Contexte historique :
The Siege of Bastogne was an engagement between American and German forces at the Belgian town of Bastogne, as part of the larger Battle of the Bulge. The goal of the German offensive was the harbor at Antwerp. In order to reach it before the Allies could regroup and bring their superior air power to bear, German mechanized forces had to seize the roadways through eastern Belgium. Because all seven main roads in the Ardennes mountain range converged on the small town of Bastogne, control of its crossroads was vital to the German attack. The siege lasted from December 20 to December 27 when the besieged American forces were relieved by elements of General Patton's Third Army.

Briefing :
Axis Player:
- Take 4 Command cards.

Allied Player:
- Take 5 Command cards.

Conditions de victoire :
Axis Player:
- 6 medals

Allied Player:
- 5 medals

If Allied units occupy 3 Town hexes in Bastogne at the end of their turn, they win immediately.

Règles spéciales :
Whenever either player plays an Armored Assault card, at the end of the turn place 3 Allied tank units on the 3 hexes marked with an "X".

Both forces had ample time to dig in and fortify their positions. Therefore all sandbags are permanent.

All the Allied units are special forces of the 101st Airborne division. Therefore, there is no need to place Ranger badges with the units.

101st Airborne may move 1 or 2 hexes and still battle.
