Advanced Squad Leader scenario 3 The Czerniakow Bridgehead
It’s September 22nd 1944, Warsaw. The 1st Polish Army, fighting under Russian command and the Polish Home Army (the famous “Kampinos Battle Group“) defended the Czerniakow Bridgehead withdrawal against Kaminiski’s White Russians, fighting under German colors across the Vistula.
The “Germans” need to take more CVPs than the “Russians” and have enough on Board 8 to exert 20 unmodified FP at the end of 10 turns.
- This is a fair good German team, 7 leaders totaling -5 Leader mods.
- The Poles have numerical superiority : 27 squads vs German’s 15 (balanced off by half the team having bad ELR). We have a force that will happily swap bodies in CC.
- The 1st Polish Army need to recover quickly post “bombardment” and re-situate to interdict where the Germans decide to cross in force.
- The Poles don’t have the firepower to engage the Germans inside buildings and have to seek shooting opportunities in Open Ground.

November 9 1942, Germans at the Barricady noticed a nice red house. They pulled up some fresh pioneers and told them to go mess with it.
What follows is one of most beautifully crafted, and an oft played ASL scenario (150:147 G:R).
(Typo Russian Turn 3)
This is September 4 1939, Poland. The Poles rushed the Maczek brigade to plug gaps in the defense. The Germans win this scenario by taking 12 buildings in 5.5 turns.
Here are some of the AFVs involved by the way (from the wonderful site – Tanks Encyclopedia) :
The Ejw(b) is armed with a 47* (TK8) and a FP6 CMG. AF2/1.
The Edw(b) has twin turrets (6×2*), each with a wz.30 7.92 MG which can be fired independently of each other. AF 2/1.
The TKS is armed with a FP2 BMG and the TKS(L) with a 20L (TK6). AF 1/0.
The Pz IIA was the main battle tank in Poland, spotting a 20L (TK 6 IFE 4) and a FP5 CMG. AF 1/1.
The Pz IB has a FP6 CMG that does 2 TK DRs per hit. AF 1/1.
The PSW 222 is an OT armored car with 33MP. It has a 20L (TK 6 IFE 4) and a FP6 CMG. AF 1/1.
This is one of the more popular Friendly Fire scenarios. It’s Poland, September 1939 and the Poles launched an offensive against a German flank. The Poles win if 6 or more German squads equivalents are eliminated or captured. Each wooden building containing => 1 Polish squad equivalent equates to a German squad eliminated.
Oi .. we are playing in the rain this time. Heavy rain that adds +1 LV every 6 hex. That’s also why all our VASL screens looks .. well, rainy.
The 9 squads of Queen’s Victoria Rifles are rushing in to grab 6 buildings out of 8 from 5 squads of Germans. There are of course 5 AFVs helping the Brits out against the 3 German ones, well, 3 German AFVs AND an AT gun.
