NATO kept the Warsaw Pact behind the Berlin Wall until its dissolution - but what if it hadn't?

The Bear Marches West contains 12 wargame scenarios set during a fictional Warsaw Pact invasion of West Germany in the 1980s. All the scenarios are based on battles depicted in well-known novels, and are designed to be used with whatever rules the players wish.

Each scenario includes the battle's context, weather conditions, deployments, force lists and a colour map. The scenarios range in scale from small skirmishes, with a company on each side, to large engagements, with Soviet regiments bearing down on smaller but better-equipped NATO units.

Alternative TOEs (modelled on actual US Army formations, rather than the formations described in the novels) and scenario maps as JPEG files can be downloaded free from the author's website:
