Count Down To Late War

Count Down To Late War
In anticipation for the launch of Late-War, we will be counting down the days until June 6. Every day for fifty days, we will be sharing content on our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages as the 75th Anniversary of D-Day draws ever closer.

Each week, on each social media stream, we will be giving away a copy of the upcoming D-Day: American book, so you can start your Late-War journey with a bang with Fortress Europe, and then be ready for the US releases with D-Day: American.

To win all you need to do is follow our page on the social media streams of your choice, like the post, and then leave a comment to be in the draw at the end of the week- that’s one entry a day on each social media platform for a total of 21 entries a week if you want to maximise your chances of getting your hands on this book before anyone else.

Battle of Kiev 1943

Battle of Kiev 1943 – Panzer Counterattack
In the week after Kiev was captured Rybalko’s 3rd Guards Tank Army pushed the Germans back west some 60km as they scrambled to avoid encirclement of Army Group South and halt the penetration at operational depth. 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler (LAH) had recently returned from rear service and recuperation in Italy and it was with them and the 1st Panzer Division that Manstein would stymie the Soviet onslaught.

Firestorm Kursk: Operation Zitadelle
After their successful Firestorm Stalingrad Campaign, it was natural that the Legions Games group in Pittsburgh, PA, USA, would jump right on a Firestorm Kursk campaign.  As soon as its availability was announced, we requested a copy (or 2) and when it arrived before Friday, April 26, the offensive began. Check out in this article how their own Firestorm Kursk played out.

Force Diagrams
Force composition in V4 Mid War allows for a huge variety of armies to built, mixing and matching all sorts of support options to represent forces from many different theatres and battles, as outlined in Phil’s Companies Accompanied. 

To help illustrate these changes, and to make building your forces simple and straightforward, we will be sharing with you a series of Force Diagrams showing all the different options you have available to you. As Mid War develops and evolves, we will expand on these diagrams, adding new formations and support options for Fallschirmjagers, Paratroopers, Online Briefings, and Minor Axis.
