Panzer Leader lets you re-create all of the fast, furious action of tactical armored combat on the western front during World War II. Rules of play consider aspects of tactical armored warfare such as gun ranges, target elevation, indirect artillery fire, fortifications, roadblocks, minefields, close air support, naval support fire, engineer demolition, and opportunity fire."
A West Front exploitation of the PANZERBLITZ system did very well in terms of both sales and gamer appreciation. It was far from perfect though and regrettably changed the scale of the original game so that the pieces did not really interchange smoothly. The revision was limited to the scenario cards of the first edition. Another member of the 100,000 sales club.
For those of you who are looking to recreate D-day with all the bells and whistles I have designed this counter sheet and explanation page for Allied Landing Craft used during the war. Feel free to print them as you see fit.

This is blank Panzerblitz, Panzer Leader map made with Inkscape. Inkscape is a free vector drawing tool and may be downloaded from https://inkscape.org, I've included notes on the map file which may be useful.
Updated Situation 20 - replacing the german quad-AA with Engineers.
Added Wreck markers and more OP Fire and Spotted markers...
20 base Situations from Panzer Leader redesigned in IMSTRAT-style graphics (kudos to Ward McBurney for his graphics and site!) + 3 countersheets containing only counters required by the 20 base Situations (in case you do not yet wish to print all those pages from IMSTRAT).
11/2013 - This is an extension of the systems originally created by Tom Oleson and Robert Chiang for DYO scenario generation for PB and PL. It allows for greater variety in unit types and addresses shortcomings in Mr. Chiang's system for PL.
Charts are included covering BPV ratings for the original units in each game as well as all additional and updated units on the Imaginative Strategist and Gregpanzerblitz sites.
EDIT: This file is updated with additional units from Gregpanzerblitz.com, as of 11/2013, as well as corrections to two existing Italian counters (which I previously posted on Consimworld). It also organizes all of the counters for each nation in a single Excel spreadsheet. The updated and new counters are highlighted for ease of spotting the differences from the...
Carl Fung created a synopsis of the changes to PL that would be needed after looking at the design notes in AIW. He created a text file of the Movement/WEC and other rules changes to play the game in a balance that was not evaluated in PB-PL due to printing schedules and shortcuts that left the game "un-realistic". Here is an updated WEC that was "prettied up" with minor changes in formatting. PDF contains his WEC and movement chart on one sheet, his original text of changes (less the movement chart and WEC) and I included a chart to help calculate the new WEC fractions for individual Indirect Firing Units.
