Just finished Douglas Fermerís  France at Bay 1870-1871. This was a particularly good read and as a by-product it is possible to see how the First World War developed out of this conflict. I would recommend his two volume history of the FPW (volume 1 is Sedan) as the best since Michael Howardís.

Beevor's Ardennes book is fascinating, and throws up some "anomalies" from normal received wisdom / what is normally provided for within rules

For example:
  • raw Fallschirmjaeger - firstly attacking in a horde and getting badly shot up, then running away and having to be stopped and put back into the line by (an experienced) Volksgrenadier formation
  • a Staghound running round a Tiger faster than the latter could traverse its turret, and knocking it out with shots to the rear engine compartment
  • Panthers charging at top speed to stop bazooka teams getting a shot off at them
  • units being exposed, rather than camouflaged by, snowfall in certain circumstances
  • "first shot wins" in an armoured battle at night as the first tank to brew up silhouettes its comrades, which then get knocked out very rapidly afterwards

I feel sure Big Mike has factored all of the above into some cunning rules for the Ardennes Day...

Stewart i will always try and fit you in, as you organise the weekender for us all. Itís only right I should try and include you as you are a big part of RFCM rules and Games. I think also the CWB normally attracts a more ď localĒ group so another reason to include you, and Nigel as well when possible.
