Blitzkrieg in the West 1940 Volume IV 42 Wargame Scenarios Belgians vs Germans

Watermarked PDF

42 historical wargaming scenarios for miniatures featuring battles between the Belgians and German armies in Belgium in May 1940.

These are all original scenarios. Each scenario is complete and includes the original 1940 map the battle was fought over, the actual troops involved and the missions they had. These are not vague approximations but researched historical simulations. The 18-day campaign in Belgium is given scant study but featured bitter fighting in a wide variety of tactical actions. This volume of scenarios features battles rarely studied and pays tribute to the Belgian's gallant and often over looked efforts. 

Optimised for wargaming rules that use one stand = one platoon but easily converted. Games range from small encounters to large set piece battles.

The contents are available to view in the Quick Preview; it's a little difficult to read so is available as a free download. Scenario 173, a typical large game, can be viewed as a Full-Size preview. All games follow the same format, but judge for yourself: a free example of Scenario 164 is also available for download. Click on the MGK Military Simulations link to find them.

Note that the asking price of $50 is in Australian dollars. At time of posting (November 2019) this equates to only about $33US or 26 pounds sterling. My other volumes include 50 scenarios but this one only has 42! To compensate, I have included a 48-page organisation for battle of the Belgian Army down to company level.

This is Volume 4 of 4. The 4 volumes cover all the combatants in the Blitzkrieg in the West. If you are interested in this period, click on the link above at MGK Military Simulations to see all of the products available. There are also bundles available.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
