Warlord Games Previews The Luftwaffe Field Division in Bolt Action

The new British & Canadian Sectors field guide that's coming out for Bolt Action won't only focus on the Allied side of the battle line. Facing off against them were part of the Luftwaffe Field Division, a fighting force made up of soldiers that were from the German's airforce wing. In this preview, we get a look at the history behind the unit and some of what they'll be like on the field.
