DEVILS IN THE WOODS—THE BATTLE OF THE BULGE 1944 is a new scenario pack that tells the story of the Battle of the Bulge from the perspective of the dogfaces of the American 3rd Armored Division, facing down an onrushing German 116th Panzer Division during 20-24 December, 1944. The gamer is hurled into the height of the most dangerous period of the Battle of the Bulge, in pitched battles that play out over two historical maps, covering Melines and the Quatre Bras crossroads portions of the battlefield.

The entire battle-site was mapped on foot by designer Pedro Ramis and the detail is incredible! Scenarios bring you into the ranks of the 23rd Armored Engineer Battalion, Kampfgruppe Bayer, Task Force Mize, CCR, and other hard-fighting combat elements. You have never experienced The Battle of the Bulge like this before. And may never again!

Two new historical game maps on heavyweight stock;
12 scenarios printed on 6 separate heavyweight cards;
A variant rules page;
A nice cover sheet;
A snazzy Ziploc-style bag to keep it all in.
