Hi wargamers,

just found this game within the depths of bbg and had to smile. Currently I'm reading the book "Die letzte Schlacht" (original title: "The Last Battle" by Stephen Harding, DaCapo Press, Boston), it's about that battle for Castle Itter. "When U.S. and German soldiers joined forces in the waning hours of World War II".

Everybody who wants to know more about the historical background should read the book (1/3 of the book is about the famous French hostages.

I'm looking foreward to play that game and I'm curious how Lee and Gangl will do thier job.

Nice done, David!

Bernd, thanks for the message. Indeed, Harding's book was definitely the primary historical source for the game's background. I found it to be a great, quick read.
