Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
In October Field Marshall Montgomery ordered the 2nd Army to break out from the Market Garden salient between Grave and Eindhoven. The main objective was to cut off the supply and escape routes of the German 15th Army. Unfortunately that part of Holland heavily favored the German defense. The approaches to Hertongonbosch, the first objective, were a defenderís nirvana. The ground was totally flat, dotted by small farms and woods, and crisscrossed by low earthen dikes and canals which provided the defender with ideal cover and observation positions. Cross-country travel in the wet boggy polderland was virtually impossible for wheeled vehicles and even fully tracked ones were prone to frequent miring. Compounding the environmental problems were the mines, troops, artillery and anti-tank guns the 712th Division had strewn across all likely approaches...
