In October 1944, the U.S. 1st Army begins its attack on the *Sledded Line north of Aachen. Heayy artillery pounds pillboxes, barbed wire, and mine fields forseveral days before the assault.

Objective The Americans immediately win a major victory if they control all 3 victory objective markers at the end of any game round.  The Germans immediately win a major victory if they control all 3 victory objective markers at the end of game round 5 or at the end of a later game round.

Otherwise, the nation that controls 2 victory objective markers at the end of game round 10 wins a minor victory.

  • Victory objective marker 1 is the hex with the pillbox on map 12B.
  • Victory objective marker 2 is the hex with the pillbox on map 4B.

Reinforcements -

The Germans receive the following reinforcements during the Status Phase of round 5:
2 Squad Bases
- 4 Regular Infantry
- 3 Elite Infantry
- 1 Officer

- 1 Tiger I
- 2 Panzer IVs
- 2 SdKfz 251 Half-Tracks

Special Rules
  • The Americans start with 3 available command.
  • The Americans may draw 2 Strategy cards instead of 1 at the start of each Status Phase.
  • At the beginning of each Command Phase, the Americans may spend 1 command to retrieve a discarded "Bombing Run" card and place it face up in their HQ area.
  • If the Americans control victory objective marker 2 or 3 at the end of any round, replace Artillery 1 deck with Artillery 2 deck (all face up cards remain in play).
  • Siegfried line Pillboxes are stronger then normal, so tanks firing at them still get the +3 to range but do not get the +3 Concussive Firepower bonus

The stream is Shallow.

Played this night with my friend.
Due to lucky rolls for USA and at the same time unlucky for GER we ended up at the end of round 2.
Too many Sherman and too many troops (with annihilated GER machineguns).
Tiger tank was really too far from entering.

The whole of northern Norway was covered with snow to depths which none of our soldiers had ever seen, felt, or imagined. There were neither snow-shoes nor skis - still less skiers. We must do our best. Thus began this ramshackle campaign. (1940)
