Publisher/Brand: Legion Wargames
Product Code: LWG2002
Decisive Victory 1918 - Vol. 1: Soissons is a two-player simulation of the Battle of Soissons that took place in July 1918. The great German Spring Offensive has finally run out of steam, and the Allies are poised to deliver a crushing counter-attack. It was not known at the time, although suspected by many, that this battle was to be the death knell of the German army. The players take on the roles of the commander (and their staff) of the French 10th Army and the German 9th Army.
The battle is significant for a number of reasons: it was the first time that the French army used a large-scale attack with tanks supported by a surprise artillery bombardment, similar to the British attack the previous year at Cambrai, and it was the first time that full-size US divisions went on the offensive incorporated in the French army.
