Panzer Grenadier: Elsenborn Ridge
In late December, 1944, German panzers rolled into
the wooded hills of the Ardennes in eastern Belgium,
striking a final blow against the American troops
forcing their way toward German territory. Elsenborn
Ridge covers the fierce fighting on the “north shoulder” of the Battle of the Bulge between
the U.S. First Army and the German Sixth SS
Panzer Army and Fifth Panzer Army. The heroic stand
at St. Vith by 7th Armored Division, the “panzer
graveyard” of Krinkelt, the destruction of
1st SS Panzer Division — it's all here, and
Elsenborn Ridge is a stand-alone game in
the Panzer Grenadierseries: You do not need any other game in
the series to play any of the 35 scenarios. These
include fierce tank battles and infantry actions,
including the failed drive of Jochen Peiper's battle
group toward the Meuse River, 3rd Armored Division's
destruction of 2nd SS Panzer Division, the American
stand along Elsenborn Ridge and the collapse of
the 106th Infantry Division.
Pieces include American paratroopers, German Tiger
II tanks, American P47 fighter-bombers, German "Nebelwerfer"
rocket launchers, and much more. Both German regular
army and Waffen SS troops are present. There are
four semi-rigid mapboards, created by artist Guy Riessen.
Elsenborn Ridge is packaged in Playbook format, with a book including scenarios and rules, but no box.
