£9.00CRETE The Airborne Assault (PDF)
A PDF version of the 32 page full colour booklet. Four scenarios for the four most important landings of Operation Mercury: the invasion of Crete by German fallschirmjager on 20th May 1941. Against alert New Zealand, Australian, British and Greek defenders, the parachute and glider assaults on Maleme, Prison Valley (east of Maleme), Retimo and Heraklion were close fought battles that hung in the balance. Capturing the uncertainty of the real thing, these carefully researched scenarios are designed to be played with our Reloaded and Reloaded Extra rules (or RF2 if players prefer) and include historical backgrounds, full graphic orbats, battle maps and special rules.
