Switzerland must be Swallowed!

Description

Please note that this is a DTP (Desk Top Publishing) game designed on a desktop computer and all components, including the counters which will have to be cut and mounted, are printed on paper. These are designed by some very well-known designers and are a low cost alternative to today's professionally produced games. On rare occasions, some of these games are reproduced by other companies with higher quality components including die-cut counters but most of them are not. If you believe this game to have a professionally produced version, please contact us with your inquiry and we will help you to locate it if it does indeed exist.

Adolf Hitler's early stated political aim was unification of the German people into one powerful and respected Germany. In this he initially succeeded, except for one case: the Swiss Germans. Absorption of the Swiss Germans was planned, but never carried out "Die Schweiz muß noch geschluckt werden" (literally: Switzerland must still be swallowed) was the name of the operational plan approved in August 1940 to do just that.

Switzerland Must Be Swallowed is a hypothetical simulation of the planned assault on Switzerland by Nazi Germany during World War 2. Players represent the military high commands directing their forces during what was sure to be a trying fortnight for all concerned. Fortunately for the German player, Adolf Hitler is busy elsewhere and will not interfere with your battleplans.

The 11 x 17" map covers all of Switzerland at 20 kilometers per hex. The 280 counters show Swiss and German regiments and divisions, including mountain and airborne troops.
