Market Garden Collection - Arnhem Part 2
13,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

With 2 Para isolated at the Arnhem Bridge and both 1 and 4 Para Brigades thwarted in their attempts to fight their way into Arnhem and falling back, what became the Oosterbeek Perimeter started to form around Divisional HQ at the Hartenstein Hotel. Beaten but not defeated, the remnants of 1st Airborne Division fought a grim battle with the SS supported by reinforcements and armour rushed to Oosterbeek from all over the West. Veterans and experienced battlefield guides vividly relate their experiences and take the viewer to the scene of the action. The seven days of grim and bloody fighting in the Oosterbeek Perimeter was amongst the hardest fought of all the battles in the West. It was one that the SS veterans of the Eastern Front in the Hohenstaufen Division christened the Hexenkessel or Witches Cauldron . All the while the the airborne soldiers were waiting for XXX Corps to arrive from the south, with the enemy pressing ever closer. Harrowing tales of determined flying by the RAF and the award of the Victoria Cross to Flight Lieutenant Lord are told by men who fought at the limits of human endurance, making this a startlingly vivid production, with many stories that the veterans have self censored over the years adding to the mix.

Post Scriptum Steam Gift EUROPE
30,68 € *

Post Scriptum is a WW2 simulation game, focusing on historical accuracy, large scale battle, difficult learning curve and an intense need for cohesion, communication and teamwork. Players will relive the events of ‘Operation Market Garden’ across the fields and towns of Holland. This massive Allied assault consisted of a coordination of the British and American Airborne to capture key bridges while the British XXXth Corps moved to reinforce them through Highway 69. However, consecutive delays in consolidating ground from the north of Belgium through Nijmegen forced the 1st British Airborne Division in Arnhem to make a stand much longer than anticipated. With no successful link between the XXXth Corps and the Airborne in sight, the seventh and final bridge in Arnhem was considered lost.‘The Bloody Seventh’ is our name for the initial focus of the project as we feel it succinctly details the struggle that the British paratroopers had to endure while waiting for their army counterpart to establish a link through the lower Rhine.Players will be given the option to fight with the British Airborne Division, British XXX Corps or several branches of the German Army, such as the Wehrmacht or the Waffen SS. It’s a rare opportunity to experience the intense battlefield that was the Battle of Arnhem, which stretched across farms, woods, villages and city areas. Each area is being accurately recreated from archival references that range from street level to aerial images. Whether you’re jumping out of a plane, resupplying friendlies or operating a tank you will find multiple reasons to drop back into the battlefield in this grand scaled representation of a WW2 setting never explored in a large multiplayer environment.

'Urban terrain will likely be the predominant battlefield of future wars.' As September 11 and Somalia proved, hostile forces are now engaging America differently, avoiding open combat with our enormous military, striking at our civic centers or dragging us into theirs. But urban warfare isn't new; it is as old as the battle of Jericho. Now an incomparable collection written by esteemed military veterans-some currently serving, others civilian analysts-re-creates the last century's most astonishing examples of this kind of fighting . . . and offers important lessons for our future. Here are fourteen riveting histories that are both invaluable teaching tools for security leaders and engrossing accounts for any reader. They include • William M. Waddell's 'Tai-Erh-Chuang, 1938: The Japanese Juggernaut Smashed'-How China defeated the Japanese in battle for the first time in three hundred and forty years, by using a city only as a pivot area and attacking the exposed flank and rear ranks of its unprepared enemy. • Eric M. Walters's 'Stalingrad, 1942: With Will, a Weapon, and a Watch'-The largest and longest-running urban fight of the twentieth century, in which the Red Army became the tortoise to the Germans' hare, out-lasting its stronger foe. • Norm Cooling's 'Hue City, 1968: Winning a Battle While Losing a War'-The six-day fight for the cultural center of Vietnam revealed how the American military's distrust of the media made it fail to expose the enemy's mass executions and lose the all-important information war. And these eleven additional accounts: 'Warsaw, 1944: Uprising in Eastern Europe' by Maj. David M. Toczek 'Arnhem, 1944: Airborne Warfare in the City' by Lt. Col. G. A. Lofaro 'Troyes, France, 1944: All Guns Blazing' By Col. Peter R. Mansoor 'Budapest, 1944-45: Bloody Contest of Wills' by Col. Peter B. Zwack 'Aschaffenburg, 1945: Cassino on the Main River' by Mark J. Reardon 'Manila, 1945: City Fight in the Pacific' by Col. Kevin C. M. Benson 'Berlin, 1945: Backs Against the Wall' by Maj. Mike Boden 'Jaffa, 1948: Urban Combat in the Israeli War of Independence' by Benjamin Runkle 'Seoul, 1950: City Fight after Inchon' by Maj. Thomas A. Kelley 'Da Nang-Hoi An, A Tank Skirmish in Quang Nam Province' by Dennis C. Fresch 'Evolution of Urban Combat Doctrine' by Mark J. Reardon From the 1944 Warsaw uprising that almost caused the complete destruction of Poland's capital to the crucial, near-forgotten fight for Manila in 1945 . . . from snipers and shoulder-launched missiles to tunnels and tanks . . . all aspects of the most important urban conflicts are revealed in stunning detail. Compelling and cautionary, City Fights powerfully reminds us that, in our ever more urbanized and vulnerable world, 'if a state loses its cities, it loses the war.'
