    North of Brécourt Manor, Normandy, 6 June 1944 0830 Hours: After linking up with his parent unit at the hamlet of Le Grand Chemin on the morning of June 6, 1944, 1st Lieutenant Richard Winters was ordered up front away from his company. With minimal instructions and no briefing, Winters found himself tasked to destroy a German artillery battery. The battery had initially been reported to be 88 mm guns firing onto causeway exit #2 leading off Utah Beach thereby disrupting the advance of the U.S. 4th Infantry Division inland on this route. It turned out to be four 105’s, with support elements nearby. Several other units had stumbled into the enemy position earlier in the morning and had been repulsed. Winters collected a team of thirteen men from his own and other companies and developed a quick plan of attack. He positioned a pair of M1919 .30 caliber machine guns to serve as a base of fire and sent several soldiers (2nd Lt. Lynn D. Compton, Sgt. Joseph D. Toye, and Sgt. William J. Guarnere) to one flank to destroy a machine gun position with grenades and provide covering fire. Sgt. C. Carwood Lipton climbed a tree, which exposed him to enemy fire but provided an excellent view of the enemy. He opened fire, but return fire caused him to return rapidly to the ground. Winters then led an attack down the hedgerow leading to the first gun position. After the four guns were disabled, Winters’ team was low on ammunition and withdrew.

    We heard what you wanted and here it is AND then some. The DELUXE experience for ASLers is long dead. Or was. With the entire line getting the love it needs (read: the retro graphics that make you feel 'Hill 621-ish' all over again, color-touched scenarios, the counter art you crave) there is exactly zero reasons NOT to do fun and unique things with the resulting games, maps, and more. To that end, we bring you Brecourt Manor/Strass DELUXE- 2 modules in total, which brings you 6 scenarios in a new printing to play on the LARGEST-hexed map in the history of the system > that means a 2.25" hex that is LARGER than the former DELUXE hexes were .... a true no-stacking experience, plus terrain art you will love. PLUS, while you need modules bringing you Americans and Germans, as well as the ASLRB, you also get a copy of the second printing of the BoB Normandy counter sheet.

    NOTE: THIS IS A VERY LIMITED PRINT RUN and as long as you see the page you can reserve your copy. This module ships the week of March 1, 2016.
