About the game.

Blitzkrieg 1940 is an exciting medium complexity tactical level game system for two players. 1940 saw the Germans overrun France despite often being hammered in tactical battle. As Blitzkrieg 1940 will show both the battles of Hannut and Stonne were very close run things. Now replay these hard fought battles on company level scale. 

Blitzkrieg 1940 has two scenarios: 

Hannut - The Shock of Tanks

The Battle of Hannut took place in Belgium on May 12-14. It was the first and largest tank battle so far in World War Two involving four tank divisions in a furious two-day melee. The game is a wild clash of 1940’s armor. A decisive victory is possible every turn and if no decisive victory is obtained the game continues for another turn... 

Stonne - The  Battle for Sedan

On May 14th Guderian’s XIX Corps had crossed the Meuse at Sedan and the road into the French interior lay open. The next day the Grossdeutschland infantry regiment was sent to capture the dominating heights at Stonne to protect the bridgehead’s southern flank. Through the next days Stonne would change hands fourteen times in perhaps the most brutal fighting of 1940. It is now up to you to break through and save  France or to hold on at all costs.
