features

National Focus Trees for China:

Guide the Chinese Republic or Communist China through the war, guided by your own vision of the future.

Modified Focus Trees for Germany and Japan:
