Description Edit | History

The four one-map games can be played individually or as two campaign games. Each map comprehensively details the terrain of the Ardennes in four colors. The playing pieces have been designed with attention to historical accuracy. The combat system is dice driven.

The rulebook also contains about ten pages of historical text about the various battles.

The individual folios are:

  • St Vith
  • Clervaux
  • Celles
  • Sedan
