Any recommendations, especially for games that cover the entire conflict (which I know was a huge one)?

Thanks

The game Axis Empires: Dai Senso! has a 1937-1939 scenario that takes place in China. In it China is subdivided between 4 or 5 separate governments/warlords (but controlled by the same player).

But the game is mostly designed to do the whole pacific theater (including China) from 1937 to 1945.

It's certainly the most detailed one, but also the one that takes longest and has the worst and most convoluted set of rules.

In addition to the games mentioned in the geeklist there's also Rising Sun over China covering the first few years of the war.

True on the War of the Suns rules.

Nice to have on the subject matter if you dont play it though.
