A Bloody Harvest ETO (id:#56230)
Avalon Hill (ASL Action Pack #1 ID:AP 8)
(Revision: MMP Website (Download))
Designer: Kevin Meyer
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
From the very beginning of the invasion, Polish defenses had proven to be woefully unprepared for the German onslaught. The blitzkrieg tactics employed by the German armored columns allowed great territorial gains in just a few short days. As the panzers raced across the Polish countryside conducting their breakthrough-and-pincer maneuvers, it ultimately fell upon the German infantry to mop up areas of bypassed Polish resistance. One such operation occurred in the farm community of Pabianice, just outside the city of Lodz. As the German Eighth Army advanced along the eastern and western flanks of Lodz, the grenadiers of Die Leibstandarte were sent into Pabianice to clear out its staunch garrison.

2017-09-05(A) Jeff B vs Pierce Mason German winAgainst some of the longest odds in my ASL career, my Germans pulled off a miraculous victory on the last turn. Needing to account for 6 Polish squads and both leaders, my Germans bravely charged the complex. Facing multiple 1:2 and 1:4 CCs, they tied up or eliminated all but one Polish squad going into the last half turn. Still facing overwhelming odds in two of the CCs, the Germans gambled and shot into the melees with mixed results, meanwhile breaking the lone Polish squad that was not in melee. Against unlikely odds again, the Germans hung in there for the victory. One of the most exciting ASL games I can remember playing.
2017-04-11(D) B-E Karlsson vs German Polish win
2016-11-21(A) Jeff B vs Ross Earnheart German winPoles set up a forward defense that slowed the Germans down somewhat, but once they got past there was no stopping them.
2016-11-19(D) Michael Dorosh vs Colin Emerson Polish winGerman has tough row to hoe as other players found out. Balance for Germans seems sensible (i.e. one more turn). Poles tough to dig out of stone buildings.
2016-11-19(A) Colin Emerson vs Michael Dorosh Polish winBest thing for the Polish player to do is not setup in the Grain, run back and hole up in the Stone buildings. Stay concealed in the +3 TEM and things get very tough on the Germans. Balance seems to indicate this. Germans were knocking on the door but could not get to last Polish squads. Played in 2 hours.
