VIERSTRAAT RIDGE, BELGIUM, 2 SEPTEMBER
1918: The Hindenburg Line was originally
organized for defense toward the end of the year 1916, and work
was continuous in its preparation for a long time thereafter.
The Siegfried Line makes full use, along extended stretches, of
the front line of defense accorded by the Bellicourt-St. Quentin
Canal. The strength of these defenses, increased as it is by inundated
areas, provided extensivee mutual flanking fire support. Good
artillery observation rendered the line very strong. The Siegfried
Line is considered to create the most favorable conditions for
a stubborn defense by a minimum garrison. It is therefore adapated
to the requirements of obstinate close combat.
has created a lodgement, we'd call it a beachhead, but too early
in the history of warfare. We'd call it a bridgehead, but again,
too soon. So lodgement will have to do. But do it will as you
were promised a return in kind for YOUR support of the Great War
mission. Time to pay the piper, or release the homing pigeons
as it may be. We're proud to bring you the first GWATS Historical
Module, HINDENBURG LINE. It is no accident that the boys from
the 27th 'New York' Division are first up in what will be a growing
collection. And it is no accident that the publisher's propensity
for spending years haunting collection, archives, old dusty barns
(Copper Fox Farm George > thank you for all your postcards!)
-- collecting unique unit histories and After Action Reports of
the kind that are not avaiable on the internet.
Like all historical modules the aim is to
provide you a new, detailed battefield. Unlike efforts by others,
the aim to make a unique GWASL experience means no 'menus' and
all that, instead you get the men and weapons, the ground, and
they are set loose at their start lines to fight ... and fight
continuously with new men fed in ... and every yard fought over
bitterly until one side or the other ... or both ... are exhausted.
Ownership of GWATS 1 (Germans) and GWATS
3 (Americans) are required, as is your ATS Rulebook 2014. All
the other combat counters needed to play are provided. There are
exactly zero historical modules like it ... but the Yanks are
coming ... for YOU.
