KANNE, BELGIUM, 10 May 1940: Sturmgruppe Eisen's main objective was the capture
of the bridge crossing the Albert Canal in the village of Kanne.
Five gliders landed on the plateau nearby the PC commanding strongpoints
"C", "D" and "J". Attacked by the
near with machine-pistols and grenades, the PC only gave a brief
resistance then the paratroopers quickly dispatched the squads
in the portion of "C" north of the sunken road. Victory
was just seconds away went the bridge blew up. The 15 minutes
delay taken by Sturmgruppe Eisen since Sturmgruppe Granit had
started landing on the nearby Fortress, had allowed the Belgian
command sufficient time to send firm orders to destroy the bridge.
The men in the Communication bunker were then captured or killed,
ending the initial phase of the attack.

Albert Canal, the bridge at Kanne, and the glider landing in less

map and new set of counters, ALL the combat counters you need

of any historical module to date.

system markers is required. A collection of combat counters is
