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.

Italian Forces in the Defence of Sicily - 1943
Operation Husky, the invasion of Sicily by the Allied forces in 1943 was one of the major campaigns of World War 2. Now that all of the major Mid War books for Version 4 have been released and we are moving into the late war period later this year, it would seem appropriate to look at this campaign. Just as we are currently in between periods in Flames of War, so is the Invasion of Sicily an interlude between the war in the desert and the fighting in Europe proper.

Renault R35 – Infantry Support Tank

Renault R35 – Infantry Support Tank
 After the fall of France the Germans gave approximately 124 Renault R35 tanks to the Italians, to bolster their armoured forces as the Italians were lacking in modern tanks and armour in general after their losses in the desert. Check out this article for fielding your R35 tanks in Mid War.

Semovente 90/53 SP Battery
Given the success the German 88 anti-aircraft gun had against Allied armour in the desert, the Italians had a similar weapon, the 90 mm Cannone da 90/53 anti-aircraft gun, which they thought could be used to provide a very powerful mobile anti tank weapon. Check out this article for fielding your Semovenete 90/53 SP Batteries in Mid War.

Battle of Kiev 1943

Battle of Kiev 1943 – The Czechoslovak Assault
On the 3rd of November 1943 the attack on the German defensive line on the Dnepr river began, and with it the liberation of Western Ukraine. The 7th was the anniversary of the Bolshevik revolution and Stalin wanted the city of Kiev back in Soviet hands by that date, liberated from the German occupation which had reduced its pre-war population by 80% over two years thanks to the SS.

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.
