Hello, and welcome to Patton's Third Army! The road to victory lies straight through the Lorraine, a stretch of land perfectly suited to mobile tank warfare. The American army and its allies have been steamrolling through France and the Low Countries. The end of the war seems so near with the Germans barely able to put up a fight. But the Allied advance has slowed as supplies and fuel become scarce. Furthermore, the Allied strategic and logistical focus has shifted to the north as Montgomery pushes for a bold attack to Arnhem. However, Patton won't play second fiddle to Monty's offensive and has stored up enough supplies to launch a small attack of his own along the Moselle River in the Lorraine. As an American company commander you are part of this offensive when you take your force from Blood, Guts, & Glory into combat!
Blood, Guts, & Glory bridges the gap between the breakout operations in Normandy in August 1944, and the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944 and January 1945. This is a very exciting time for American players. New equipment is finally arriving at the front. New Sherman models, such as the M4A3, are a definite improvement on the breed. There are a lot of new features on these new tanks, but I'll let their game stats do the talking! Suffice it to say that the might of American industry combined with solid engineering have finally come to bear on the Axis! Faster more reliable Shermans are now on the prowl, heavy assault tanks like the Jumbo with its massive front armour plates are bouncing even the best German anti-tank rounds, and the smooth ride of the new M4A3E8 'Easy Eight' gives the gunners the ability to accurately put rounds down range while on the move. Furthermore, new ammunition for the 76mm and 3in guns has arrived to help even the odds against thick German armour. The technological gap that the Germans enjoyed in the early years of the war has all but disappeared! Take all of these technological advances and excellent tank design
