2006 Annual - Toppling the Reich

2006 Annual - Toppling the Reich

"The enemy has committed a major blunder by continuing to fight west of the Rhine."

-- General Montgomery, January 21, 1945.

Toppling the Reich is an operational level simulation of the fighting for the Rhine River and Westwall that occurred in 1944 and 1945. Designer John Prados transports his Panzerkrieg game system to the Western Front to examine the major episodes of this clash.

Campaign Study #1 - Wintergewitter

Campaign Study #1 - Wintergewitter

“This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang but a whimper.”

-- T. S. Elliot

Wintergewitter, operation "Winter Storm," began as the final outside effort to relieve surrounded Stalingrad, with a scratch Panzer Korps made up of units from all over the theater (and the strongest, 6th Panzer Division, coming back from refit in France!). Supported by already shaken Rumanian units, the force had 110 kilometers, two rivers, and two Soviet armies to cross...

Campaign Study #3 - Bradley's D-Day

Campaign Study #3 - Bradley's D-Day

“The second best decision, in time, is infinitely better than the perfect decision too late...”

-- Omar Bradley

Campaign Study #3, with Bradley’s D-Day inside, looks at the American efforts all along the right flank of the Normandy landings. While Utah Beach seemed relatively easy, it was at Omaha Beach where the Germans came closest to derailing the greatest sea-borne invasion of all time...

(NEW) The Asian Way of War Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for just $72.00!

Westerners have generally overlooked big events in the East-- unless someone like Genghis Khan or Tamerlane brings it to them. The only "Eastern" battle in the the Mitchell/Creasy "20 Decisive Battles that Changed the World" is Midway.

But there have been many significant wars and battles on the far side of Russia. Now, the Asian Way of War looks at three of the most intense, fought entirely between Asians.

The Musket’s Way of War

Three ziplock ATO back issues for just $72.00!

From the earliest battles, "ranged weapons" (like slings, spear throwers, bows) have been an important part of an army's structure... but melee/shock weapons were still where battles were usually won or lost.

That is, until the musket became an ever-larger part of armies all over the world....

"The Musket's Way of War" crosses three centuries to show the evolving nature of warfare and the emergence of the musket-armed infantryman as "Queen of Battle."

All for one low price...that includes shipping!

The Naval Way of War Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for just $72.00!

The Naval Way of War gives you a remarkable spread of important but little- known battles and campaigns.

Like the first real battle of the 100 Year’s War... a naval action that set the stage for centuries of English sea superiority. While details are misty through the ages, all agree the battle was Right Fierce & Terrible.

Or the little known “Seven Weeks War” of 1866, fought between Austria-Hungary and the forming nation of Italy. A remarkable naval action where an admiral, outnumbered two-to-one, had the temerity to order, There Must Be a Victory (and pull it off).

Or the opening campaign between Hitler and the just-entered-the-war U.S., where a handful of U-boats did more damage than what happened at Pearl Harbor, a unending “drumroll” (Paukenschlag) of sinking ships and high casualties.

It’s The Naval Way of War, from ATO Magazine. Three great issues at one low price.

The New World's Way of War Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for just $72.00!

It all kept coming back to one question--would the "Old World" rule the new one?

All the kings certainly wanted to. They wanted the cheap natural resources and the captive markets. But the people in those "markets" wanted to govern themselves.

And so history records one revolution after another, as each place declared the right to local rule.

And winning, despite long odds that said maybe they were foolish to begin. In the end, it would be the kings who looked foolish, over and over again.

Get all three games above for one low price, and see how much "revoltin' fun" you can have.

The Classical Way of War Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for just $72.00!

Unlike today's push button world, there was a time (well actually for most of recorded history) when men fought hand to hand, completely aware of who they were killing and being slain by in return. A time when the sights and sounds and even the smell of battle could send men into a battlefield frenzy or send a visible shudder of fear through the ranks.

Welcome to the Classic Way of War, three fast paced games that test the very nature of man

Now, here is your chance to pick up great titles at a bargain price - indeed, back then they called it "plunder!"
