The German local commander has ordered his troops to probe the area and see if there is a way to recapture the bridge.

The farm will serve as an observation point with overwatch to support tomorrows full scale assault on the bridge.

Scenario 34 - Watery Graves

The flooded fields that were meant to limit allied movement are making the German reconnaissance patrols difficult.

Time to go and see what the Allies decided to send us.

Scenario 47 - Night Watch

The Paratrooper forces have secured La Fière Bridge. However, there are several fords up and down stream of the Merderet, which means protecting the flanks of the bridgehead from a German counterattack has become the priority. Night has fallen. All is quiet as US forces hunker down into their positions but something is definitely in the air...

Scenario 48 - Retake the Manor

Scenario 49 - Get to the Lake!

An Allied plane has been shot down and has crashed landed in the Paturage de Vache. Nearby Paratroopers have been tasked with recovering any survivors and must protect them as they escape.

There is no running from this fight. The objective for both Americans and Germans is to get to the bridge, and hold it against the enemy. Small advance forces from both sides have approached the bridge during the night and have been setting up initial fire bases to cover the reinforcing troops. Take the bridge... at any cost.

Scenario 113 - Bumps in the Night

Sgt. Harrison is having a difficult time taking the third gun. Suppressive fire on the right flank is making forward progress almost impossible.
