This game recently caught my interest. But I have a few questions ...

Is the situation fluid, at all mobile, or is it a static slugfest?

The map and counter art looks gorgeous, are they 5/8th inch counters, are the hexes adequately larger than the counters?

And finally, do you like the game? Does it get played, would you buy it again?

Thanks and happy holidays!

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

The situation is slugfest, but there are enough interesting rules and situations to make it a dramatic slugfest. If the Soviets make a breakthrough then you'll see the real fireworks go off.

I do like the game, but I've found that WWII games set in Europe are not a high priority on my play list so I traded it for another game. But it is good.

I played this for the first time the other day. I had to download the erratta and the rules were not real clear. Once I figured it out the game was pretty good. As gittes said its definitely a bloody slugfest. I will play this again. The counters really suck and are hard to read. The maps nice enough though.
