(Attack of the Grenadiers)
Scenario 82N06 in my series the 82nd Airborne in Normandy
Now available in three versions – H2H, single-player U.S. vs A.I. German, and single-player German vs A.I. U.S. Why three versions? To make adjustments to each version to account for the significant difference in ability between real players and the A.I.
It is June 6th 1944. After having driven Lt. Levy’s troopers from the Cauquigny bridgehead at the western end of the la Fiere causeway, elements of the III./1057th Grenadiers, 91. Luftlande Division are preparing to storm the la Fiere causeway and recapture the bridge and manor on the east side. A bombardment is covering their preparations and they will set off at 1600.
Victory conditions are strictly terrain objective based and are asymmetrical (i.e. differently valued for each side).
In this, the first German attempt, the German infantry numbers are roughly on par with the Americans which is/was an unfavourable situation for any attacker. However, pumped up on the amphetamine Pervitin and supported by a significant artillery barrage and elements from the 100. Panzer Ersatz und Ausbildungs Abteilung, the German attackers are full of self-confidence in their superiority.
