GenCon Battle Report: Bitter Cold Bastogne
Bitter Cold Bastogne: WWII Ice Wars was an ambitious undertaking and involved more than a dozen players, 100 tanks and hundreds of infantry figures. The massive battle was spread out on a large tabletop 3-D terrain mat, including rivers, bridges, hills and forests. The players were divided into three forces, with the 101st Airborne defending Bastogne on the east flank and elements of Patton’s 3rd Army attacking from the west. A large group of German tanks were caught in the middle, with orders to seize the bridges leading to Bastogne.
