    OOSTERBEEK PERIMETER is a ground-breaking product that allows you to recreate the classic struggle of the Battle of Arnhem on a never-simulated-at-this-scale rendition of the battlefield. And to do it in the ultimate detail, house-by-house, at 50 yards scale. This game does not purport to answer whether Monty’s bold gamble to cross the Rhine and break into the heart of Hitler’s Third Reich could have succeeded. Nor does it have anything to do with whether ‘Market Garden’ aimed one or more bridges ‘too far’. Instead, OOSTERBEEK PERIMETER puts the gamer literally inside the hexenkessel, hammered by two Waffen SS panzer divisions day after day. There is no escape nor respite and this game is not suggested for the faint of heart. If you are ready to travel back in time, to recreations of the very places in history where most of the Arnhem Victoria Crosses were earned in pitched combat, while staring down the dark menace of massive King Tigers, Sturmgeschutz, and a smorgasbord of captured AFVs ranging from Dutch armored cars to French flame-throwing tanks—then this game is for you.


    NEW weapons make their debut in ATS scenarios, including the Panzerkampfwagen VIb ‘King Tiger’, Polsten AA gun and potent 17 pounder. Battlefields are what historical ATS gaming is all about and OOSTERBEEK PERIMETER continues that tradition in grand style. The game maps were created on-site by designer Kurt Martin with assistance from CH researchers and Dutchmen Jack Westman and Hans Korting, the team spending over a year mapping every land-form and terrain-form. The resulting 36” x 48” playing area breaks new ground in the tactical-level game genre and is detailed and extensive.


    Ownership of the ATS Rulebook 2014 and small and large system markers is required to use this product. ALL COMBAT COUNTERS NEEDED TO PLAY ARE PROVIDED.
