The WarChess Concept was conceived in 2007 whilst watching a world war 2 documentary about the battle of midway and the very moment of conception came when the scene of an Arial film view of formations of Japanese and American air-craft carriers, destroyers, frigates and fighters engaged in all-out combat switched to the scene with the admirals in their war-room pushing the ships around on their war-table. In horror and shock awe at the intense nature of war I just thought "LOOK HOW THEY ARE MOVING MEN AROUND LIKE ITS CHESS !!!", . . And that thought stuck.
The Battle of Midway was a decisive naval battle in the Pacific Theatre of World War 2 between the 4th and 7th of June 1942, only six months after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbour and one month after the Battle of the Coral Sea
2807 men died in just 3 days.
In Honour of all who fell fighting for Freedom, Justice and Peace.
If only all wars could be settled on a chess board.
