Here is a hint.

Requires CC:E and CC:Med, covers actions in in the west, and centered on a critical 10 week period in the war. Beyond that I cannot say further, those who attend WBC and bother to drop by the playtest sessions will know. So if you weren't planning on going, you need to get there.

Must be Kursk, the largest armored battle of all time.

Snort.

If you can move Lancaster about 90 mins closer to me, I'll check it out. 6 hours (total) driving is just too long for a day trip these days. I'm still bitter that they moved Fall In to Lancaster...Gettysburg is the perfect day trip distance from me. And they didn't even consult me first .

Warsaw was 63 days - that's almost 10 weeks. But it doesn't say Partisans are required, so...

How about Operation Olive (and the Battle of Rimini)?

Blitzkrieg!

France and the low countries?

Perhaps with a bit of hypothetical Seelowe?

Wikipedia defines the Battle of the Bulge as happening December 16, 1944 through January 25th, 1945, which is a few days short of six weeks. so the given data do not seem to fit.

Good shout. I was thinking Bulge but thought the Americans would have it covered. A few odd Brits would spice things up.

AFAIK Warsaw was never part of the west front during WWII. whistle

I'm afraid it took longer than ten weeks.

What about the final stages of the Tunisia Campaign, from Kasserine to Tunis?

Compass did last around 10 weeks (8 Dec 1940 - 9 Feb 1941) you just have to leave out those 600 tanks

The combined campaigns of Denmark/Norway, Low Countries and France in 1940 would be exactly 10 weeks. (April-June.)

Seeing that the French/Allied Minors deck is the most underrepresented one in all of the published scenarios for the E/M system, I for one would love to see a BP featuring them.

As it's Tuesday, don't forget about those of us who would love to be there, but can't. In other words, someone please please please fill us in.

Thanks!
