Issue 122 - Baptism of fire for Kompanie Schmalz
In issue 122 of Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy, we look at ad-hoc, rear area and other improvised units in warfare. During operation Market Garden, the Germans threw every available unit into the line. On the Dutch-German border near Nijmegen, these efforts were coordinated by Korps Feldt. Here, Nick Skinner presents a scenario to replay an attack by the thrown-together soldiers in that Korps on a roadblock setup by the paras of the US 82nd Airborne division.
