Operation Eisbar – The German Invasion of Kos 1943
Another great Mark Piper scenario to download. The Battle of Kos was a brief battle between British, Italian and German forces for the control of the Greek island of Kos, in the then Italian-held Dodecanese islands in the Aegean Sea in October 1943. Many thanks to Mark.
New Normandy Scenarios
We’ve added four ‘fast play’ scenarios designed by Ian Willer to the free downloads page. These are small scale actions based on engagements in Operations Epsom and Goodwood. Each is played on a 6′ x 4′ battlefield and can be fought to a successful outcome in a couple of hours. Many thanks to Ian for donating these.
New Normandy Orbat – Free to Download
We’ve added a new 200 to 400 point orbat for 3rd Fallschirmjäger Division to download. This division moved up to Normandy from Brittany on 10th June following D-Day and was heavily involved in fighting the US 29th Infantry Division during their attempts to capture St Lo.
Villers-Bretonneux – a WWI scenario by Mark Piper
Something a little different. To mark the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI and the forthcoming ANZAC day Mark Piper has written a Rapid Fire scenario based on the Counter-Attack at Villers-Bretonneux which took place on24th/25th April 1918. This can be downloaded from the Free Downloads page – thanks Mark.
