REVIERES, FRANCE, 17 JUNE 1944:After ten days of heavy fighting in the close country, the Germans still held the Villiers-Fossard salient, the tip of which extended to within four miles of Omaha Beach.  Time and time again American infantry assaulted the German lines, but somehow those lines held.  And now German reinforcements were arrving, including fresh troops of the Infanteriedivision 353, whose Regiment 943 had bicycled all the way from Brittany.  Some way of breaking through the bocage had to be found before American losses became intolerable.  Download.

Near CAUQUIGNY, FRANCE, 6 June 1944:
Scattered in farms and villages along thirty miles of coast, the German 709th Infantry Division had been awaiting the invasion for a year.  This unit had been formed 18 months before around a core of German veternas from the Russian Front, and filled out with a large number of conscripts from occupied countries.  Shortly after midnight on June 6th, the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division dropped into the midst of the 709th.  The mission of the 82nd was to hold open the causeways across the flooded terrain behind Utah Beach, thus allowing the invading units rapid exit while preventing the Germans from reinforcing the beach defenders.  Although utterly disorganized by the night drop, the 82nd had begun to regroup and push aside the 709th when, as dawn broke, the 1057th Grenadier Regiment of the 91st Air Landing Division attempted to break though to the beaches.VICTORY CONDITIONS: Use the conditions as set or use the requirement for the Germans to be able to trace a contiguous line of road hexes from the east to west edge (top to bottom) free from Good Order (not pinned or demoralized) squads (not leaders) on adjacent to it.AFTERMATH:  American paratrooper training stressed individual aggressiveness and initiative.  ON the morning of D-Day, this training paid full dividends.  Small knots of Americans, who would not surrender, seemingly blocked every road.  The advancing grenadiers found themselves attacked from all sides.  As the fight degenerated into dozens of small unit actions, the causeways remained in the GI’s hands.  By midnight of June 6th, the entire U.S. 4th Infantry Division was ashore and a secure beachhead was assured.  Download..

“The Battle of Mortain”

US 30th Infantry Division “Old Hickory” – Avranches 1944

Ozgur Budak strikes hard with this 8 scenario battlepack covering the Mortain fighting of August 1944. Definitely rivaling the stock scenarios in the way of playability, these 8 scenarios use a mixture of ASL as well as historical maps that were included with the stock game. Ozgur has also stripped down the fighting into smaller sized battles heavily focused on playability. These are still rough for the Germans, just not nearly as impossible as the stock Mortain scenarios seem to have been. Also included is documentation by the 30th ID’s Commanding General.  download

Crashlanding at Tavronitis

Ozgur Budak

20 May 1941   Tavronitis River Bed, near Maleme Airfield, Crete

One of the key objectives of the Operation Mercury, the German invasion of Crete was the Maleme Airfield located northwest of the island.

German High Command knew that they needed the facility for logistics ensuring the success of the invasion so they picked it as one

of the key objectives for the first day of airborne operations. German high command planned a series of glider landings to secure the area for parachutists. A major landing zone was the bed of the Tavronitis River. It was given to the assault forces known as Group Koch commanded by Major Koch. However, apart from the unexpected enemy presence, the landing zone was a terrible place for gliders. They had to land on olive trees, small patches of swamp and broken terrain under enemy fire; regroup and fight their way to the RAF Camp and Hill 107. download

Revenge at Kastilli

Ozgur Budak

20 May 1941   Kastilli, Crete

A number of Greek regiments, understrengthed and poorly armed but with grim determination after the defeats of the past month, were on Crete. On the day of the German paratroop assault, one such -the 1st numbering a bit over 1000 men- was stationed near Kastelli near

the western end of the island to protect its small harbor. German troops landed east of the village, and north and south of the main road nearby. Needing no urging from the New Zealand officers attached, the Greeks -though poorly armed- sallied out to meet the enemy. Even the local Cretans went out to attack Germans. For the Germans, a jump to capture the village had become a struggle for survival. download

Riposte at Dusk

Conversion by Ozgur Budak

25 May 1941   Galatas, Crete – ASL

The 25th had seen the start of the final German offensive to smash the British line and capture Canea and Suda. It had been a bloody day for both sides, but in the end the British lost Galatas, the key to maintaining a solid defensive line. Colonel Kippenberger had just barely managed to stop a total rout as he ignored the crack of bullets and crash of mortar rounds to walk among the 18th Battalion troops shouting “Stand for New Zealand!”. Now a desperate counter-attack to restore the line was to be made by the only fresh troops left; C and D Companies, 23rd Battalion. A determined shout issued from the 200 men as they moved forward; the shout was heard by the tank crews within their noisy compartments and by German units several miles away in the Prison Valley. A number of Greek regiments, understrength and poorly armed but with grim determination after the defeats of the past month, were on Crete. Needing no urging from the New Zealand officers attached, the Greeks -though poorly armed- sallied out to meet the enemy. Even the local Cretans went out to attack Germans. For the Germans, a jump to capture the village had become a struggle for survival. download

Cut the Road to Marseille

ASL Conversion by Ozgur Budak

19 August 1944   Toulon, France –

The 4th Squadron of the 3éme Régiment de Spahis, 3éme DIA was assigned the task of clearing and securing the strategic Camp crossroads controlling the roads to Aubagne. Having reconnoitered the area earlier in the day, a plan was devised to take the German defenders by surprise. Intelligence estimated the poorly armed and motivated students of a German NCO school manned the defense. Captain Riviere signaled for the assault to begin shortly before 1800 hours. Dismounting from their halftracks, the Spahis advanced behind a screen of Sublieutenant Ponticelli’s light tanks. This would be the first taste of combat for many of the Spahis and as they approached the village, the only signs of activity were some German soldiers cutting firewood. download

After having their initial probing attacks dealt with harshly , the now determined Italians would come in force. download
