What battles were left out?

It seems that either no one knows or no one cares. The Final Blitz module doesn't seem very popular among the clientele here.

Perhaps some people are confuddled by your list. "Veritable" is very much "in" rather than "out". As are, "Varsity", "Remagen" and "Cologne", unless my 400 year old noddle is playing tricks on me.

Its a strange list.  Some of the battles listed are explicitly included, some listed are really parts of larger battles/operations, some are dead links in wiki, and at least 1 or 2 are air battles.  Not a great deal of due diligence might be why no one cares.

 

edit:  Several of them don't really translate to a good CM battle.  There were Allies meeting a little resistance and then pulling back and shelling a town into rubble.  A few are really operations that were more about organizational changes to support other units.

Not a strange list you must hate history. No dead links only wiki doesn't have a page for it because lack of info. They all translate to good battles. If you paid attention Paderborn is one of many on the list that can be made

So where did the list come from then?  There is at least one air battle.  How does CM model that?  And at two of the operations were a large scale across large fronts with separate battles from those operations on the list also.  One of the operations you listed was a broad reorganization of recon units and wasn't a even a battle by itself.

I'm still not sure why you would link to empty wiki pages to make your case.  Couldn't you have linked to something that laid it out?

I like it so much that I'm playing the same battle (Pershing versus Tiger) as a PBEM against a second opponent (it's okay he knows and he suggested it).  But of course that's a fictional battle, perhaps more balanced than some of the historical ones.  And that might be my only reservation about Final Blitzkrieg, a lot of what it does (and could) cover is not likely to be well-balanced as the Germans were in a bad way by then.

As for the list, it is perhaps the result of a search on Wiki?  I don't really have any issues with that, and there are some 'new' things there that could be done in CM.
