JC over at Real and Simulated Wars is doing a series of blog posts on "book vs. game" where he reads a historical book and then plays out what happens in a war game to see if game engine approaches historical reality. First to the plate is BftB...check it out here:

Julio finished up this first comparison here: http://kriegsimulation.blogspot.com/2012/06/game-vs-book-i-kampfgruppe-peiper-and.html

I think the game stood up very well to the historical outcome... it unfolded differently of course, but the net result was eerily similar.
