Also, here are update files that show changes to the units and maps , from Designer Mark Simonitch. Description December 16, After a period of fog, rain, and snow blankets the area, three German armies unleash 26 divisions against thinly held American lines in the Ardennes forest of Belgium and Luxembourg.
The result is Ardennes '44 , a game that both the "Bulge enthusiast" and the casual player will enjoy. German attacks follow historical advance routes, and the Bastogne and St. Vith defense perimeters are often as large as they were historically instead of one big stack of units in the town itself. The Allied player has a chance at holding Elsenborn Ridge and making the Germans pay dearly for the twin villages of Rockerath and Krinkelt. Likewise, the German player has an equal chance of changing history and reaching the Meuse River.

Only registered customers can rate. The best bulge game I've tried. Was this comment helpful? Great system and playable like new thicker counters. I wanted to love this game, but after setting it up the American counters just blended into the map for me. A very good game, but somewhat hard for me to see. It is my opnion that Ardennes '44 is the best game and sumulation on the subject.

The game system is not too complex nor too simple. The day after Christmas , a week into the Battle of the Ardennes but a month before the final German defeat, General Guderian tried to explain the calculus to Hitler.
As he argued, American resistance meant that the gamble in the west had already failed. As many forces as possible, he argued, should be returned to the eastern front to guard the Vistula. But at this decisive moment, it was the sacrifices of the Americans that prepared the way for a rapid Soviet advance — and thus, perhaps, for an extended Soviet empire. If the Panzer armies had remained on the Vistula, the Americans rather than the Soviets might have liberated Berlin and Vienna. Though Beevor sketches these political implications, he has written a military history. History, and especially the martial kind, has the feature that events are portrayed much more clearly in retrospect than they can possibly have been seen at the time.

The trap for the military historian, then, is to shine too bright a light through the fog of war. Beevor has the art of preserving the individual perspective on the battlefield while placing it among the perspectives of platoon, regiment, division, commanders, politicians and civilians. The pointillist whole that emerges is convincing as a portrait of war and startling in its detail. Beevor cares about the soldiers and the readers and the truth, an old-fashioned set of concerns that is balanced with modern literary skill.
This book clarifies, without simplifying, the human experiences and political stakes of the battle for the Ardennes Forest in December and January , bringing realism to the battlefield and coherence to the larger history of the war.
