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.

2018-05-31(D) Ruben Rigillo vs Francesco Berucci Polish win
2018-05-12(A) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best German winDan Best and I played this one to 6 full turns in just under 2 hours of play. My Germans had hot dice and managed to push through the cornfield and into the complex and captured four Polish squads at the end. One German 4-6-8 was KIA'd moving into the complex, but the rest of the German force took control of the complex for the win.
2018-05-10(A) Scott Sherer vs David Langley German winDefinitely pulled this out out by the skin of my teeth, getting the victory in the Polish CCPh of the final turn. Started off well enough for the Germans as they overran some of the trench outputs early on. However, the Poles weren't eliminated and the broken units routed through the sunflowers back to the victory area and eventually rallied. A single tough Polish squad in Q3 stood up to several high-FP German attacks and held up the right flank of the German for at least a couple of turns before finally succumbing in CC. At the start of the German Turn 6, things did not look good, but then a string of fortunate events turned the tide. The biggest was probably advancing a 248,9-2 into CC with a 457 out of desperation. The HS survived into melee, I shot into the hex in the Polish Turn 6 DFPh and broke the 457 and then eliminated him on a 1-2(-6) CC attack. This opened up the left flank and was able to get enough Germans into the walled compound to eliminate the rest of the Polish MMC via FTR or CC. An enjoyable scenario and a very good learning scenario as David is a newer player and this one allowed a good focus on infantry tactics and mechanics.
2018-04-21(D) Jonathan Kapleau vs Calcada, Luis German win
2017-12-06(A) Jeff B vs Roberto Alesse German winEvery single time I play this as the Germans it comes right down to the bitter end. The Polish MMG did its job breaking and suppressing the Germans, eliminating the 9-2 at one point with a fatal wound. Germans rushed through the fields and, once within normal range of the Poles, crawled through, slowly whittling away at the defenders. On the last Polish turn the Germans managed to break the one remaining squad standing in the village and one trying a desperate charge to get within the perimeter. Great game.
