Out of Cowardice ETO (id:#63509)

Prior Publication: Armies of Oblivion

Designer: Ken Dunn
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Immediately after Yugoslavian regent Prince Paul signed the Tripartite Pact to join with Germany and Italy, military leaders overthrew the regime, rescinding the agreement. Hitler then launched Operation Punishment as a lesson on the costs of defying Germany, and he urged other members of the Pact to join the attack. In Hungary, Admiral Horthy was “all fire and flames” to send his troops down the Danube in support of the Germans at the first opportunity. Prime Minister Count Pal Telecki objected, however, as he had signed a pact of “eternal peace and friendship” with Yugoslavia. Horthy toned down his rhetoric, but on April 11th, five Hungarian Brigades crossed the border. The Yugoslavian Army put up little resistance to the Hungarians. As Hungarian forces reached the small village of Senta on the third day of their advance, their motorized units began to run out of gas and were forced to obtain critical fuel at the indigenous equivalents of filling stations. Resistance coalesced briefly as civilians – hastily armed with little more than antiquated rifles – bitterly fought back. Count Telecki, his views more and more unpopular, shot himself rather than acquiesce in collaborating with the Germans. His final message to Admiral Horthy read “out of cowardice, we have allied ourselves with scoundrels”.

2019-01-04(A) Jeff B vs Ryan Ellett Yugoslavian winThis one is quite tough for the Hungarians. I had initially planned to attack across the hill, but my opponent heavily defended this area so I opted to push ahead through the narrow road approach. I immediately lost an AC, which ran out of gas before getting very far. The rest of my vehicles were used as VBM scouts, and it soon became more and more clear I would need to grab all the buildings due to a lack of partisans. Without much numerical superiority, the brutal terrain, and the eventual loss of vehicles, my force was stretched quite thin. Still it came down to the final turn CCs. When my opponent was able to withdraw a squad due to my "12" he was in position to run this unit to recapture a building as long as he survived a 2+1 shot (which he did). Even without this I would've had to win an existing melee by rolling a "7" to wrest the last building from him. For shits and giggles I conducted the last CC and the melee still would've been in force. Two games in 2019 so far and both were down to the wire, but I was much less impressed with this one then J23.
