The Château: The Dirty Dozen
An Oddball Game to be held at SWAT URBAN, Shotton, Deeside
on Sunday 3rd June 2012

Price: £35

This is the second “Oddball” event to be held and combines elements of “The Dirty Dozen” and “Allo, Allo” which, along with a unique urban site that contains a 1908 Grade 2 listed house, looks to bring humour and entertainment to the WW2 airsoft genre.

 

The Mission

In England, in the spring of 1944, Allied forces are preparing for the D-Day invasion. Among them are Major John Reisman, an OSS officer.

Major Reisman is assigned an unusual and top-secret pre-invasion mission: take twelve soldiers convicted of felony offences, either serving prison sentences or condemned to death, and turn them into a unit capable of carrying out a specific task. They are to infiltrate a château near Rennes, in Brittany, used as a retreat for senior Wehrmacht officers, on the eve of the invasion. Without having complete intelligence as to the identity of the guests, it was felt that the elimination of officers in the German high command or senior staff could cripple or confuse the German military’s ability to respond at the time of crisis. It is quickly established that both Reisman and the generals with whom he frequently clashes consider the mission to be a suicidal long shot. After a long period of convincing and training the men, they are deployed to attack a château in France, housing German commanders, intending to disrupt the German command structure.

The unit is also under orders to work with and assist the French resistance units in that area.
Shortly before their mission the British have sent a small SOE unit to prepare and supply weapons to the resistance unit lead by a local man René Artois, they were also to recon the area and send back intel.
Unfortunately nothing has been heard from these men.
