Road to the Rhine

INTRO: Road To The Rhine is a simulation of the Allied drive against the German Western Front, from September, 1944 through April, 1945. The game covers the initial attempts by the Allies to maintain the pace of their advance in the face of a rapidly deteriorating logistical situation, the German recovery culminating in the Battle of the Bulge, and the final Allied drive across the Rhine.

GAME SCALE: Units are divisions with some smaller units, there are four turns per month and the ground scale is unknown.

MINI-REVIEW: The one FTF game I've played as the Americans was a total rout as the British player and I decided on doing Arnhem the right way with lots of armor following up the paratroopers. We mercifully stopped the game. We had lots of fun bickering over the "too-few" supply points but came together to break the opponents morale. Maneuver supply, air power, reserve status and special units will give you plenty to think about.
