Fighting Formations Grossdeutcshland Division's Battle for Kharkov by GMT Games

 The new histories show us that Kursk was not the blood letting for the German Army that we were led to believe. The defensive battles after Kursk are really where the Wehrmacht was steadily depleted of machines and trained men. This add-on lets you game the Third Battle of Kharkov, but also a few of the defensive battles going into early 1944.


Box Contents


 This is a list of what comes in the box:

  • 1 back-printed 8.5” x 11” player aid card
  • 3 back-printed 22˝ x 34˝ mapsheets
  • 2 back-printed 22˝ x 17˝ mapsheets
  • a half sheet of die-cut counters
  • a 24-page Playbook 


Counters

 Fighting Formations Grossdeutschland Division's Battle for Kharkov is an add-on to the original very well received game. The included battles show the deterioration of the German Army's quality and quantity. The game covers scenarios that show German victory and defeat historically. The original game was designed by Chad Jensen of Combat Commander game. This add-on was done by Bryan R. VanNortwick. The units that are added to the base game are:

  • The Soviet SU-76M “Suka” open-topped assault gun;
  • SU-85 tank destroyer;
  • T-34C;
  • T-26b light tank;
  • The German Mk VI Tiger I
  • PzIII M;
  • 7.5cm PaK 40 anti-tank gun;
  • Low quality troops representing GD artillerymen forced to fight on the front lines





Play


  This is a great addition to an already great game. Gamers have been clamoring for more in the series because it is so good. Hopefully we will see more Division battles start to show up as was originally planned. Thank you GMT Games for letting me review this product.

 This is a link to my review of the base game:

  1. Any review of the scenarios themselves? Or is this just more of the same?
