Hurtgen Forest battles: maps & scenarios

Recommended Posts

Almost finished Charles Whiting's 'The Battle of Hurtgen Forest' (London, Pan Books, 1989/2003) and inspired to hunt down:

1. existing scenarios for the many parts of the battle.

2. topographical maps of the area with a view to be producing some CM-ETO battles.

Can any old hands help me with suggestions?

Best I can do is recommend another book:

U.S Army in World War II

Special Studies

Three Battles: Arnaville, Altuzzo, and Schmidt

By MacDonald and Mathews

The relevant bit would be the battle for Schimdt. The volume describes several company/battalion sized actions that would make for interesting scenarios. The maps leave something to be desired (simple topos) but there are photos to go by as well.

Hope that helps.
