Product Description

In March 1939, the small nation of Slovakia declared its independence from Czechoslovakia and immediately became a satellite of Nazi Germany. Slovak troops became the first Axis forces to fight alongside the Germans, joining in the invasion of Poland in September 1939. They also marched into the Soviet Union in 1941. After five years as the most minor of allies, the Slovaks turned against the fascists and fought with the victorious Allies in the last year of the war.

First Axis is a 64-page book supplement to the Panzer Grenadier series, focused on the battles of the Slovak Army against the Hungarians, Poles, Soviets and Germans. There are 30 new scenarios plus background articles on the armies and weapons involved and unit organization diagrams. This module is not playable by itself, but requires ownership of Eastern Front, Road to Berlin and White Eagles to enjoy all of the scenarios.

First Axis includes 88 die-cut and mounted playing pieces. Almost all of them represent Slovak forces, including the small country's surprisingly large array of tanks. There are also a few new Hungarian tank pieces included. The book's format is the same as the very popular White Eagles and Fronte Russo books from Avalanche Press.
