Against the Odds

7th Brigade Defiant to the Last


Against the Odds: Battle for the Golan Heights is a game simulating the Syrian attack on the Golan Heights during the opening stages of the Yom Kippur War, between October 6-9, 1973. The Israeli forces were extensively outnumbered in the opening thrust but in the end, they held their ground, blunting the Syrian thrust and forcing them to withdraw.  The withdrawal was a timely break for the Israeli’s, as unbeknownst to the Syrians, the Israeli defenses were on the brink of collapse. Against the Odds: Battle for the Golan Heights concentrates on a small segment of that desperate battle through both historic and variant scenarios.
