best manual ever. A few nits, but given how large it is that's a remarkable accomplishment. Well done, Roger and team!

You are killing me with this "manual porn". I got my notice 2 work days ago. Anywhere from 3-18 more workdays before arrival. Hope it does come mangled like on the other post...

Mine was delivered this morning at 0630. I'm glad I had changed it to "deliver without a signature" option!

Very nice indeed and the font is very readable!

My manual arrived this morning. The Matrix World in Flames manuals were, I thought, the last word in game manuals - and I think the page colouring probably still remains the one to beat (just).

However....

The WITE2 manual is simply filth. It's disgusting. It's manual porn of the very highest quality. It's what a book should be. Hard bound, really well put together, it smells like a book should smell and I can't stop sniffing it, much less caressing it.

The font is perfectly adequate even for an old duffer like me and the pages are well set out with plenty of illustrations.

This superb tome will be more than welcome in my World War II library but I don't expect it will be on the shelf much in the coming months as I will be reading bits at every opportunity.

If one has purchased the game and not the manual then I suggest one reflects seriously on their quite ridiculous decision - self flagellation is probably the order of the day.

Even if one has no intention of ever playing WITE2, but has a love of books, then I would strongly urge the purchase of this magnum opus regardless.

Well done to all concerned. I now need a lie down (with my manual obviously).

Terrific manual.

Purchased the game on 8th May, manual arrived today. Not an undue length of time.

This is well worth the additional expense over the 'Digital Only' version.

Congratulation to the developers for such a fine product.

The manual clearly reflects the underlying game design. Aesthetically the game looks great. Love the map and counter detail. UI is complex but works smoothly.

Just have the minor matter of learning to play this wee beastie with something remotely resembling a degree of competence!!!

I like the way the pages (well, most of them) stay open - nice binding. A masterpiece of a manual.

This takes me back to my childhood, but on steroids.

The manual is super nerd and I love it. Awesome work to all involved and certainly worth the wait! 👍
