This is an excellent article by Warlord Games, directly related of course to Bolt Action. What if the Allied Forces had clashed into the Soviets at the end of WW2. While I don't think either side had the will to fight beyond what was needed to at that point, it wouldnt of taken much to spark what would of ended up being a very bloody battle at the end of the war.

As it is with Wargames, these scenarios can be played out with Bolt Action, and while would not decide anything, would be a good excuse to pit some allied forces against each other.

The warm and friendly meeting of American and Soviet troops at Torgau on the River Elbe in April 1945 seemed to herald the end of an era of total war and be ushering in a new period of peace and cooperation.

“In my opinion, the American Army as it now exists could beat the Russians with the greatest of ease, because, while the Russians have good infantry, they are lacking in artillery, air, tanks, and in the knowledge of the use of the combined arms, whereas we excel in all three of these. If it should be necessary to fight the Russians, the sooner we do it the better."
