The Way of War in '44 Pack

Three ziplock back issues for just $70.00!

The Way of War in '44 package ...

What a great way to introduce yourself (or a friend) to ATO games, or catch up on back issues you've been meaning to get. A price like this is almost "buy 2, get one free." Don't miss it!

If World War II could be described like the movements of a symphony, surely the year 1944 represents the last grand crescendo... the enormous battles with massive results.

Now, the "1944 Way of War" gives you three great back issues that capture three remarkable campaigns.

Kesselschlacht

Kesselschlacht is a simulation depicting the Russian encirclement of the German First Panzer Army in the Ukraine in the Spring of 1944. The German forces were very low on fuel and ammunition and had been caught flat-footed by yet another overwhelming Soviet offensive by a total of nine Soviet armies! The Germans deceived the Soviet forces by moving west, instead of south as the Soviet generals had anticipated, and escaped.

The Pocket at Falaise

At the end of the Gulf War in ’91, cable TV news was full of horrific photos from the “Highway of Death,” the route back to Iraq from Kuwait that seemed, almost literally, to be “paved” with burnt-out vehicles. Those who study WWII remember similar destruction... on the road out of the Falaise Pocket... where 25 German divisions raced for survival, while the Allied armies aimed to turn Hitler’s delayed counterattack on Normandy from failure to war-ending disaster. In one sense, neither side succeeded. But the devastation was something unprecedented.

Hungarian Nightmare

Late December, 1944, while the Allies began to pinch off The Bulge, the Soviets—and their new-found Romanian allies—began the assault on the “twin cities” of Buda and Pest, where 79,000 surrounded Axis defenders held on against heavy odds, made more difficult by “high command” orders to defend everywhere and not to consider a breakout effort. With German mobile reserves and stockpiled supplies expended by the Wacht am Rhein, a mixed force of Germans and Hungarians held on with little hope of relief. By mid February, after the city fell, less than 1000 Axis troops of all kinds made it back to the dwindling safety of German lines.
