IABSM Greece41 Glider Assault game

Post by mluther »

I ran my second IABSM game during the pandemic with players separated by around 500 miles. This game is from Chris Stoesen's Campaign for Greece 41 book and based on his Glider Assault scenario (#13) It revolves around an Aussie attempt to keep a road open through Fallschirmjager infested territory.
From the book: The Australian 2/6th came under assault from glider borne troops. It was the job of the 2/6th to keep the roads open for the retreating Dominion troops. The gliders landed close enough to the Australians that they watched them land. The landing was so rough, they at first believed that they had crashed until the Fallschirmjagers began to exit their gliders. The Aussie player had 2 platoons while the FJ player only had 5 sections. I was only using a 4 X 4 space for this small game. There was a road running diagonally across from the NE to SW mostly through the higher ground. 5 walled farms were connected to this road
I sent some pics of the board to the 2 players, Martin (in Florida) and William (a mere 13 miles from my table) along with briefings and units. They sent back some clear instructions on how they wanted to deploy and what they wanted their blinds to attempt. Their directions were sufficiently idiot proofed so that even I managed to send the blinds out in the correct order.

I had a few folks ask how they can get Chris' Campaign for Greece supplement for IABSM since it was no longer listed on the Lardies site. Well, it looks like it is now available through Chris' blog site
