The attack on Pearl Harbor, which now reaches its 75th anniversary, marked the official entry of the USA into World War II. The role played by warships in that and many other conflicts was essential and Alvin Cheung (Sishou Playing Cards), a big fan of these magnificent vessels, has created two decks inspired by them: WORLD WAR II WARSHIPS Playing Cards.
These cards are full of history and details. While one of the decks honors the United States Navy, the other recalls the British Royal Navy, both allies in the territorial fight against military forces headed by the Japanese. Each court card shows a different ship along with an ink portrait of its captain. Numbered cards have a watermark with the related navy force. Suits have been customized and the printing includes the use of metallic inks to stand out some details of the design.
The tuck cases will be deluxe editions with the embossing and gold and silver foil. They will be really nice decks that will delight card fans and military stuff collectors. Legends Playing Card Company will also ensure and excellent print quality.

May these cards also serve as a distant memory of human behaviors that only create death and destruction.
