DESIGN NOTES FOR SCENARIOS OF ODE TO PANZERBLITZ III

By Alan R. Arvold

Continuing on with the conversion of Panzerblitz scenarios to East Front II ones, these six scenarios presented here comprise the next set. They follow a particular theme, that being that they all occur in the year 1941. These scenarios were originally published in two different articles in the General Magazine. Five of these scenarios came from the article “Panzerblitz 1941” by Ramiro Cruz, in General Vol.13, #3. The other scenario came out of “1941 Panzerblitz” by William A. Farone, in General Vol.14, #3. While none of these scenarios were very popular, they did point the way for other authors to explore the early years of the war using Panzerblitz and in that they succeeded, considering the number of early war scenarios for the game are around today.

As before these scenarios are converted to the same standard as those of Ode to Panzerblitz I & II. For the original design notes on these standards, refer to the original Ode to Panzerblitz. Thus these design notes will deal with the set up and construction of the scenarios. Variables such as changing the environmental conditions, morale, or changing the orders of battles for either or both sides, I leave to the judgment of the individual players.

One will note that these scenarios are rather small compared to the previous ones. Indeed, five of these scenarios are one board scenarios and all have a low unit density on the boards. This will lead to more free-wheeling play in these scenarios. Also these scenarios do not recreate specific battles, but rather recreate specific situation, even though historical unit designations are used in them.
