Fall of Empires:
The Eastern Front, 1914
In the late summer of 1914, the German General
Staff informed their Austro-Hungarian allies that
they would stand on the defensive against their
common Russian enemy. Undeterred by this reality,
the Austrians pushed forward with their plans to
attack. After initial successes, the outnumbered
Austro-Hungarian forces fell back with severe losses.
Fall of Empires is a stand-alone game in
Attacks series, our World War One equivalent
to the long-running Panzer
Grenadier series. Units are companies
and squadrons, and the sixty scenarios represent
actions from the opening battles of 1914 in on the Eastern Front between the Russian and Austro-Hungarian
Forces include the Austro-Hungarian Common Army's
infantry, mountain troops, artillery and cavalry. The Austrian Landwehr and Hungarian Honvédség, the regular armies of the two halves of the Dual Monarchy, also have their own infantry, mountain troops, artillery and cavalry. And the Bosniaken, the fierce Muslim regiments recruited in Bosnia-Hercegovina, appear in their own colors as well. Against that multi-national array, the Imperial Russian Army brings its own
infantry, cavalry, artillery, Cossacks and Plastuns.
The pieces are the popular silky-smooth die-cut type seen in Broken Axis and An Army at Dawn.
There are six semi-rigid mapboards, the same type
found in Panzer Grenadier games.
They are fully compatible with the Panzer
Grenadier boards — you can play scenarios
from either series on mapboards from the other
- Sixty (60!) scenarios.
- Six rigid cardstock maps.
- 781 playing pieces.
