The spelling of the seventeenth century. I'm showing my age.

So, shouldn't it be 'balle' as well?

Seven Days to the Rhine - isnít this based off the WWII rules Cross of Iron? Would seem a good option to have gone with that version if you want to play WWII


But having said that the core of the rules is the activation/reaction mechanism. The vehicle stats are pretty simple

Iron Cross is the WWII "version" of Seven days (in fact Seven days is based on Iron Cross)

They share the initiative / activation / reaction mechanism and Iron cross has some extra/better rules for MG teams, snipers, etc. and national characteristics

The pdf version of the rules is cheap and available directly from Great Escape Games grab it and try again! Good luck!

(I play both games and have pretty much given up on Team Yankee / Flames of War)

The only Cross of Iron I know are for Squad Leader...  Could you provide me a link please ? I'd be interested.
Yes the stats are very simple, but i don't really care as far as I can tweak some bits.

Thank you
