The Battle of the Bulge

Author File Description
File Details
Needs T&P?: Yes
15 December 1944. The Western Allies are extremely confident and most believe the war will be over by Christmas. General George S. Patton is preparing for his planned attack into Germany in a few days time. Little do they know, that the Germans would launch a major offensive the next day.

This offensive was ordered by Hitler, and is to use Germany's last strategic reserves. The preparations have been carried out in utmost secrecy. Even the name of this operation, "Watch am Rhein", meaning Watch on the Rhein, suggests it is a defensive operation. Three armies, the 6th SS Panzer, 5th Panzer, and 7th Armies have been assembled to carry out the attack. These armies include 250,000 men and over 1,000 tanks and assault guns.

The assault begins in the early morning of 16 December. The objective is to punch through the thinly held Ardennes sector which has seen little action for months, and has been nicknamed, "The Ghost Front", by the Americans. The 6th SS Panzer and 5th Panzer are to cross the Meuse River and sieze the vital port of Antwerp, and in the process surrounding the Allied armies in the north. Meanwhile, the 7th Army is to protect the southern flank. The aim is to kick the Western Allies out of the war and concentrate on the Eastern Front.

The Ardennes sector is only held by new recruits with no or little combat experience, and units that have been severely mauled in the battles in the Hurtgen Forest. They are no match for the Germans, and the Germans make good progress at first. The Allied high command at first thinks this is a spoiling attack to divert Patton's forces. However, they realise this is a major attack after a while, and Patton's US Third Army from the south and the British forces under the command of Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery in the north hit the Germans in the flanks. The Germans lose the battle and end up in their starting positions.

You have the chance to change history and win the war in the west for the Germans. The fate of the Third Reich rests on your shoulders. Will you capture Antwerp, or will your forces be destroyed by the Allied armies?

nemesszili So, you forgot several things.The map is somewhat accurate, diplomacy between American and British forces is not set (they were allies!).
Also,towns do have only houses,no temple market,or anything.Nukes are not disabled,nor Wonders.Also,a scenario without script is not the best scenario...
I haven't rated yet; I give you time to repair these things then re-post it.
But I liked that you got superiority in armor(as it was in the battle).
Although, nice try as a first map!Good work!

Nemesszili, I will try to fix the problems. Thanks for pointing them out. Just one question. How do you disable nukes?
nemesszili If you let me to script your scenario, I would disable the wonders and the nukes.I would type the Historical Background,after seizing Antwerp the real ending of the battle etc. And also, you could put the map's layout in Arctic.And,because of the weather, the Allies were not able to use their air superiority,so disabling the Airports will also make the battle very historical.

Thanks for the offer, but I just found out how to disable nukes yesterday after searching around. I've already started on a new version with the problems fixed. Thank you very much anyway.

By the way, the allied air power was rendered useless due to the weather for most of the battle only. There was a little clear weather from time to time where the allied fighter bombers wreaked havoc among the German panzers and infantry.

I have fixed the problems except for the script, which I have decided not to include in this scenario. I will make scenarios with scripts later. The link for "The Battle of the Bulge version 1.1" is here:
