BOLT ACTION GERMANY STRIKES EARLY WAR IN EUROPE

In 1939, Germany shattered the peace of Europe with a lightning-fast strike against Poland. The next year, it captured Denmark and Norway, before launching its famous Blitzkrieg against France, Belgium and The Netherlands. In less than two years of fighting, Nazi Germany became the master of mainland Europe.

This new Theatre Book for Bolt Action allows players to command armies of German tanks driving across the continent or to lead the desperate defense of the outgunned Allied armies. New scenarios, special rules and units give players everything they need to recreate the devastating battles and campaigns of the early war in Europe, including the fall of Poland, the breaking of the Maginot Line and the dramatic retreat to Dunkirk.

‘GERMANY STRIKES!’ PREVIEW BY ALESSIO CAVATORE

May 13, 2015 – Bolt Action, Bolt Action – British, Bolt Action – German, Bolt Action – Polish – Tagged: Bolt Action, British, Germany, Polish
Alessio: Following the release of Battleground Europe and Ostfront, the “Theatre books” supplements for Bolt Action continue with Germany Strikes! – Early war in Europe. In this article I’m going to explain in a little more detail what you’re going to find in each of the seven sections of this new book.

PRELUDE TO WAR

This introduction sets the scene for the countdown to World War II, the first great mechanised war, with a discussion of the development of tank technology and the various theories about how they should be used. In particular the section compares and contrasts the development of armoured warfare in France, Britain and Germany and how the theories fared in the Spanish Civil War and Khalkyn Gol. It finishes with arguments to show that the German military were woefully deficient in strategic thinking despite perfecting the tactical and operational skills necessary for mechanised warfare.

The supplement adds new armies, theatre selectors and vehicle rules to cover the novel situations encountered in the early war.

FALL WEISS, POLAND

Fall Weiss covers the German invasion of Poland. It includes four new scenarios ranging from the very first shots of WWII when the SS & Armed German Police stormed the fortified Polish Post Office in Danzig to the fighting retreat of the famous Black Brigade – the Polish armoured unit that never lost a battle and formed the core of the Polish Armour that closed the gap at Falaise in 1944. New rules allow you to deploy armoured trains and to fight inside buildings. New Theatre Selectors include early German Militia, 4th panzer Division, Polish Armour and Cavalry.

OPERATION WESERÜBUNG, DENMARK & NORWAY

Where Hitler ‘caught the bus’ to Norway. This section adds two scenarios, one set in Denmark and one in Norway, and rules for the Neubaufahrzeug PzKpw V model A multi turreted tank. It adds a new Danish Army list with rules for Danish vehicles such as Landsverk light and heavy armoured cars, and theatre selectors for The King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, Kampfgruppe Pellengahr and a generic Allied Norway Defence Force.

FALL GELB, THE LOW COUNTRIES

Fall Gelb was the German feint through the Low Countries to draw the allied armoured divisions north into a pocket created by the mechanised attack through the Ardennes. The section adds five new scenarios ranging from the German air landings on Fort Eben Emael to the British armoured counter-attack at Arras by the Matilda tanks of Frankforce. The armoured actions around Orp between French mechanised cavalry and the panzers were the world’s first great tank battle and this section shows how to replay them.

New theatre selectors are given for the Fallschirmjäger, the Belgian Defenders of Fort Eben Emael, French DLM, DLC and DCR mechanised divisions, British 1st Armoured Division (cruiser tanks) and a 1st Army Tank Brigade (infantry tanks), and German Mobile Infantry Divisions and the various Panzer Divisions that took part in the campaign.

FALL ROT, FRANCE

The section examines the German offensive south into France, including the attack on the Maginot line, and the Italian invasion of the Riviera. The latter adds an hypothetical scenario of a French counterattack on Milan which allows an Italian player to fight an armoured battle. New theatre selectors include a British Dunkirk Perimeter Force, a scratch-built French DLC Division and the Ariete. New scenario rules explain how to game the fortifications of the Maginot Line.

