Here's then Alan R. Arvold's next set of true-to-original situation conversions. As the original 20 situations from Panzer Leader game itself were covered originally in his Ode To Panzer Leader and Ode To Panzer Leader II archives, this then marks the situatios as of his Ode To Panzer Leader III archive:

From his Design Notes for Ode To PL III:

quote:



This continues the conversion of scenarios from Panzer Leader to West Front. The scenarios presented here are from the article “Panzer Leader, 1940” by Ramiro Cruz, from the General magazine Volume 15, #2. The main theme of these scenarios is the Battle for France in 1940. Nine of the scenarios deal with battles from that campaign and the other scenario deals with Operation Sealion. Eight of the battles are already covered in scenarios in West Front and its various expansions, so why present these? Well, remember that we are converting Panzer Leader scenarios, and these scenarios were really nothing more than caricatures of the real battles. While the real battles make for good scenarios in West Front, the Panzer Leader ones make for some interesting ones as well.

As before these scenarios are converted to the same standards as those in Ode to Panzer Leader I & II. For the original design notes for this series, refer to those in Ode to Panzer Leader. Thus these design notes will deal with the set up and construction of the scenarios. Variables such as changing the environmental conditions, morale, or changing the orders of battle for either or both sides, I leave to the discretion of the individual players.

One will note that most of the scenarios are rather small compared to previous ones in the series. Many have a low unit density on big boards and thus will lead to more free-wheeling play in the scenarios.

Please note the scans are hundreds of megs in size, only attempt if you have the bandwidth

    If you're like me then you will agree there just isn't enough early war scenarios available! Also, while the late war PL/PB situation conversions can feel a bit claustrophobic when places on just two or three map boards, these early war scenarios play like a dream there

    PL France 1940 situations are among my top favorites, I hope you guys enjoy them too! Again, my thanks to Alan R. Arvold for sharing his work with community

    Thank you for making these scenarios. I like early war scenarios too and I'm looking forward to trying these out.
