December 16, 1944.
After a period of fog, rain and snow blankets the area, 3 German Armies unleash 26 Divisions against thinly held American lines in the Ardennes Forest of Belgium and Luxembourg. The objective of the Germans is to push through the Ardennes, then cross the Meuse River and head for Antwerp. Hitler hopes to split the Allied Armies apart and smash their vital supply port at Antwerp. Can the Americans stop them?
Historically, the German Army trampled the American VIII Corps and penetrated within 2 miles of the Meuse. The Americans stubbornly fought the Germans at many critical crossroads slowing and then stopping Germany's Elite Forces. Historically, the German offensive achieved little except to create a "bulge" in the American line.
Ardennes '44: The Battle of the Bulge explores this fascinating Campaign with a detailed order of battle and an extremely accurate Ardennes Game Map which covers the area from the Our River to the Meuse. Ardennes '44: The Battle of the Bulge covers the period from December 16th to the 26th. Two shorter one-Map Scenarios are included which cover the initial stages of the German attack.
