The Game
By the time of the invasion of Okinawa in April of 1945, the US Navy devised a plan to help ward off the expected kamikaze attacks during the battle for the island. In order to provide an early warning system of impending kamikaze attacks, the US Navy established 16 radar picket stations around the island. Destroyers manning these stations - in most cases - had a Fighter Direction Team to coordinate and call fighters to a station to combat the incoming kamikazes. Despite these efforts the kamikazes still managed to get through and inflict horrific damage to the US fleet.

Picket Duty is a solitaire game where you - as captain of a Fletcher Class destroyer- must protect the fleet and fend off kamikazes while performing picket duty off Okinawa. The game covers the time period from late March to late June, 1945. To win you must survive. Needless to say, your task will not be easy.
