Battleground Europe was the first in the Warlord range of Bolt Action Theatre Books, each of which focus on a specific theatre of operations, providing detailed history, scenarios, army lists and rules for specific historical units and characters, so gamers can immerse themselves far more deeply in the detail of the campaign.
From D-Day to Germany!
This supplement deals with the final phase of World War II in Western Europe. It covers the build-up to the Invasion of Normandy, the fight through bocage country, the snowy forests of the Ardennes, and follows the combatants through to the crumbling of the Third Reich and German surrender.
This theatre book is a supplement to the tabletop wargame Bolt Action and its goal is to describe the context for games set within this phase of the war. What was it like to storm the beaches of Normandy? How formidable was the bocage country? What was it like to fight in the snowy forests of the Ardennes?
You will find several scenarios within the book some depicting actual historical battles while others offer a view on typical operations with the aim to give a sense of what the fighting was like. Additional units have also been included in the book, giving you something new to stretch your opponents with!
