Introduction:

Beyond the Beachhead offers players the opportunity to do cardboard battle on more "Normandy-like" terrain. The scenarios range from 6 June to 25 July, 1944 with a variety of forces including U.S., British, Canadian, German, and SS. The Battlepack includes the following:

2 geomorphic mapboards depicting Normandy terrain (HOB III, HOB VI)
2 geomorphic overlays (the overlays fit on to either Normandy board: village; Bocage hill)
8 Action Packed Scenarios
Cover that includes special rules (describes terrain, Light Bocage, etc) and LOS examples
The 2 overlays fit on to either mapboard in the pack, essentially creating 6 possible boards. Also, the overlays can fit on to some other boards.
With the new Bocage artwork it is possible to have hedges and Bocage on the same mapboard!
