[Sticky] Game Scenario
August. 1944. The German 7th Army finds itself in a critical position. With General Patton swinging to their south, racing past their positions, a renewed push by the Canadian Army from the north threatens to cut of the entire army, spelling certain destruction.
Von Kluge fails to answer the FÃ¼hrerâ€™s demands for an immediate attack, and on the 17th August is replaced with Model. Model wastes no time in refusing Hitlers order and ordering an immediate, and speedy, retreat. The writing is on the wall, if 7th army does not get our now, it never will.
Having captured Champeaux, on 19 August, the Polish battlegroups converged on Chambois and, reinforced by the Canadian 4th Armoured, they must link up with the U.S. 90th Infantry, and French 2nd Armoured, Division.
The arms of the encirclement are almost complete but the Allies are not yet astride Seventh Army's escape route in any great strength. And even when they have linked up, will they posses the strength to even slow down what will now be one very desperate German Army?
Our game takes place in France 1944 and features one of the few battle where British and American uniforms were worn side by side in close proximity. The battle features the Canadians, Polish, American and French. The only European uniforms not present are those of the associated airborne arms. Arayed against them are German soldiers form all arms, as 7th Army tries to break through the encirclement. Please see the section on uniforms for more information.
The game will run from 12:00 Saturday to 12:00 Sunday. We will stop on Saturday late afternoon, at around 6pm, for people to get some proper food. Then at about 9pm we will go back out for the fun 'escape in the darkness' mission. We will then rest for the evening until Sunday morning. Sunday's play will run from 9:00 until 12:00.
As we have a whole, whopping, exciting 4 Germans, they will not, of course, have to 'toe the battle line' against the allies.
Our scenario has been written with the proportional numbers in mind.
Both sides will have a command post where extra water etc can be left.
