Описание «A Cold and Resolute Fight: The Battle for Narvik, April-June, 1940»
The German invasion of Demark and Norway, Operation Weserűbung, was a bold gamble by the invaders. The greatest risk for the Germans was at the northern most all weather port of Narvik. Here the Germans landed troops that quickly overwhelmed the local Norwegian garrison but left them entirely dependent upon supplies and reinforcements that would arrive by ship or air transport. The Allies recognized the German’s vulnerability and sent the Royal Navy into the Narvik fjord where their warships quickly sank all of the German vessels. With winter weather persisting, air transport would never be able to provide sufficient levels of men and material to sustain the now trapped German invaders. The Allies sent a mixed nationality force of British, French and Poles to support the Norwegian defense forces that were laying siege to the Germans. What resulted was an epic contest that threatened to unravel the Nazi blitzkrieg. Perhaps you can do as well or better?
Each copy of A Cold and Resolute Fight is composed of the following:
• Two 11 by 17 inch map sheets
• One sheet of 120 double-sided counters
• This set of rules.
Players will also need a standard deck of cards, one six-sided die (D6) and an opaque container (mug, envelope or anything similar) to play the game.
Most units are battalions of 700 to 800 men and their equipment (German KG are slightly smaller). Tank units represent 6-10 vehicles. A turn represents one week of time and a hex is slightly more than 2.5 miles across.
A Cold and Resolute Fight is designed by Paul Rohrbaugh and features graphics by Nils Johansson.
