Description

Located about five miles north-east of St Lo, Hill 192 would hardly be classed as hill on most military maps. But in a countryside where a significant high point is twenty or thirty meters (sixty-five to one hundred feet) above the surrounding countryside, Hill 192, named for its height in meters, was a strategic point that would cost a lot in American lives.

The hill was thickly covered with heavy foliage, and commanded a six-mile area. The Germans had been fortifying Hill 192 for months. It was studded with foxholes, machine-gun nests and expertly camouflaged observation points. Hedgerows sprouted along its gradual slope. Behind these, Germans huddled in dugouts.

From Hill 192, the Germans had an uninterrupted view north over the 2nd Division's lines. The lines-of-sight also dominated towards the west, overlooking all the approach paths that would have to be used by the 29th Division’s attack to capture the town. Following a pitched battle on the 11th of July, the 2nd Infantry Division finally secured this high ground, paving the way for the capture of St Lô five days later.

Success at Hill 192 came dear and re-named some of the terrain, including “Purple Heart Draw”, so named for the cost in lives to the 23rd Regiment who had to clean the Germans out of there to secure the left flank of the attack and then on up the back of the hill along the paths used by the 38th Regiment in their fight to reach the summit.

TOBRUK DEPROGRAMMED launched the detailed new BRL 1192 game SYSTEM and allows you to recreate the war in North Africa during World War II. The ultimate tactical-level game presentation is coupled with easy-to-understand and use rules and updated charts to enable you to re-create all the facets of the decisive Battle of Gazala—Rommel’s most spectacular victory that led directly to his defeat at El Alamein only a few months later. Unlike its predecessor, the new BRL 1192TM game engine that is at the heart of Tobruk DEPROGRAMMED equips you to experience Gazala AND the entire war in North Africa. What’s more, MONSTER gaming is part of the system with DTT expansions, plus additional battlefields, counters, and MORE ... make this a new journey that will entertain and educate you anew.

BRL 1192 delivers breathtaking action and suspense at the scale and detail true tactical-level enthusiasts demand—individual squads, weapons and tanks. All the subtle nuances of tactical-level combat are provided by the system: gun duels; separate pivoting turrets; AFV indirect fire; coaxial machine-guns; melee; smoke; armor penetration; morale; AFV overruns; and more. Tanks are modeled using discrete armor values at turret, superstructure, lower hull and track aspects and front, side and rear facings and allows for the realistic use of High Explosive, Armor Piercing, APCR and HEAT ammunition. This is all accomplished using a detailed yet intuitive system that avoids the use of side notes, pre-recorded written moves and is SOLITAIRE friendly.

This expansion module for BRL 1192 includes one LARGE HEX map + 8 scenarios that play on the map + a new M4A1 Damage Table with Panzerfaust HPT. All the rules you need to add to the core BRL 1192 rulebook are also provided on this folding card. This is NOT a complete game. Ownership of the BRL 1192 Core and any expansions providing American counters is required to play. This product is 100% MADE IN THE USA.
