Equatorial Clash

SNAFU Small Battles #3

“Los gobiernos del Perú y del Ecuador afirman solemnemente su decidido propósito de mantener entre los dos pueblos relaciones de paz y amistad, de comprensión y de buena voluntad, y de abstenerse, el uno del otro, de cualquier acto capaz de perturbar esas relaciones.”

Rio Protocol peace agreement,
Rio de Janeiro, January 29, 1942.


Equatorial Clash is a two player wargame simulating the 1941 border war between Perú and Ecuador, a war featuring Czech tanks, Italian and American planes, former British ships, and, for the first time in the Americas, an airborne operation. The overall 200-year border dispute between both countries, only resolved as late as 1998, was typical of many border Latin American conflicts, but, as R. B Saint John points out, “if [it] was at all unique, it was in its complexity, durantion, and intensity.”
