The Führer’s Escape
9th December 2012
Cost is £40
To be held at the Drakelow Tunnels beneath the Kingsford Country Park near the village of Kinver, Staffordshire, which cover 250,000 sq ft (23,000 m2).

The Scenario

On 4 May 1945, four days after Hitler’s suicide in Berlin, departing SS troops set fire to the villa. Only hours later, the U.S. 3rd Infantry Division arrived at the local town of Berchtesgaden.

A Small group of Recon Troops found a tunnel entrance heavily guarded. Asking the local populace on where the tunnel led, No-one knew, but 1 or 2 people had suspicions it lead to the Führer’s Berghof residence. Several local people claimed to have seen the Führer’s motorcade in the town at midnight two days before.

French Troops that had already visited the Berghof reported on its total destruction above ground level, but as it was still burning, they could not check the cellars.

Not knowing what to expect, the recon unit from the 3rd Infantry Division immediately requested specialist re-enforcements to explore the tunnels.
A small group of Airborne forces and engineers are en route.

The game will initially have places for 20 Germans and 20 Americans, with a maximum of 30 per side if the first 40 places book up.

Players pay for their booking up front to secure a place, on a first come first served basis. The cost will be £40. The main booking thread will open at the start of August 2012, this gives people lots of time to get ready, and a nice long run up to the game to allow people plenty of time to sell their place if they cannot attend later on.
