Old Hickory - New Campaign Book for Chain of Command

TooFatLardies has released a new campaign booklet for Chain of Command in its "Pint-Sized" campaign series. From its website:

Focusing on the action north of Mortain during the German counter-attack, Operation Luttich, we follow the action around one potion as Der Fuhrer Regiment of Das Reich attempt to push the US 30th Division aside.  Historically this is a much studied gritty defence by the yanks, Staff colleges aorund the world still conduct staff rides to look at the events.  We have foillowed the usual format, with historical background and period maps, then a selection of six potential battlegrounds to fight over. 

Thirty pages long, "Old Hickory" contains an overview of US operations in Normandy and beyond from Operation Cobra to the German counter attack at Mortain, Operation Luttich.  It goes on to present a mini-campaign covering the defence of L'Abbaye Blanche, a key position to the North of Mortain where the US 30th Division stood firm against 2nd SS Das Reich, and Der Fuhrer regiment in particular.   

The campaign is a total of six game tables with the duration running between three and eight games.  Briefings are provided for both sides, along with measurable objectives, period maps, force and support option listings and everything you need to play this campaign through to its conclusion.  

Like all of our Pint-Sized campaigns, this is available for the price of a pint in our local pub.  We're sure that you'll agree, that is great wargaming value!  


  1. Thanks for this notice, Benito. At some point I should add some US troops to my 15mm collection, maybe when I retire??

  2. Y yo juntando británicos... al final voy a tener que comprar yanquis.

  3. Another great small campaign. This is time to buy US soldiers...
