In September 1944, American troops rolled up to the German border having driven the fleeing Wehrmacht across France and Belgium. With the German Army crumbling, it appeared that the war might soon be over. But with a line of well-built fortifications and rapidly-deployed if raw reinforcements, the Germans stabilized their positions and would extend the war for another nine months.
Just south of the city of Aachen and just north of what would become the Elsenborn Ridge battlefield, the U.S. VII Corps attacked the German fortified line. Tanks of the 3rd Armored "Spearhead" Division steadily fought their way forward, backed by the veteran foot soldiers of the 1st and 9th Infantry Divisions. But fierce counterattacks finally blunted the advance; a full-scale invasion of German territory would have to wait until spring.
North of Elsenborn is a supplement for the Panzer Grenadier series. There are ten scenarios, or separate game situations, based on the battles of September 1944 between VII Corps and the German Seventh Army.
North of Elsenborn is sold BOTH via .pdf download and as a printed booklet; you only need one. The scenario book comes as a .pdf file that you'll need to print (or read off the screen) in order to play the scenarios, or you can order it as a booklet.
This game is part of the Panzer Grenadier series
