Gateway to Berlin – The Battle of Kustrin – 31 January to 22 March 1945

From the creative wargaming pen of Piers Brand, we visit the apocalyptic rehearsal of the downfall of Berlin. The Battle of Kustrin was every inch as terrible and desperate, and for the miniature wargamer, had just as many opportunities to game out the vicious close quarters fighting that took place as in Berlin. Moreover, it features one of the last panzer attacks made by the German army. Over the course of nine scenarios, game out actions representative of the fighting in and around Kustrin. A variety of troop types and weapons featured in the battle, including King Tigers and everything from Wehrmacht Auxiliaries to Volksturm on the German side, and Lend lease Shermans and White Scout Cars, and assault engineers on the Soviet side.

The scenarios are rules-neutral, so feel free to adapt them for use with your favorite rules system. This book will have all you need to game this battle out and will be a jumping point to research even more actions set in and around Kustrin.

The more orders we receive the better book we can produce for you all!
New Incentive! When we hit 100 pre-orders we will release the finalised list of scenarios, and as an added extra we will look at including bonus content on the forces defending Küstrin and Soviet use of lend-lease vehicles during the period.

The sooner we reach 100 the quicker we can release the incentive!
