Cristot has fallen but the path south to the next British objective of Fontenay-le-Pesnel, is blocked by the imposing feature of Parc de Boislande. This scenario is a Battalion level attack by 6 DWR supported by 24th Lancers against the Chateau de Boisland and its heavily wooded grounds strongly defended by dismounted elements of III Battalion 26th SS Panzer Grenadier Regiment. Once the stubborn Germans been driven from the woods, a strong counterattack develops. Led by Seigel's elite Panzer IVs, the remaining elements III Battalion 26th SS Panzer Grenadier Regiment assault the woods in their armoured Sdkfz 251s and accompanied by the Regimental Pioneere Kompanie. This game is a fluid attack and counter attack scenario on a small table with loads of woods! Normandy 17JUN1944 Richard de Ferrars & Paddy Green M

Operation Windsor - Carpiquet Airfield (PDF 286k)
A month after D-Day, Montgomery ordered Caen to be taken. As a preliminary, the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division was ordered to capture the village of Carpiquet its adjacent airfield. Lying 3½ miles east of Caen, its capture would outflank the German forces defending the northern suburbs of the city forcing them to withdraw south over the River Orne.

Carpiquet was a valuable prize as the Allies needed additional aircraft landing sites and were desperate to establish more reliable air cover. However, the airfield was open and well defended. The Allied tanks and infantry had to advance over an expanse of open terrain which offers a perfect "killing ground" for the defenders. The defenders were the 'elite' German 26th SS Panzer Grenadier Regiment from 12th SS Hitlerjügend Panzer Division who had fortified the entire area with mines, wire, pillboxes and field emplacements.

This is a massive and complex set-piece mega game from Bovington 09. It is played in 20mm ground scale and demands specialist terrain, many players, a huge table, and lots of time. Operation Windsor - Bovington After Action Report (972k)

Bloody Buron (PDF 232k)
The Highland Light Infantry of Canada as part of the 3rd Canadian Division are on eastern flank of CHARNWOOD and in Phase II and are given the task of clearing out the village of Buron, which was the scene of so much fighting on the 7th June (see the Authie Scenario). A strong force of tanks, funnies from 79th Armoured Division and infantry muster at the FUP between Les Buissons and Vieux Cairon prepared for the assault. Ready to meet them is a small force of 12th SS 'Hitlerjügend' Panzer Grenadiers who are well prepared and well dug in behind formidable anti-tank trenches, minefields and barbed wire. This will be a tough fight for either side which will test a players tactics in both breaching prepared defence lines and fighting in dense terrain and mixed urban areas.

Grimbosq (PDF 954k)
Brigadier Fryer's 176th Infantry Brigade forded the River Orne and established a bridgehead on the steep east bank. The destroyed bridge at le Bas had been repaired and construction of a more substantial Bailey Bridge had begun. Two counter-attacks by the 271st Infantry Division failed to dislodge the British and during the day the bridgehead was expanded and reinforced with Churchill tanks.
The Grimbosq bridgehead protruded deep into the German left flank at a time they were under extreme pressure from Operation TOTALIZE to the north. It was of immense importance and so Kampfgruppe Wünsche from 12th SS Panzer Division "Hitlerjügend" was been ordered to restore the situation. They are to make a strong attack with PzIVs, Panthers and Tigers supporting 2 battalions of Panzer Grenadiers to crush the bridgehead. The attack is to be launched from the Forêt de Grimbosq into the narrow streets of Grimbosq and Brieux. This battle saw Captain David Jamieson of the 7th Norfolks awarded the Victoria Cross for his part in this fighting.
This is a very large demonstration game put on at Bovvy 2013.

Taming the Tigers - Totalize (PDF 204k)
TOTALIZE phase 1 has been an complete success for the Allies, in the morning of 8th August the German defensive line is in tatters and the road to Falaise lay open. All that stood in the way of the First Canadian Army was the battle worn 12th SS Panzer Division "Hitlerjugend.". However, because of the planned carpet bombing by the 8th USSAF, the Allies dug in and waited for the inevitable counter-attack. Kurt Meyer knew that the situation was critical and reacted by throwing KG Waldmuller, including Michael Wittman's Tigers into a savage and bitter counter attack - but did he send his forces into a trap or execute a tactical masterstroke that restored the German line?
A sizeable and complex 2 part linked scenario that flows from attack to defence. Phase 1 can be played on its own.

