WHERE'S MY KAMPFGRUPPE?
When Flames Of War games designer Mike Haught wrote the
Market Garden books he created a battlegroup that could cover as many
possible angles in one company diagram as possible, in this article Mike
gets more specific, highlighting various battlegroups which can be
fielded from the existing company diagrams.
A WALK IN THE PARK
Hunner Park lies just south of the strategically
situated town of Nijmegen. During the WWII Market Garden operation it
became a key battleground as the Allies pushed forward towards German.
This is a Flames Of War scenario.
BATTLEFIELDS OF THE NETHERLANDS
Far from being flat and featureless, the Dutch landscape
is crossed by canals, soggy polder and raised roads, while other areas
are built up into large cities.
Casey Davies shows us how to create one of the key features of the Dutch countryside - raised roads.
A VERY SMALL DISASTER
As the British found out in Zululand in 1879, it’s not a

on campaign as a casual observer. Wyvern Wargames Club take us through
their participation game based on Prince Napoleon’s ill-fated holiday in

historian Nigel Stillman takes a look at the idea that perhaps chariots
were the original tanks of their day.
