    I can't help but think how many of the volkssturm were WW1 veterans who in 1918 thought "I am sure glad I won't ever have to go through that again"

    The screenshot that I would love to see is that showing the progress bar for the upload of the Fire & Rubble installers onto the Amazon servers

    Early stage of some testing. Young grenadiers of ID "Scharnhorst" fighting in the outskirts of Beelitz, facing heavy Soviet Tanks for the first time.

    Some new impressions of map work in progress. Southwest of Frankfurt/Oder, the defenders of the so called fortress broke out on 23rd April 1945 along the "Reichs-Autobahn 12" Frankfurt - Berlin.

    Interesting source Aragorn 👍 Ideal conditions for a campaign ! Huge variety of forces, including everything except SS-formations. I am working on two F&R campaigns at the moment, what means a ton of work, but in my head the idea is slowly growing, to generate a whole CM F&R Campaign/Battle Pack...and East Prussia had definitely to take place in such a project 👍

    It's been more than a couple of years and Lille is dead on, the waiting has been and still is brutal.

    Each to his own of course, but I don't entirely understand people's fascination with the Volkssturm. 🙂 Badly armed, badly trained, often badly led, they fought with great courage, but for me not very appealing, although perhaps somewhat useful for flank protection and such.
    For me FR is all about Volksgrenadiere, Fallschirmjäger and Waffen SS.

    In anticipation of Fire and Rubble and the battle for Eastern Prussia here's a link to an article about the fierce fighting in the autumn of 1944.
    Food for scenario and campaign makers!

    The problem the Soviets had with that large of a force on such a small area is that they basically became a "target rich environment". The Germans couldn't help but hit anything Soviet if they just aimed in that direction. The Soviet losses were huge as they were ordered to take Berlin by May 1 (Mayday).
    The battles and scenarios hopefully will reflect that.

    Progress of map making is going on. So, I hope to be able to start the playtesting with both of my Campaign projects within the next weeks. This Campaign will finally include 16 single battles from 23rd April 1945 in the area of Frankfurt/Oder to 7th May 1945 at the Elbe-River.

    Sounds like a typical Soviet doctrine at operational level, achieve breakthrough simultaneously at two to three different points.

    Just to clarfy, Athens was quite antidemocratic, Spartans were a bunch of bastards, Rome was the evil empire (sorry but the 666 is a cavalistic reference to Neron) and Darth Vader, even if he has cookies, space destroyers and tie fighters, is a criminal under any standar you might apply (maybe not long time ago and on a galaxy far, far away...but luckily i'm judgin it from here and now)...nevertheless I've got a problem evaluating Napoleon...I guess I should ask a british...vae victis.
     
    Dear Mr @Battlefront.com, I assure you I do not usually waste my time on things like this...but this is all your fault... you see, I was almost posting about  the history of my family on both sides of the SCW to counter the "you more" nonsense and "bad guys" illiteraty...incredible, reading the chat when I do have on my desk the 2nd vol. of "the Oder front 1945" and "the Berlin Operation 1945"...I guess I'm completly lost...save me please...you are the only one that can do it...
    RELEASE IT NOW... PLEASEEEEEE

    That. My sentiments exactly. Historical realism is much more important than balance.
