Poland – 3rd September 1939

The third day of my World War Two campaign.  This one pitched two Infantry armies against each other on the Polish-Czech border.  I randomised the battlefield using the Memoir 44 board and a pack of playing cards to determine terrain placement and then transferred it to the wargame table.

Forces and objectives were generated as described in the attached report using the Memoir 44 dice.  It turned out to be a very short, sharp battle with – to my mind – an unrealistic ending as most of the German forces were still intact, but they set the Polish objective and then failed to adequately defend it!

So here is the game report.

The German strategic turn is ended. Poland now takes the initiative.
