Broken Ground Design makes three types of partisans, all are two toned ones. But their "Southern European" ones have all the vehs and sp wpns that Titos Partisans used.They generally are but has a TPP created counters that represent those counters with something other than Russian brown?
What's the name of the new book that came out on the partisan movement?Anything old on Yugoslav Partisans would be really outdated, because there was such a paucity of information. We know more now, including the attempt to professionalize the army once it had liberated most of the country and could easily get supplies from both Western Allies and the Soviets. But even now there's a paucity of information. Just this past year, the first overall military history of the partisan movement in English came out since the 1970s, when the communist regime published a broad look in English (with all of the shortcomings those details imply).
TAHGC/MMP, the latter especially re the Yugoslav partisan vehicle pieces added in later modules. For rather good reason, MMP has yet to augment/adjust Partisan Infantry pieces though (beyond the Nationalities rules/footnote tweaks suggested as applicable via SSR re some Partisans in some situations -- changes which make the basic Partisan Infantry counters play differently). Per others, TPP products noted upthread too, of course, but these are of limited utility, I expect (more on that below).Did anyone ever make a set of Tito’s forces?
Agreed.Anything old on Yugoslav Partisans would be really outdated, because there was such a paucity of information. We know more now... But even now there's a paucity of information...
Thus, partisan contributions in the war are hard to gauge, as the records are thought to contain as much inseparable myth as fact.War in the Shadows - The Partisans in ASL - by Charles Markuss An90p53 said:Perhaps the greatest contribution made by French partisans was to goad the [Germans, after D-day, into reprisal operations that delayed] the dispatch of the 2nd SS Panzer Division to Normandy for some ten days.
While I can follow your point with regard to the Finnish "supermen" & partisans, I don't know if we really need another class of German squads.One good arguement for an expanded Partizan OB lies in the arguement for the Finnish "Supermen". Often Partizans were facing very poor secondline troops. In order to reflect this, you need to either downgrade the troops they face (do we need yet another class of German squad?) or upgrade the Partizan unit. A 6-4-8 may not fairly reflect a Yugoslav partizan but might when facing a 4-4-7 who should really be a 2-3-6!
Wow. $59. I'm sure there are other military history books that are more expensive, even. This is just outta my league, as far as desire to pay that much for a military history book. No criticism implied, just commenting on my pecuniary approach to this, as opposed to those who are just on another level, especially when one considers how many books Mark has. Much respect.I put a link to it in the previous post.
