Fortress Europe: Late-war Forces

Fortress Europe Spotlights
Fortress Europe is the first step on the journey from the battlefields of Normandy to the ragnarok of Berlin. It is the first Late War book written specifically for the latest version of Flames Of War. It is a great sampler for a beginner just starting out as it covers the big four of Late War: Americans, Germans. British, and Soviets. Today we have the spotlights up for each of the Nations covered in Fortress Europe. Check them all out in the links below.

Fortress Europe Spotlight

Hit The Beach (FWBX09) Hit The Beach (FWBX09)
With a thunderous crash another shell smashes into the wall above you, showering your trench with rubble. Looking around, your entire position resembles a cauldron of fire—every roof ablaze, black smoke billowing into the night sky. As the echo of the blast dies away, the crack of rifle fire breaks out, and an ominous clanking and rumbling… Suddenly, out of the flames roars a Tiger tank! Leaping from your trench you run forwards. ‘Bazooka! Bazooka, now!’ Even as the din swallows your shouting, you see a trooper levelling his rocket launcher at the great beast’s tracks. It may not be enough. You are in command. Take control. What are your orders?

British Armoured Battlegroup (BRAB12)

British Armoured Battlegroup (BRAB12)
From across the world, you have come to fight for King and Country. Your bravery will echo across the ages as did that of your ancestors at Agincourt and Waterloo. The weapons may be different but, by jove, the determination and bravery of this generation will prove the equal of any other in the history of the Empire. Rule Britannia!

German Panzer Kampfgruppe (GEAB18)
Like a phoenix ascendant, Germany has risen once again from the false defeat contrived by our traitorous leaders in the First World War. The Treaty of Versailles was foisted upon an undefeated army and a nation willing to do anything to achieve victory. We must all be willing to do anything, anything to have the Fatherland rule the world!

American Combat Command (USAB10)

American Combat Command (USAB10)
The US Army fights as a combined arms force of tanks, infantry and artillery— an’ I do mean combined. Every infantry division has a battalion of tanks attached, We’ve got artillery, an’ lots of it, at every level. It’s kept well supplied so it can fire day and night. It’s said the US artillery fires more rounds in a day’n most German units can fire in a whole campaign. We’ve also got plenty of radios, at all levels of command, meanin’ we’ve got a versatility on the battlefield that the Germans can’t hope to match, an’ our allies can only dream of.

Soviet Tank Shock Group (SUAB11)
Comrade soldiers! Today we fight for the very survival of International Communism and for the soul of the Motherland. The long struggle for the freedom of the workers and peasants continues as the RKKA, our glorious Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army, smashes the fascist hordes, annihilating them where they stand and pursuing them to the viper’s nest from whence they came!

21st Army Tank Brigade in Italy

21st Army Tank Brigade in Italy
So with the release of Fortress Europe and its masses of formations from four factions, there were quite a few things that caught my eye- but the one that really captured my attention was the Italy Churchill Tank Squadron. I seem to really gravitate towards this theatre of battle and I really like the look of the Churchill, especially the new plastics, which really are fantastic. The formation is very versatile it allows you to take not only the heavy behemoths of the British list, but you can also take the flexible Shermans and a troop of one of my other favourite tanks, the M5 Stuart.
