The Battle of Mokra, 1939 - part 1
The toys I had finished were some additions to my 1939 Polish forces and I also rebased the originals. More toys soon, but let's have a look at the battlefield.
The real battle took place on 1 September 1939 a little way north of the town of Klobuck and saw 4 Panzer Division getting a rather bloody nose from the Wolynska Cavalry Brigade and an armoured train. And all this took place in an area which easily fitted on my table. This is really as small a game as Megablitz will cope with, and would normally occupy only two players.
Below is the table, showing Polish forces already deployed. South is to the top. Mokra is the L-shaped building west of the railway opposite the line of woods. The BUA at the southern road junction is Klobuck and that at the eastern crossroads is Lobodno.
