(NEW) The Way of War in '45 Pack

Three ziplock back issues for a great price!

The Way of War in '45 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 1945 represents the last grand crescendo... the enormous battles with massive results.

Now, the "1945 Way of War" gives you three great back issues that capture three remarkable campaigns.

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.

Fortress Berlin

"Der Führer lebt und leitet Abwehr Berlin!" ("The Führer lives and is defending Berlin!") screamed out Martin Bormann's final message on April 30th, 1945. Fortress Berlin is a two-player tactical / operational simulation of the last major battle of World War II in Europe, the assault on Berlin.

The game features complete and comprehensive solitaire and multi-player rules. Players can assume the role of Hitler's underlings and squabble over who is "truer" and more devoted to the Fuehrer's cause. Or play out the rivalry between Zhukov and Konev to be the first to capture Berlin and present the city to Stalin.

Hitler's Stalingrad: Breslau 1945

After being cut off and isolated in mid-February 1945, the German garrison at Breslau, some 50,000 men, defied all odds holding onto the city for almost a week AFTER Berlin fell! Hitler had ordered the city be held at all costs, believing Soviet forces tied up there were thus not taking part in any assault on Berlin. The defending garrison finally surrendered just days before the war officially ended (with the Gauleiter in charge fleeing the city by air to escape capture).

Special rules model rubble and barricades; the multi-level city buildings; surprise and ambush during combat; Soviet command directives; the armored train "Porsel"; remotely controlled Goliaths; and the possible use of nerve gas (Breslau was the major repository of both Germany's remaining stocks of the little AFVs and also the deadly nerve agent Tabun).

Counters - 324 full color 9/16" die-cut pieces
