Semi-historical scenario based on a “Battle Stations Problem” presented in Wargamer’s Digest, Volume 9, Number 9 (July 1982).
British forces are keeping the pressure on German armoured forces south of Caen. Scattered German units are being driven back toward the Odon River. The German I SS Panzer Corps is attempting to hold firm on the near side of the river.
In solo play, balance your at start forces with your reinforcements and attempt to stop the British from capturing two vital villages astride the main supply road. Or take on a human opponent as both sides launch tanks and infantry at each other.
