2017 Team Yankee Campaign
Situation, 15 August, 1985 (see illustration inside cover of Volks Armee or Leopard)
GDR 9 Panzer has taken Arnhem. 2nd Guards Army having threatened Amsterdam is now withdrawing to solidify its lines. Dutch 1st Corps and British 2 Corps are holding the existing left flank and preparing for offensive operations. Recently arrived US 3 Corps, with aid of Panzer Divisions 1 and 7, has counter attacked forcing a retreat by 2nd Guards Army and 20th Guards Army.
Word has come down from SHAPE that NORTHAG may no longer give ground to PACT forces. They will be pushed back beyond the Iron Curtain!
Meanwhile, The Kremlin is instructing its Army Commanders to regain the offensive, and push all the way to The Hague.

Playing Games in the Campaign
During the entire campaign, anything players decide to do with their games that is not a manipulation of the scoring, and which is considered fair by both players is acceptable. The purpose is to play games and have fun, so if you don't like any part of the format please do what you and your opponent both prefer. If you can't agree, then I suggest sticking to the format.
For the first phase of our campaign, players will decide games using the the Battle Plans system on the TY website.
1. Agree to a point level
2. Set up terrain
3. Announce what formations are in your force
4. Use battle plans
5. Exchange lists
6. Play your game
7. Report your results using the forms at the register
*Return the form to the clipboard
Tell us about your game on the forums
Periodically, I will update the situation on the ground to reflect the results of the games played.
Remember, your first game against any opponent counts for the Best Commander Contest. All games reported for the outcome of the campaign as well as a contest for most games played at Asgard.
*Players are reminded they must play 3 games at Asgard to earn prize support. Also, don't forget to use your coupon you receive when you sign up at the Asgard Register.
