World War Two was just that: an entire world at war…

In a discussion on the Fireball Forward blog about the destination of the next 'scenario book' :North Africa or the Pacific it made me consider the question: where in the world makes the perfect "Gaming Battle Ground and why?"

Whether its bocage hopping in Normandy, Big Cats vs T-34s at Kursk, 14th in Burma, rats catching a fox at El Alamein, Jap attacks on Guadalcanal, Red Devils surrounded in Arnhem, Finns attacking the kitchens at Suomussalmi, Norwegian ski troops at Narvik, Commandos raiding at St Nazaire, Krauts vs Nuts in Bastogne…

Where in the world has your ultimate WW2 gaming experience been?

Ahem…despite the title of this topic it is not to be confused with a discussion about TMP…troll

Rattenkrieg…… close in and unpredictable

If you like infantry in close terrain: Normandy (U.S. front) or Stalingrad.

If you like lots of tanks: The North African desert, or Kursk, or Normandy (Commonwealth front).

I like the North African campaign and the first summer in Russia. Lots of armor and, in the latter case, a huge scope of variety.

Stalingrad with the ASL boardgame.

"Where in the world has your ultimate WW2 gaming experience been?"

Always had a soft spot for the Market Garden campaign, small enough that you can game the entire thing as well as smaller tactical actions, and as big a variety of forces as you could wish.

After that, Normandy.

Dynaman: are you talking about Stalingrad scenarios, or the huuuuge campaign games? I always wanted to play the Stalingrad campaign, but it would be more of a lifestyle choice than a game.