SO THIS IS VICTORY

A final section wraps up the game with a short discussion of the stunning but ultimately flawed victory that doomed Germany in the west and asks if Germany had better options that might have won the war.

NEW SCENARIO RULES

This appendix closes the book with a collection of all of the special rules used throughout the various scenarios. Here you will find rules for:

Armoured Trains

Polish and German Gun Wagons

Command and Assault Wagons

Flat Cars

Self-Propelled Armoured Rail Wagons

Minefields

Clearing Minefields

Some of these rules have been published before, and are collected here for your convenience, and some are entirely new. The largest and most important additions are the rules for Armoured Trains and attacking fortifications.

And to conclude, here’s a message from the book’s author, John Lambshead;

The Blitzkrieg era has always fascinated me because it is the period where new technology dramatically changed the art of war as nations struggled to develop weapons and doctrines in an era of rapid technological advance. Mechanised warfare was an unknown so a wide variety of machines, formations and tactics were tried. This makes for a rich and colourful wargaming environment. Later things settled down and armies began to more resemble each other.

I hope everyone gets as much fun out of using this book as I got from writing it. Many thanks to all at Warlord Games and River Horse for giving me the opportunity.

GERMAN ARMY GRENADIER 1944-1945

The author – Stephen Andrew, is well known for his excellent work and artistry of the German soldier especially in the Osprey “Men at Arms” series, as well as some of the Concord series of publications. These would show an illustration of a soldier and then a description of what he was wearing and the particulars of why he was wearing them. These books are cherished by their owners as an excellent source or research. Stephen started his own series of Publications called “Landser books” (Landser was the name of the common German Infantryman) – in 2010 and this book was published first in 2011 and is still in print.
This title “German Army Grenadier 1944-45” – is the first in a planned series by the author which shows you the equipment and ordinance of the soldier in a specific part of a conflict. I suppose wisely this book is set in the best-selling market – the German army of the late war period. Small in page numbers at 34 pages – it is a fairly considerable amount of information which has been crammed into those pages. The large format pages of 29cm (h) x 22cm (w) are covered with a soft glossy binder and the pages inside are of good quality stock paper. The book is split mostly in a layout of text on one page and the illustrations of each of the soldiers it describes or their equipment on the other page.

HUNGARIAN -The Royal Hungarian Army in World War II

The Royal Hungarian Army was Germany’s largest ally on the Eastern Front, but information about the Hungarian Army in English is rare. Deployed in Ukraine at the beginning of the war, the Hungarian Army was involved in a number of brutal encounters with the Red Army, including stubborn resistance in Transylvania in the summer of 1944, and the brave defense of Budapest in the face of overwhelming odds. The Hungarian Army was a varied and colourful force, ranging from mountain troops and tank units to horse cavalry and specialist infantry. All of these are illustrated in full-colour artwork, with full details about the Hungarian Army’s own, quite distinct uniforms and insignia as well as many of its own weapons and tanks.

TANK ART 2 ALLIED ARMOUR

TANKART Vol. 2 WWII Allied Armor — There are many “how-to” books in today’s world of scale modeling, but none has covered the “why’s”, as well as, the “how-to’s”… the artistic approach… until now. In TANKART, a painting and weathering guide book series, the focus is on taking real-life observations of paint and weathering effects and incorporate the best techniques to replicate them. Within this second volume, WWII Allied Armor, the author will go deeper into his thoughts about why of certain steps as it relates to Allied camouflage schemes. To bring these ideas to life requires a spectrum of processes and techniques which are covered in great detail; including the Hairspray Technique and the new Oil Paint Rendering — plus Pigment Applications and Painting Olive Drab chapters that can be combined in an layered array to tell the story of each model.

The book format is 8.5″ x 9.5″, 208 pages, softcover on high-quality book paper. There are 5 models featured inside, 4 dedicated technique chapters, plus a special bonus figure modeling chapter by Radek Pituch. Inside features over 500 color photos reproduced in a large format.
