Breaking the Chains simulates a hypothetical future military conflict over the South China and East China Seas around the year 2021. Conflicting claims of sovereignty have roiled those "near seas" since the Cold War. After decades of patient diplomacy, Beijing's new navy offers military options for finally asserting sovereignty over prizes within the First Island Chain - that string of islands which runs from the Ryukus south through Taiwan, the Philippines and then curls back to the mainland via Malaysia. Breaking the Chains presumes that China comes to blows with a Southeast Asian country in a conflict that could expand to possibly include Australia, India, Japan, the United States.
