When it comes to the Battle of the Bulge, much is made of the defence of Bastogne. However, US troops were preforming valiantly before then, defending the front line outposts along the Skyline Drive in Luxembourg in a heroic attempt to blunt the German spearheads in the very first days of the battle.
Where some Divisions fell apart under pressure, the 28th ‘Keystone’ Division, nicknamed Bloody Bucket by their German opponent, stood and fought in a succession of last ditch stands which delayed Panzer Lehr reaching Bastogne by three critical days.
This Pint Sized campaign focusses on the 1110th Infantry Regiment’s defence of the Skyline Drive and the roads to the Clerf River, specifically around Constum, Holzthum. Thirty-two pages in length, the supplement provides a full historical background, detailing the forces involved on both sides and using historical 1944 maps to show the area where the action occurred, the organisation and structure of the units involved and then an account of the historical action. Then a campaign is presented which will provide anywhere between six and a dozen or so games as it covers the action on the 16th and 17th of December 1944. A full range of victory conditions are included so you can fight your way to victory or defeat.
As always, this Pint Sized Campaign is available for the price of a Pint in our Lard Island local, just £3.80. You can find it here: Bloody Bucket
