Conflict of Heroes: Guadalcanal - The Pacific 1942

Dec 7, 1941 - War explodes across the Pacific when the Japanese attack the American fleet at Pearl Harbor. By May 1942, Japan has spread across the Pacific and is threatening America's supply lines to Australia after building an airfield on the island of Guadalcanal.

The United States counters with an ill-prepared occupation of Guadalcanal's airfield with the 1st Marine Division. The Japanese retaliate with vengence, cutting off the Marines by sea and pouring in thousands of Japanese reinforcements. A desperate struggle ensues, as the Americans try to hold on to their tiny foothold against the might of the Japanese Empire.

Guadalcanal continues the multi-award winning Conflict of Heroes series. In this game, players command platoons and companies of individual squads and tanks to resolve the same tactical dilemmas that commanders faced during some of the most ferocious engagements of WWII.

In Guadalcanal, the Americans track VPs, but the Japanese track Bushido. If a Japanese commander 'loses face' during battle, his command and men's morale can crumble. This is a groundbreaking new concept that forces players to think like their 1942 counterparts.

I really don't know how much time and effort he is willing to invest in learning and playing these games. But if he were willing to run some sort of AI bot, you could check out the COIN series from GMT. They are generally highly regarded. They include:

#Andean Abyss

#Cuba Libre

#Liberty or Death: The American Insurrection

#Colonial Twilight: The French-Algerian War, 1954-62

#Falling Sky: The Gallic Revolt Against Caesar

#Gandhi: The Decolonization of British India, 1917 – 1947

#Pendragon: The Fall of Roman Britain

#Fire in the Lake

And, I have a feeling I am missing several.
