First to fight

31.97 12.65

After losing the September Campaign in 1939 many Polish soldiers were evacuated from the country and began a wandering life that lasted until 1945, sometimes even longer. Poles fought on all fronts of World War 2 and greatly contributed to the victory over the Axis. Now you take the roles of the members of the General Staff and command Polish troops in their fight against the Third Reich. The forces of the Axis will fall to their knees if you don’t go down before them!

Out of stock


The players become commanders of the General Staff and aim to earn Victory Points by succeeding in missions drawn at the beginning of the game. This task is not simple, as all of the players want to send the same soldiers to different regions! They do it by choosing order tiles that determine the actions everyone should take, but the person who is the first to select a given order gets a special bonus. Who will turn out the best commander in May 1945?

The game presents true historical characters, events and places. “First to Fight” shows the scale of various activities that took place during the war – but it is not a wargame. In a short time (around 60-90 minutes) a player will get to know many people and places that played an important role in achieving the victory over Germany. Among the soldiers you will command you can find: Antoni Chruściel ps. Monter, August Emil Fieldorf ps. Nil, Jan Kozielewski ps. Jan Karski, Zdzisław Jeziorański ps. Jan Nowak, Stanisław Maczek ps. Baca, Jan Piwnik ps. Ponury, Zofia Rapp-Kochańska ps. Marie Springer, Stanisław Skalski, Elżbieta Zawacka ps. Zo, Witold Urbanowicz ps. Kobra. In order to win the game you will have to train your soldiers and send them to various fronts – from the cold regions of Northern Europe, through the sun-baked deserts of Northern Africa and peaceful (only in theory!) Western Europe, to Warsaw, always fighting to the last bullet and the last soldier!
