(Franc-Tireur #14 ID:LFT242)
Designer: Steve Swann
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Under the codename Operation Ladbroke, the British 1st Airlanding Brigade was to capture the Ponte Grande bridge spanning the Anapo River in eastern Sicily to allow for a quick march on Syracuse by the 5th Infantry Division. 144 gliders set off from Kairouan but only 54 actually landed in Sicily; the rest got lost or were shot down. A reduced force attacked the bridge before midnight and captured it. They removed the demolitions and prepared for the inevitable counterattack.

2019-04-27(D) David Garvin vs Doug Bush Italian winIt came to the final DR, but the Italians won. No matter that my MC DRs were crap, the fact is that Doug was able to maneuver a good amoeba against me and he was making me roll. In spite of me slaughtering many of his men (he came at me in three directions and 2 of those attacks were reduced to nil), he came at me from the East side and in the end was able to grab the final hex on the final turn. Great game!
2019-03-16(D) Tom Kearney vs Lindsey Murillo British winThe Italians were unable to make any headway.
2019-03-02(D) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best British winDan Best and I gave this scenario a shot. Dan's Italians hit me from both ends. The northern attack was disrupted, while Dan's OBA rained down here and there. On the south end, Dan rolled up my weaker defenses and prepared to rush the bridge. My 9-2 with the MMG laid down the firelane the length of the bridge and road and the Italians melted as they rushed the bridge on Turn 6. My British would win a close one.
