70th Anniversary of Operation Bagration

Hello All

Today marks the 70th anniversary of Operation Bagration. I think with the 70th anniversary of D-Day Bagration might be a little bit forgotten about, but in real terms this was just as if not more important than the D-Day operations. The Germans lost between 400,000 and 500,000 men killed or captured and that was a lost they could never recover from and they never regained the initative on the Eastern Front.
To mark this anniversary we are going to play the Firestorm Bagration campaign. We are playing the short campaign which starts on the 26 June, so expect to see the first AAR out on that day. We want to keep it fairly themed so we are only going to use Grey Wolf and Read Bear books and any PDF's that are themed around the Eastern Front during the battle.

We are all really looking forward to the campaign as a change from one off games, tournament games and a chance to reenacted a piece of history.

Thanks for looking and I hope you'll keep an eye out for it.

Thanks Ben


  1. Oooh, I look forward to reading the reports! And by the way it is also the 73rd anniversary of Barbarossa.

  2. Cool, great to see Bagration isn't totally overlooked! It's pretty much unheard of in the west outside of us military geeks :-) Looking forward to following the campaign, and I've been enjoying your EW battle reports lately too. Cheers, Paul :-)
