Panzer Digest #5 contains two complete wargames, plus articles, reviews, and variant counters.

Breakout at St. Lo is a traditional hexagon two-player operational wargame set in the bocage of France in late July, with the numerically superior American forces trying to destroy the defending Germans and establish a strong breakthrough to the south. THUNDER GODS is a two-player tactical game that simulates the Japanese kamikaze attacks against US ships off Okinawa in April 1945.

Gaming articles cover Streets of Stalingrad, Guadalcanal Meets Salvo, NavTac 1914, and analysis articles on solitaire wargaming, graphics in game reviews, and a historical article providing background about Japanese kamikazes, tying in with the Thunder Gods game.

Additionally, there are game reviews on Twilight Struggle (GMT), War at Sea (L2DG), Barbarossa: Kiev to Rostov (GMT), and Nine Navies War(Decision), and the usual columns that make up each edition of the publication.

This 40-page issue includes inserts for the two issue games (two maps, two sets of color uncut counters (a total of 77 counters), Reference Card), plus 30 variant counters for the SoS and Breakout at St. Lo variants inside its pages. All told, there’s a lot of fun packed inside this edition!
