A Bloody Harvest ETO (id:#56230)
Avalon Hill (ASL Action Pack # 1 ID:AP 8)
(Revision: MMP Website (Download))
Designer: Kevin Meyer
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
From the very beginning of the invasion, Polish defenses had proven to be woefully unprepared for the German onslaught. The blitzkrieg tactics employed by the German armored columns allowed great territorial gains in just a few short days. As the panzers raced across the Polish countryside conducting their breakthrough-and-pincer maneuvers, it ultimately fell upon the German infantry to mop up areas of bypassed Polish resistance. One such operation occurred in the farm community of Pabianice, just outside the city of Lodz. As the German Eighth Army advanced along the eastern and western flanks of Lodz, the grenadiers of Die Leibstandarte were sent into Pabianice to clear out its staunch garrison.

2017-12-06(A) Jeff B vs Roberto Alesse German winEvery single time I play this as the Germans it comes right down to the bitter end. The Polish MMG did its job breaking and suppressing the Germans, eliminating the 9-2 at one point with a fatal wound. Germans rushed through the fields and, once within normal range of the Poles, crawled through, slowly whittling away at the defenders. On the last Polish turn the Germans managed to break the one remaining squad standing in the village and one trying a desperate charge to get within the perimeter. Great game.
2017-11-25(D) Jeff B vs Shane Woyak Polish winThings did not bode well for the Germans early when they lost two squads and the 8-1 to a random selection KIA shot. The 1st level MMG would continue to suppress them (or worse) throughout the remainder of the game. Poles played a relatively strong up front defense, keeping concealment as long as possible. Once they lost it they kept at arm's reach from the Germans and slowly whittled them away while making a successful fighting withdrawal. By the end of the day the Germans didn't have much left. Did I mention my dice were quite hot and his were quite cold? That always helps. My first FTF game in probably 20 years! Great to have Shane over and look forward to more.
2017-09-05(A) Jeff B vs Pierce Mason German winAgainst some of the longest odds in my ASL career, my Germans pulled off a miraculous victory on the last turn. Needing to account for 6 Polish squads and both leaders, my Germans bravely charged the complex. Facing multiple 1:2 and 1:4 CCs, they tied up or eliminated all but one Polish squad going into the last half turn. Still facing overwhelming odds in two of the CCs, the Germans gambled and shot into the melees with mixed results, meanwhile breaking the lone Polish squad that was not in melee. Against unlikely odds again, the Germans hung in there for the victory. One of the most exciting ASL games I can remember playing.
2017-04-11(D) B-E Karlsson vs German Polish win
2016-12-28(A) Christian Knudsen vs Neil Andrews Polish winThis time I didn't get as lucky as usual, and Neil played some neat tricks with Wall Advantage and keeping concealed guys up top to deny my guys concealment growth. My attack was disjointed, and Neil won this one easily.
