Designer: Don Greenwood
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Ste. Mere-Eglise was a junction for five roads and was recognized by Germans and Americans alike as the key to defeating the airborne invasion. Shortly after midnight the village’s garrison had massacred in mid-air two sticks of paratroopers who had the misfortune of being dropped right on the village. Inexplicably, the Germans had returned to their beds where they were captured or shot four hours later by avenging paratroopers of the 3rd Battalion. Having given the village away, the Germans would pay dearly to get it back. . .

2019-07-19(D) Martí Cabré vs Ramon Sarobe American winI did a mistake in my right flank setup, with too little coverage, and the Germans pushed that way but I managed to burn one of the R35 with a BAZ there. On my left flank I simply kept my units under concealment and the Germans did not have enough firepower to break them, until the Marder started to hit units. In the center the Germans put their death star and slowly advanced, but I simply moved the units away to both flanks. My AT burned another R35 from one flank to the center where it had moved and the situation stalled. The Germans slowly advanced and took three of the five buildings but when advancing to take the fouth he fell below the 9 unbroken squads cap and lost the game. With so low quality troops the Germans must put everything into rallying units to avoid the cap.
2018-11-02(D) Lorenzo Marinaro vs Ulric Schwela American win
2018-05-12(A) Allen Evenson vs Bud Nicola American winI was a bit too aggressive and Bud's Americans made me pay. I was doing OK until running below the 9 unbroken squad limit turn 3. My 9-1 couldn't rally two squads for 3 player turns (needing 7 and 6). Fun game with a great opponent.
2018-03-18(D) Pieter Van Innis vs Don Holland German win
2017-08-12(A) Richard Jenulis vs Bud Nicola German win
