From their announcement:
“Battle for Breslau 1945” is now available from the Books section of the online store. The book is a 54 page pdf and costs £5. Specifically designed for Rules of Engagement, it can be easily adapted to other skirmish systems. A preview of the pdf may be seen here (PDF link).
Festung Breslau saw some of the most intense urban fighting of the whole war. The inhabitants were besieged for almost three months as the Soviet Sixth Army fought its way through the shattered streets towards the centre until, four days after Berlin had fallen, the city surrendered on the 6th May, 1945.
Players have the opportunity to either defend Breslau as the besieged Germans, taking up arms as forces from Independent Fortress Infantry Regiment (IFIR) “Mohr” and SS IFIR “Besslein” as well as fallschirmjager troops. Or attempt to overrun the defences as forces from the Soviet Sixth Army.
This book presents 8 scenarios that can be played alone or as part of a campaign. As well as the scenarios this book also contains two new Orders of Battle for the IFIR “Mohr” and a Soviet Assault Platoon. The scenarios are designed for Rules of Engagement but are easily adaptable to other games.
In other Great Escape Games news, we have some new images of US infantry added to the webstore – 57mm anti-tank gun, LMG team, and a sniper team.
We’re looking forward to the Colours show in Newbury on the 11th and 12th of September where we’ll have some new offers on army deals and can chat about new projects in the pipeline.