High Ground Sighted (PDF 250k)
During the 2nd Canadian Corps push southwards from Caen a Canadian taskforce was ordered to capture the high ground at Point 195. The Canadians advanced quickly through minimal German resistance but strayed off the main highway. High ground was sighted and the column headed for it.

The scenario begins with the taskforce fighting their way through some weak resistance and reaching a strong defensive area before confidently reporting to their pleased Corps Commander that they hold Point 195. For the 12th SS the situation is again critical and Kampfgruppe Wunsche and his "Big Cats" are mobilised to destroy this Allied thrust that has pushed into the heart of the Hitlerjugend defensive line before it could be properly formed.

The ensuing battle sees the Canadians grimly clinging on to the high ground against increasingly overwhelming odds waiting on relief forces that may or may not arrive? This is a long and complex scenario with lots of potential for friendly fire, confusion and consternation for the Canadian player. It is best played with an umpire or with an experienced German player who can co-ordinate the game.

Quesnay Woods (PDF 149k)
The initial success of "Totalize" Phase 1 contrasts with the disappointing progress of Phase 2. After a stunningly successful attack led by Lt-Col Dave Stewart and the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada, Hill 195 lies in Canadian hands. They are dug-in and controlling the road to Falaise but attempts to reach them by 4 Cdn Armd Div and exploit their success have been stopped by flanking fire from tanks from Kampfgruppe Wünsche concealed in Quesnay Woods. This is now the vital ground and so, in the late evening, General Simmonds orders the 8th Infantry Brigade to assault and take the woods. This is a medium sized scenario set in dense woodland.

Idaho and Soulangy (PDF 109k)
Following the Mortain counter-attack the 12th SS Panzer Division 'Hitlerjugend' is tasked with holding the northern shoulder of the Falaise pocket open to allow the retreat of the defeated German Armies to the west. The Canadians are pushing south towards Falaise to complete the encirclement but following success of Operation "Tractable" have advanced beyond the range of their artillery. Nevertheless they must advance and take the high ground of 'Objective Idaho' and the village of Soulangy which are critical to the defence of Falaise. Standing in their way is the battered remnants of 'Papa' Krause's kampfgruppe supported by and handful of tanks. This is nominally a medium sized scenario that comprises two inter-dependent small scenarios and can easily be fought as two separate vignettes. Normandy

After Market-Garden failed, one of the primary objectives was the clearing of the Scheldt estuary and expanding the Nijmegen bridgehead Westward, with the ultimate objective of opening and protecting the major port of Antwerp. The British XII Corps was tasked with expanding the Nijmegen Salient westward and capturing the German fortress of 's-Hertogenbosch (also known as 'Den Bosch'), thereby cutting the German 15. Armee's line of communication with LXXXVIII. Korps, which was stationed south of the Maas.

Sittang Bridge(.pdf) The main Japanese attack in the invasion of Burma began on 20 January 1942 as two divisions crossed the frontier, forcing the inexperienced defenders to fall back from one defensive position after another. On the morning of 22 February, the 1st Battalion of the Japanese 215th Infantry Regiment made a mad dash to cut off the retreat of the 17th Indian Division at Sittang Bridge. The fate of Rangoon and thousands of Allied soldiers rested on the shoulders of a few hundred men from the 3rd Burma Rifles, 4/12 Frontier Force Regiment, and 2/Duke of Wellington's Regiment.
Note that the ground scale of this scenario is 1" = 27m, which is what is used usually for 20mm. The rectangles on the second page of the .pdf are small rulers set up for this scale.

Imphal - The Turning Point
When the Japanese overran Southern Burma, they sent their eventual sights on India. However, horrible terrain, challenging logistics, and increasingly stubborn Commonwealth defenders prevented a rapid victory. The Battle for Imphal marked the climax of the Japanese threat and their defeat in this campaign ultimately led to Japanese defeat in all of Burma. The following scenarios are all based on the battles of the Imphal campaign.
