Mortain Aug44: Old Hickory vs. the SS

A Note on Copyright

Mortain Aug44: Old Hickory vs. the SS is COPYRIGHTED -- NOT Public Domain -- and FREE under the following conditions:


Mortain Aug44: Old Hickory vs. the SS is dedicated to ...
A. ... the peoples of Europe invaded and occupied by Nazi Germany, who suffered and endured so much and fought so bravely as our allies in World War 2 and who are our good friends and allies now,
B. ... our U.S. and Allied servicemembers who served and fought so hard, bravely, and intelligently,
C. ... my children Rebecca, Robert, Rohan, and Johanna in the hope they and all our children never have to suffer and die in another world war.
D. ... and Knox College (Galesburg Illinois) ROTC Military Science commander Colonel Henry M. Jordan, who kept alive my interest in military history and service after my withdrawal from West Point earlier in 1965. (Indeed, my military history report project, featuring a 1/72 scale model of a British Tempest tank-busting fighterbomber, was about Mortain.)

The more we learn about the Second World War, the better our chances that it will be the LAST world war. (LRC)

For anyone interested, I strongly recommend you watch the Academy Award winning documentary film The True Glory, restored by our National Archives, at . Also, there is the combat-inspiring 1941 feature film Sergeant York, and Alvin York was from the hills of Tennessee like many in our U.S. Army National Guard 30th Infantry Division were (as well as from Kentucky and North Carolina).

A Request: If you do assemble and play this free game of mine, PLEASE let me know at what you think of it and whether, after more than a couple games, you think one side or the other has an advantage. Thanks!


More comments by myself and others about the game can be read on Talk Consimworld Com and (not yet) BoardGameGeek.
