From publisher's website:
Gear Krieg takes you back to the Second World War, but with a twist. Imagine for one instant that the wonders promised by visionaries and pulp writers became true -- the conflict we remember would have had a much different, and deadlier, face. Step into the world of the novels; step into the world of Gear Krieg.
Basic Premise: Two-Fisted Pulp Warfare in a World at War!

Back Story: This action-packed tabletop wargame is loosely based on the pulp novels of the 30s and 40s, placed on the historical backdrop of World War II. Though 'history' will be similar to actual events, the subtle (and not so subtle!) introduction of advanced technology and super science will make the outcome quite different. Powered by advanced science, will the darkness of fascism spread across the world, or can brave men and women prevent it?
