The Gateway ETO (id:#61623)
(Dispatches from the Bunker #35 ID:DB100)
Designer: Stephen Johns
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
As part of Operation Nordwind, Hitler wanted to send his panzers south out of the Hagenau woods, the gateway to the Alsatian plain. For most of January 8th, the 21st Panzer and 25th Panzergrenadier Divisions fought their way through the old Maginot Line defenses. On January 9th they came to the twin towns of Hatten-Rittershoffen. Here there would be a week of ferocious back and forth fighting which one panzer commander called "one of the hardest and most costly battles that had ever raged on the Western Front".
Attacker: German (Elements of Panzergrenadier Regiment 35 and II./119 Panzergrenadier Division 25 and Panzer Flamm Company 352 (Kampfgruppe Proll))

Last Played:
2014-02-28(A) Andy Beaton vs Ardneh American winVery close game, came down to an upstairs broken green half squad I couldn't kill with a 30 flat flamethrower shot. Good fun.
2013-09-16(A) Kirby Vincent vs American American win
2013-07-27(A) Robert Zinselmeyer vs Matt Walker German winSt. Louis ASL Tournament
2013-01-06(D) Kevin Killeen vs Pablo Silva Garcia German winSeemed like it can go either way. German has some nice toys to play with.
2012-11-09(A) Michael Rodgers vs Bruno L'Archeveque American winThe American must put a lot of thought into his defence. Six morale troops are tough to move around and keep in good order. In our game, I lost three tanks early, including the Flame Hetzer.
