(NEW) The Eastern Front Way of War Pack

Three ziplock back issues for a great price!

Hitler personally intervened to assign the code name Barbarossa to his plan to invade and conquer the Soviet Union. He named it after the nickname for Germanic Holy Roman Emperor Frederick I. In 1190, while leading the Third Crusade, Barbarossa drowned and his body was lost. Ironic of Hitler to choose such a murky symbol: a Crusader who failed in his holy mission to the East.

Here is your chance to explore the nature of fighting on the Eastern Front, from the grand strategic operations to the gritty tactical hand to hand combat.

Welcome to the Eastern Front Way of War, with three totally different looks at operations across three different years, from 1941 through 1944.

Four Roads To Moscow

Operation Barbarossa in 1941 was perhaps the grandest military campaign of all time. So why did it fail? This Annual issue contains FOUR different games by four different designers who have drawn some very different and startling conclusions about what really happened, and modeled it in four very different approaches. "Four Roads" offers four complete simulations that will provide hours of challenging play and comparison.

Circle of Fire

A small town sitting astride an important crossroads, held by a very mixed bag of defenders in the middle of the worst winter in decades. Surrounded, greatly outnumbered, and subjected to almost constant attack. Bastogne? Not quite....

Though now largely forgotten the successful defense of Cholm in 1942 by Kampfgruppe Scherer ranks as one of the great small unit sieges of the Second World War and perhaps of all time. Despite being assailed on all sides by Soviet troops desperate to grab any shelter from the cold, Hitler has declared Cholm a festung: there will be no withdrawal. In the waist-deep snow and sub-zero temperatures the battle will be fought to the last man and the last grenade.

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.
