Introduction:

Operation Cobra was the codename for an offensive launched by the First United States Army, seven weeks after the D-Day landings, during the Normandy Campaign of World War II. The objective was to punch through the German defenses and advance into Brittany, rolling up the German flanks and freeing itself of the constraints imposed by operating in the Norman bocage countryside. Operation Cobra, together with concurrent offensives by the Second British and First Canadian Armies, was decisive in securing an Allied victory in the Normandy Campaign.

Unfortunately, the OC scenarios require maps from Beyond The Beach 2, so one cannot buy Operation Cobra alone and expect to be able to play the scenarios. The 20 page article on bocage rules, richly illustrated, may be worth the p... Read full review...
