Welcome aboard, Jerry! Am also a PANZERKRIEG fan and am wondering whether to plunk down the bucks for yet another edition by Six Angles of Japan. Had VON MANSTEIN'S BATTLES (the progenitor), then the OSG edition, then the AH edition, then theCoSi reprint...still have all these, so do I really need another? Just got the Paul Koenig's FORTRESS EUROPE by Victory Games and it looks like it fixed up AH's old FORTRESS EUROPA much like RUSSIA BESEIGED juiced up RUSSIAN CAMPAIGN.
