I'll be checking in on this thread now and then and hope I can answer any questions you may have.
WWI: Pure Sea Battle of Jutland, Verdun(with maybe cutups cardboard tile setups of the forts, to show battle damage), any type of WWI minis. Again the Verdun game could have so many rounds to it.
I am not ignoring any setups with US forces, but, you have allot of battles where they were not involved. Thanks, Pellulo
almost every war is a sideshow compared to the war between Hitler and StalinAC wrote:Let's not muddy the waters here. We all want an eastern front axis and allies game surely. Not taking anything away from Imphal and Kohima obviously but I can't really see that selling. Not as much public interest even though it marked a more than significant Japanese defeat. Stalingrad on the other hand essentially decided the entire European theatre. Battles like Tobruk, etc were sideshows compared to the war between Hitler and Stalin.
The thing about the Eastern Front is it had 2 of the largest city sieges in human history (Stalingrad and Berlin), and a third siege that is the longest lasting in human history (Leningrad), AND the largest tank battle in history (Kursk). It involved more men, more machines, and can be argued that more was at steak then any other war.AC wrote:Very very good point. Touché
Come to think of it...... I can't think of any war in history that comes close to the eastern front alone. Iwo Jima was utterly brutal but still hard to compare to Stalingrad.
Just the names of the battles resonated in the minds of anyone that has knowledge of ww2. Barbarossa. Leningrad. Moscow. Stalingrad. Kursk. Berlin. It was one fiery bloodbath after another.
Make a list of the great battles of WW2 half of them are from the Eastern Front
