"Sweat saves blood, blood saves lives, and brains save both." Erwin Rommel

It is 31st of August 1939... the eve of German aggression on Poland. Very few thought it would be the beginning of bloody conflict that will engulf the world in what will be called World War II...

At the Polish border 1st German Panzer Division is getting ready, among them members of Aufklärungs-Abteilung 4 (4th Reconnaissance Battalion). Within hours, they will spearhead advance of their division in quintessence of rejection Treaty of Versailles. Bold and proud are ready for combat... and enemy this time will fight back.

I am going to run RPG PbeM set in World War 2. It is RPG with tactical elements focusing on soldiers of Wehrmacht from the unit mentioned above. Game is intended as fast pacing so you should be able to post at least once per two days. Interest in the era is welcomed, but thorough knowledge is not needed – all information and help is provided. The game is going to be semi-historical and will follow the course of the war on operational and strategic levels. Because of that, only male characters are allowed.

The game will start in May 2008.

*This is not a game promoting Nazism or Fascism in any form. There are no committing atrocities.*
