Parroy Forest

0630 AM October 9, 1944
South of the Rhine Marne Canal, the Parroy Forest provided German assembly areas for their September counteroffensive into Patton’s right flank toward Luneville. After the attack failed, 79th INFANTRY DIVISION assumed control of the sector. US XV CORPS ordered the Division to clear Luneville and the Forests of Mondon and Parroy. Unlike many forests in western Europe, the Parroy contained dense undergrowth. Distances for observation and fire were reduced providing opportunity for cover and concealment. While there is no single terrain feature which dominated the forest, aerial photos showed a dug-in defense system based on strong points strengthened by wire, mines, and pillboxes. Even WWI trenches remained. The system centered around Crossroad 709 and was stoutly manned by the 15th PANZER GRENADIER DIVISION recently transferred from Italy.

  1. This scenario does not require a DLC or mod.

    Please note that the French version is available on the good blog CombatMission.fr : http://www.combatmission.fr/final-blitzkrieg/et-pour-quelques-scenars-de-plus/parroy-forest/

    Great work Kevin!

  2. Started this one up with Bootie and I am the Germans… will provide feedback at battles end…

  3. I won this with a US Major Victory. It was hard, depressing going battling through the woods as Im sure it must have been in real life but I don’t think there was much in the way of options to advance due to the defences in the area, wire etc. So not much chance for tactical decision making. It was a grind for sure and although the German artillery didn’t hit me if it did it would have ended this battle as they had a ton and heavy stuff too!!

  4. I played the Axis in this one vs. Bootie, First off, you are sorta stuck with the setup, cant move or position much (me dont like that)… and then when getting pounded by Allied Armor and saying to oneself, If only I had a chance to put these units/wire/mines here or there which would make sense to me… Nuts…

    On a Scale of 1 to 10

    1-enjoyment, I did crapola
