Panzer Grenadier
World War II Tactical Combat

Panzer Grenadier is our platoon-level series of World War II combat. It’s easy to play and best of all, once you learn the rules to one of the games, you can play ALL of them right out of the box. And we cover everything you could possibly imagine, with more coming all the time. From well-known battles like the Battle of the Bulge, Kursk or Guadalcanal through lesser-known conflicts like the Austrian Civil War of 1934, the Peru-Ecuador War of 1941 or the India-Hyderabad War of 1948, Panzer Grenadier puts you in command of the troops, tanks and artillery that made history.

Our alternate history Iron Curtain line even covers a war that never happened, a Cold War turned hot in the early 1950's.
