A second battle from last weekend. A useful set of scenarios again from Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy No 100. My collection isn’t quite big enough to play the full scenario and campaign as listed so I have adapted for the figures I have and to make sure it is a balanced combat. The first scenario is based around the German defence of Hagevolden.
The background for the mini campaign is well covered in the article so I won’t list all the details here. In essence the German troops have been dropped into the heartland of Norway to capture the railway junction at Dombas but with limited supplies and reinforcements the small force has been cut off. The Fallschirmjager have dug in around Hagevolden, the Norwegian forces are on the attack and must force a way through.
We had ten units a side with fairly small units. The Germans have managed to recover 75mm gun from their supplies, the Norwegians have an early lend-lease French tank. (There we’re some French tanks later in the campaign but probably not at this early stage)
