Miniature rules for multi-day battles of WWII
50 pages – 3.13mb PDF Format – $24.99 – Sample Pages
Division Commander, by Bruce McFarlane, is an operational game where you take the role of a Divisional or Corps commander and game the battles of the Second World War at the scale you read about in history books.
Each day is played in an average of four game turns, allowing you to play out a full Second World War Battle in one sitting. One base of miniatures represents a whole battalion, and at scale of three inches to one mile, a ping-pong table represents an entire battlefield.
Divisions have to be assigned “orders” (without record-keeping or written orders) which affect the way the division fights. This encourages you to follow tactics consistent with the orders. Corps or Army level air cover, artillery support, and command are represented in a simple and effective way–so as to neither detract from or dominate the action. Do you want to play Patton or Sgt. Rock? Rommel or Sgt. Schultz? Division Commander is for generals!
Division Commander includes: A 21 page rule book with illustrations and examples; 11 pages of Division Cards; French, American, and three each (early/mid/late war) for Britain, Germany, and the USSR, listing all the units in the Division, as well as all their gaming statistics, in one easy format; two pages of quick reference sheets; all the markers necessary to play the game; the Arras 1940, Road to Moscow 1941, and El Alamein 1942 scenarios.
