The long awaited expansion sourcebook for AE-WWII is now available! The Occult Expansion adds new arcane units and detachments to American and British forces, allowing the Allies access to such supernatural troops as golems and Navajo skinwalkers. This sourcebook also presents two new Axis factions. The occultists of the SS are fierce rivals of the geneticists of the SD and have built themselves an arsenal of eldritch weaponry based upon necromancy, demonology and the ancient power of the runes. The Russian Liberation Army is a force of Russians allied with Germany against Stalin and his Soviet forces. Dominated by a cult of mystics and their inhuman progeny, the ROA exploits its uneasy alliance with the Germans to drive the communists from Mother Russia.

Packed with rich history and exacting detail, the Occult Expansion adds a whole new level to the AE-WWII table top war game. With rules for everything from horse cavalry to werewolves and vampires, this expansion has something for everyone.
