Am I missing something? (newbie)

Hi all,

I just installed the game, it cost little now, and I am longtime interested in the military history of the Battle of the Bulge.

Hence my problem: the battle in the game has not the slightest relation to the real battle i.m.h.o.!

I cannot play the way the real battle was fought....

This is my first problem in the beginning: I have no small units with which to block the German routes, which was main characteristic of the first days. The problem of the unsuitable terrain for offensive WAS the main issue for the German forces. And that I cannot play with....

Am I overlooking something here?

no you are correct, but you maybe should have looked at the game play vids or comments first, it's abstracted combat

OK, thanks.

I like the game system though, so it is not wasted money. I have already been looking for a mod to see if the units could be edited somehow :D

As I see it the red signs of forbidden crossings are having that function. So it is not bad after all :D

Nope, not one thing you said was inaccurate especially the historical part which including when before starting the next day when clicking on history (one specific part) in one case it is just plain horrible!
