Mud & Blood (CoE-series):

Mud & Blood

After the disastrous defeat at Tannenberg in August 1914, Russia redeemed itself by defeating the Austrians in Galicia as well as the Germans in the Ivangorod-Warsaw campaign. Now having proved being able to fight and defeat the Germans, the Emperor Tsar Nikolai, still honoring the agreement with France, wanted to take the battlefield back in to Germany again. This time aiming directly to the heartland of Germany. Silesia. Hindenburg, the German commander of the Eastern Front had other plans. Through timely and accurate intelligence, Hindenburg knew exactly what was in the making, and a plan took form to repeat his crushing victory at the Battle of Tannenberg, by hitting the Russian flank as it moved into Silesia. By yet another masterpiece in logistical planning and execution, the Germans managed to move the reinforced Ninth Army under the command of the later legendary General August von Makensen by 80 trains per day in less than 10 days to a position outside Thorn in order to attack the advancing Russian steamrollers’ right flank.

The Battle of Lodz was to become one of the largest and most complex battles of the maneuver-period of World War 1. Deep operations, flank maneuvers and encirclements under harsh winter conditions made command and control chaotic.
The Game Mud & Blood recreate this setting making it a perfect re-encounter battle where both players need to carefully plan their moves in order not to create a disaster.

Polar Storm (WWIIB-series):

Polar Storm

The Stavka decided to move against the German forces in the Arctic in late 1944. The operation was to be undertaken jointly by the Karelian Front and the Northern Fleet. The main operations were to be conducted by the 14th Army, which had been in the Arctic since the beginning of the war. Meretskov was provided with several units specially configured to meet the requirements for operations in the far north. The 126th and 127th Rifle Corps consisted of light infantry with a number of ski troops and naval infantry. The Soviets also had 30 engineer battalions, numerous horse- and reindeer-equipped transportation companies, and two battalions equipped with US-supplied amphibious vehicles for river crossings. In addition, the Soviets massed thousands of mortars and artillery pieces, 750 aircraft, and 110 tanks (while the Germans lacked any armour), making Soviet forces far superior to the Germans.

Polar Storm™ is a game recreating the Kirkenes-Petsamo Campaign,1944.

Stalin's Lost Chance

On November 30, 1939 Stalin attacks Finland. While the majority of the battle is fought on the Carelian Istmus, this game explores the battles taking place on the northern shores of Ladoga.

North To Jerusalem (CoE-series):

North to Jerusalem

British Prime Minister, David Lloyd George told Allenby, "he wanted Jerusalem as a Christmas present for the British nation." Lloyd Gorge made clear that this victory was needed in order "to strengthen the staying power and morale of this country."

The decision to launch a major offensive in Palestine, in the autumn of 1917, was also based on "very sound strategic reasons." The Russian Empire collapsed in the spring due to the Russian Revolution, freeing many Ottoman Empire forces. Allenby's goal from the outset had been the annihilation of the Ottoman army in southern Palestine.

North To Jerusalem™ is a game recreating the South Palestinian Campaign from 30th October - 9th December,1917.
