Battle of Sawodskoij and Hill 186.9 - Estonian Waffen SS Panzergrenadier Battalion "Narwa" with 5th Waffen SS Panzergrenadier Division "Wiking" 1943

This is the history of the very first battle in which the Estonian Waffen SS Panzergrenadier Battalion "Narwa" partook. In fact the article includes details for three separate scenarios, though only one is written up. Enough details are included to play all three scenarios though. 

Two coloured maps are included, the first showing the areas in which all units invovled were located. The second, the positions of "Panzergrenadier Battalion "Narwa". 

Accurate T.o.E.'s for all units involved during the battle are included; - 1st and 3rd Waffen SS Panzergrenadier battalions "Westland" regiment, 5th Waffen SS Pioneer battalion "Wiking", 5th Waffen SS Panzer battalion "Wiking" and all of the necessary Soviet T.o.E.'s....

The battle lends itself well to being updated to modern by simply changing the T.o.E.'s and equipment to suit but leaving the battle maps as is. All three scenarios may be played separately or as one on a large table or group of tables. If played together, then ideal for a club style game.

Though originally written for 6mm and one for one vehicle and guns with infantry at section level rules. Because of the in-depth T.o.E.'s, "Platoon Level" games and rules are equally suited. Likewise the scale can be increased to whatever is desired for your own particular use. 

This battle gave the Soviets a very good indication as to just how well the Estonian's could fight and would lead ultimately to the formation of 20th Waffen SS Grenadier Division "Estonia". This division would carry on Waffen SS Panzergrenadier Battalion "Narwa's" excellent fighting reputation.

Product Information
File Size:
0.55 MB
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.
