"The Valley of Heros 1961" an Alternative History of the British Forces Southern Germany*

A Scenario by Hedgehog

Amid Rising Tensions between WARPAC and NATO forces the 1st BR Corps has been forward deployed to their wartime positions.

In Berlin US and Soviet Tanks Face off at Checkpoint Charlie, one false move.....


Excerpts of the battalion commander's orders for...

A Squadron: The Queen's Own Hussars.

When: 0800 27 October 1961 (local time)

Where: Furesteneck, Federal Republic of Germany


    a) Enemy:
    As a result of the growing EAST/WEST Tensions, Intelligence Estimates the forward element Battalions of the 22nd Guards Tank Regiment** are being deployed to their Forward Assembly Areas.
    Air Reconnaissance confirms this. Intelligence believes the Warsaw Pact is preparing for war, IF the situation deteriorates, you can expect a Soviet Set Piece assault shortly, before the end of the day at least.


 b) Own:
    1st BR Corps are deploying to their wartime position as a precaution against Soviet belligerence and aggression.
    The overall mission of the Queen's Own Hussars is to delay or repel ANY Soviet advance.
    You are FREE to Prosecute Any WARPAC unit on WEST GERMAN SOIL.

    Our direct forces:
    A Squadron (Us/You) are currently in Lagaar just North of Eiterfeld, A sqn has a full warload, but being "Centurions" we have little fuel, and need a topping up after the crash out march from barracks.
    Attached to us from KOBR is a Mechanised Infantry Platoon (with their fancy new APCs) from King's Own Border Regiment forward deployed to Soisberg, acting as a tripwire force.
    Other Forces:
    B Squadron is deploying to our South in the Rodenbach Valley (Not represented here)
    C Squadron is the Regiment's Reserve.
    Attached is 36 Regiment Royal Artillery.


c) Attachments and detachments:
    Detached 3rd Troop - currently supporting the remaining KOBR Infantry to our north.
    Attached 1 Platoon KOBR


As soon as you are fueled up head into the Sauer Valley and link up with the Mech Inf Platoon.
A Squadron's mission is to delay the WARPAC advance up the Sauer Valley towards UFHAUSEN while C Squadron & the Engineers prepare our main defensive position around FURSTENECK.



Intent: is to Impose a DELAY and NOT a Decisive Engagement, on the Soviet advance on Ufhausen until C Squadron is in place and ready, at approximately 10:00 hours local time. (~T+ 120mins )

Engineers are digging emplacements around Furstenbeck and should be ready in around an hour.
Engineers during the night have emplaced buried minefields as marked on the map.

Preplanned Vehicle Emplacements have been constructed in the Sauer Valley in the Vicinity of PL Gladius & Pugio.


Divisonal Artillery & Aviation Assets may be made avalible depending on ongoing operations.
6" Howitzers have 36 rounds of HE
4" Howitzers have 24 rounds HE, 16 rounds Smoke.
