The Battle of the Bulge Bulge Compilations The Ardennes Offensive

Fielding British Paras from The Battle of the Bulge

When the German Ardennes offensive began, the 6th Airborne Division was in England, resting and refitting after their success in Normandy. The elite division was at once ordered back to the front to defend the crossings of the River Meuse. By the time the 3rd and 5th Parachute Brigades were in position, the German advance had been stopped, and from New Year’s Day 1945, the paras joined the counteroffensive against the German 'bulge'.

The Battle of the Bulge lets you field a Parachute Company and an Airlanding Company from the 6th Airborne Division, and Mitchell Kemmis tells us about the design of these lists and the best ways to use them in your games.

Question of the Week

The Question Of The Week
The Question Of The Week offers Flames Of War players a chance to expand their knowledge and become better players. This week’s question, posed by our friend Jökull, concerns the Browning Automatic Rifle, a weapon with which he is very well acquainted!

Mentioned in Despatches
Team Yankee Mini Rulebook

Long-time Flames Of War players will be familiar with our soft-cover mini rulebooks: handy pocket-size (well, if your pockets are quite large) versions of the full rulebook which we distributed for free to existing players when we released a new edition of the rules.

Now that Team Yankee has been a huge success as a rule set, our World War III rulebook is getting the same treatment – we want to make it as easy as possible for new players to join the Cold War action.

Team Yankee Mini Rulebook
Team Yankee Mini Rulebook

The Team Yankee Mini Rulebook is a 90-page, full-colour soft-cover rulebook in an A5 (210mm x 148.5mm) format. It includes the full Team Yankee rules, only without the specific army statistics, which of course are available on your Force, Formation and Unit Cards.

The Mini Rulebook will be included as a free addition to the Charlie’s Chieftains British Army Deal – making that an ideal first army for any players who have been waiting to take the Cold War plunge.
