Starter kit scenario?: Deluxe scenario?:
At dawn on May 10, twelve HE 59C Floating
Planes and five antiquated seaplanes landed the 120 specially trained assault
troops of Kampfgruppe Schrader on the Maas River in Holland.
Foreshadowing Operation Market Garden, these troops were assigned to capture
and hold the strategically vital twin bridges leading north into Rotterdam
for the advancing 9th Panzer Division. Initial success came easily, however
the Dutch Garrison Commander, Col. P.W. Scharroo was able to isolate the
pocket by placing both bridges under direct machine gun fire. Upon learning
of the approach of the 9th Panzer, on May 12 the Dutch high command placed
its best available unit, an elite Royal Dutch Marine detachment, at Col.
Scharroo’s disposal to eliminate the Germans and destroy the bridges with
Attacker: Dutch (Elements of Machine Gun Co., 3rd Battalion 39e Regiment Infanterie and Royal Dutch Marine Detachment - East Indies)
Defender: German (Kampfgruppe Schrader: Pioneer Battalion 22 and 11th Company, 16th Infantry Regiment, 22nd Infantry Div. Luftlande / Reinforcements from the 3rd Battalion, 1st Fallschirmjäger Regiment)
