POINTE DU HOC, NORMANDY, 6 June 1944:
The destroyer USS Satterlee observed
enemy movements and swept the cliff-top with fire from all guns;
nevertheless, scattered fire from flanking position caused casualties
as the Rangers debarked on the heavily cratered beach. Colonel
James Rudder, leading the three companies of Rangers, was one
of the first ashore. Germans suddenly appeared on the cliff edge
and began to harass the Rangers directly below with rifle fire
and hand grenades. This threat was driven back by BAR gunners
and another concentration of fire from the USS Satterlee.
includes portable rope launchers, DUKW with extension ladders
provided by the London Fire Department...with Lewis MGs mounted.
New 6-6-8 Ranger squads. LCAs, Shore Fire Control Party counters.
Gun Bunker counters. Counters and new AFV Card style play aids
for the destroyers USS Barton, USS Thompson, and HMS Talybont.
New 8-page variant rulebook and a complete campaign game that
takes you from landing, scaling the cliffs, discovering the German
gun battery...through 'backs to the sea' survival of the ferocious
German counter-attacks. The BAR Gunner counters are HERE, as they
should be and said historical hero counters include one dedicated
to William 'L-Rod' Petty, of course! And a counter for Lt. Colonel
Rudder, naturally. If you are ready to step into the heart of
