Hurtgen: Hell’s Forest is a grand-tactical simulation of that enormous campaign. The 2,240 counters represent every formation, at company and battalion levels, which fought in the battle, including US, German, British and Belgian units. Infantry, armor, anti-tank, reconnaissance, engineer, assault gun, howitzer, rocket, parachute, ranger, glider and headquarters units are all fully represented. The two maps are an accurate representation of the area and were compiled from
1944 German staff maps and 1943-44 US Army maps. The area portrayed shows all roads, trails and other types of terrain in relation to their suitability for armor and infantry, along with all the villages, towns and cities that were the bastions of the German defense, as well as every creek and river that couldn’t be crossed by wheeled vehicles without a bridge. There are three scenarios representing each of the offensive periods of September, October and November. A smaller learning scenario depicts the US 28th Infantry Division’s ordeal as it attempted to drive on the Roer River dams. You may also play continuously from September to the first week of December.The challenge for the Allied player is to see if he can reach the Rhine ahead of the historic date. Extensive supply, weather and air power rules are included. This latest edition of the Grand Operational Simulation Series presents refi nements to the combat, artillery and supply systems in order to better depict tactical and operational warfare. For example, rules for “lulls” have been added to allow players to speed play during periods of inactivity. Those lulls compress play from three turns per day to one, allowing players to cover longer intervals of historic time. Other additions feature level-two entrenchments that create bastions in towns and cities that can better withstand barrages and ground assaults, along with rules representing the logistical nightmare faced by the Americans.The orders of battle have been researched in order to provide an accurate depiction of the armies of both sides. The ad hoc nature of the German army is shown via the various rear area and replacement battalions that appear.
