Grenadier: Blue Division
When Nazi armies launched their sneak attack
on the Soviet Union in June 1941, Spanish
fascists exulted. Still nursing deep hatreds
from the Soviet role in the Spanish Civil
War, thousands volunteered to fight alongside
the Germans. Spanish dictator Francisco Franco
organized them into a “Blue Division”
to carry the fight to the Russians and, not
coincidentally, send the most politically
active fascists far away from Madrid.
Blue Division is a supplement to the
Panzer Grenadier series, focusing on
the actions of this unit between 1941 and
1943. Organized as a standard German infantry
division, the Spanish unit fought well in
some of the hardest fighting of the campaign.
This module is not playable by itself, but
requires ownership of Eastern
Front and Road
to Berlin to play all of the scenarios.
All the new pieces represent Spanish volunteer
forces: infantry, ski, engineer, motorcycle,
bicycle and machine-gun troops; anti-tank
guns, mortars and artillery, and of course
leaders. Scenarios cover actions of these
units between their arrival on the Eastern
Front in October 1941 and their departure
almost exactly two years later.
