HPS Simulations and John Tiller are proud to announce the release of

A New Kind of Warfare--A New John Tiller Series

 

 
The Wargamer is pleased to recognize John Tiller and HPS with our Award for Excellence.  

World War II: The First Blitzkrieg is elegantly designed with important factors handled simply yet accurately. Including several campaigns that haven’t been well-covered in other wargames, and boasting an AI is good enough to make simulations meaningful, World War II: The First Blitzkrieg is an excellent title for the World War II grognard.

"Lightning War"

In September 1939 a new form of warfare erupted in Europe, one that would forever transform how wars were fought. As German panzers rolled across Poland, a new word was spoken to describe combined armor and air operations: Blitzkrieg.

 

 Following the conquest of Poland, Germany would then turn its attention to Scandinavia and then to France and the Low Countries in the first few years of what would become the Second World War. Can you command the German panzers with the same skill as Guderian and Rommel, or as the Allies, can you stop the Wehrmacht where the historical commanders failed?

 

 

The First Blitzkrieg is the start of what will be a series of games called Total War in Europe. Unit scale ranges from divisions to battalions, and includes air groups. Map scale is 10 kilometers per hex and two days per turn. Each game map is part of a greater Master Map, encompassing the whole of Europe and parts of North Africa and Western Asia with a quarter million hexes. The Master Map will be released with the final game in the series.

Features

 


 

$49.95

 

 

The First Blitzkrieg contains seventeen scenarios and campaigns from the invasion of Poland to the Fall of France. There are also hypothetical scenarios drawn from Operation SEA LION (the planned German invasion of Britain) and “what if” the Allies had taken the offensive against Germany in the autumn of 1939. Players have the opportunity to alter the course of history on both the operational and strategic level.
