“Why do all my generals want to destroy my bridges?”
– Generalfeldmarschall Walther Model
Yesterday, the game group got together to fight our Operation Market Garden summer campaign finale – The Battle of Arnhem. This would follow a long tradition of day-long Flames of War mega battles the group has played, and for my money, was the best yet. On with the photos!
After several hours of hard fighting, the Germans emerged victorious, but it was a very close game, and I hope everyone else had as much fun as I did.
One of the interesting aspects of a game this size, are the distances involved – as you can probably tell from my photos, I really was only focused on my own sector of the table, with little real knowledge of what was happening on the other side of the bridge. This made for some tense decisions for both teams, and an ever-evolving plan.
Thanks go to Tom and Kevin for offering to be overall commanders for both sides, during the campaign. I can’t wait to play again soon, and really have an itch to put my Russians back on the table!
