Designer: Unknown
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
On June 12, the 7th Armoured Division advanced to exploit a perceived gap in the German lines southwest of Caen. As the leading tanks and motorized infantry drove into and beyond Villers-Bocage, they were cut to pieces by a few Tiger tanks under the command of tank ace, SS-Obersturmfuehrer Michael Wittman. With their drive so rudely halted, the "Desert Rats" attempted to hold Villers-Bocage but the appearance of the 2nd Panzer Division prompted them to pull back to the vicinity of Tracy-Bocage. There they formed into a tightly packed defensive box, North African style -- which the troops promptly nicknamed "The Island". On the 14th, the Germans attacked. . .
