Designer: Don Greenwood
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Ste. Mere-Eglise was under strong attack from the north so the 507th Parachute Regiment was shifted into a supporting position SW of the town, leaving only the 1st Battalion of the 505th Parachute Regiment facing the Germans at La Fiere. The obsolete French tanks employed by the Germans on the Cotentin had been dealt with harshly in the streets of La Fiere the previous day, with four destroyed by a mere handful of paratroopers. Now the Germans would employ them again in more advantageous terrain. . .

2018-08-10(A) Lorenzo Marinaro vs Ruben Rigillo German win
2017-07-29(A) Jim Rupp vs James L. American winStarted out pretty good, but I started loosing it by not thinking of what I was doing. Left behind some support weapons, then couldn't get rate on my mortars except for one or two times. The end was when I had my whole line collapse on turn 4 (IIRC, 5 squads broken, with one ELR and one casualty reduced). From that blow, I was fighting for survival until the end. And to continue my streak, I had my two best leaders wounded, limping around in cover. This is one I would like to try again, as I left my tactics on the floor after about turn 3.
2017-01-28(A) David Garvin vs Logan Stallings German win
2015-10-22(A) Kermit Mullins vs Scott Waites DrawTurn 9...Germans finally have three buildings...but less than their squads. the Task over...great game though!
2014-12-28(A) David Yllanes vs James G German winGood scenario to get some practice with guns, vehicles and varied terrain types. The large turn limit gives you some leeway to make mistakes. I tried to advance very aggresively along the gully at first, but only managed to get almost all my leaders killed (the only one left alive was broken). Fortunately, I was able to reroute my advance and push through to the 24M4 building, where I installed a lot of firepower that prevented my opponents from launching an efficient counterattack.
