On May 8, 1945, after 6 years of war, the German Wehrmacht surrendered to the Allies in Berlin. War in Europe was finally over. 1945, however, saw the final throes of a powerful military; as the American and British forces pushed forward on the western front, Soviet forces advanced tirelessly from the east, closing in on Berlin. Struggling to defend their homeland, German soldiers proved to be fierce warriors, even when outnumbered or encircled. The war would not end as easily as expected.
Now, 70 years after the end of the war in Europe, Richard Borg & the Days of Wonder Team are happy to offer you four new scenarios to commemorate the last battles of 1945. Relieve the men of the 79th US Infantry trapped in the two encircled towns of Hatten & Rittershof; take command of the 44th British Brigade and its flamethrower tanks during Operation Veritable; cross the Rhine with the men of the “All American” 82nd Airborne; or gather your friends to assault – or defend – the infamous Seelow Heights, last line of defense before Berlin, in a massive Overlord battle.
