A brand new Panzerschreck release is now available! The Panzerschreck Anthology is a 76-page, digest sized issue containing classic and new articles and games. Part retrospective, part "best of", part classic, and part new, it's great to have a new Panzerschreck product available! Order your copy today!
Fifteen issues of Panzerschreck have been published to date since issue #1 hit the stands in the Summer of 1998. The Panzerschreck Anthology gathers together in one magazine some of the best articles from the past, as well as plenty of gaming fun. In addition, some new articles, and a brand new game, have been included as well. Something from each issue (whether article, game, or both) is included in the Anthology.
We envision the Anthology appealing to different groups of people. Some wargamers may have heard of Panzerschreck, but never took the plunge and ordered a copy. The present work is a great way for this group to get a taste for what the magazine is all about... and enjoy some great gaming along the way. Secondly, there will be those who have some, but not all published issues of the magazine. The Anthology will provide an opportunity for them to get choice items from the past to help fill in the gap. Finally, for you Panzerschreckers who own everything Minden has published, we've included enough classic articles and games, plus some new material and a new game (not to mention the handy new format), to provide inducement for you to add this to your collection as well. The goal is to spread the fun as widely as possible, and we hope that the Anthology has done the trick.

The new MADAGASCAR game is a solitaire hexagon wargame designed by Gary Graber, editor of Panzerschreck magazine. The game simulates the British (the player) invasion of northern Madagascar in May, 1942 against its Vichy French defenders. Scale of the game is 12-hour turns, 3 mile hexes, battalion level.
A word about the format of the Anthology is in order. While the latest issues of Panzerschreck have featured full color components and die-cut counters, most of the back issues featured games using unmounted counters and simpler graphics. We have judged that publishing this retrospective in the older style (but with thicker, cardstock counters in color) was appropriate. Plans for future issues of Panzerschreck remain the same (with die-cut counters) as we look to the future.
Truth be told, the PANZERSCHRECK ANTHOLOGY is chock full of fun! We're confident that you'll be impressed with what's included, and will agree that it provides a lot of bang for your wargaming buck. We're very pleased to add it to the exisiting Panzerschreck canon!
