On that same webpage is also a reference to the bruneval raid, which could make for an interesting mission as well. First drop for Frost and his man, to capture axis parts of their radar equipment. Raid was very successful; they brought back the parts (although some sources say not all the right one...

great work

Hi Amaris, I am a fan of your missions, played them several times. I do agree with the comments on Pegasus Bridge regarding the strength of the Germans. Could be a bit tougher. HAve you considered the reinforcing Lord Lovat joining the para's at a later stage (or maybe Pegasus Bridge part 2 using th...

HI Amaris,

Have you considered doing a follow up on Pegasus Bridge to reinforce the men at the bridge with Lovat's commando's? Since you are doibg a themed special operations campaign that could be quite suitable and the map is already there ;-)

just a thought

Personally I think this game shares some qualities the Combat Mission series had; very refined variables but hidden under the bonnet. This may confuse players since they may be thrown of the hook by the devious simple looks of the game. Personally, I love this to bits. Cunning mechanics and simple r...

Thanks for your excellent work. I thoroughly enjoyed Pegasus Bridge. This one is another blast. Bloody fight though. I saw a video with an interview with Lt col Otway who lead the attack on the battery. After landing he was devoid of most men and equipment and had to attack with only a handful of me...

Good mission! Been to the bridge this summer so its fresh in memory. I agree with some of the comments after several rounds of play. It is well balanced. To leave the second mortar behind feels a bit weird. And the scenario could sure enough use a piat. Especially on the counterattack of the germans...

With the arrival of the para's market garden is imo an ideal story to portray; The drop at arnhem; the isolated para's of Frost at the bridge while the others try to reach them through the city; The americans struggling to capture nijmegen bridge; XXX corps rushing over a narrow road towards arnhem ...

The lock removal eases on some frustration but I do miss a progress indication and now I doubt whether I have done a mission, or actually finished it.... that is a pity. I find the AI bit of the editor also confusing; making landscape and placing units is fine, but after that... wich it would be a b...

We are aiming to make it our first in-house Mac title. Hopefully it will not throw up too many tricky issues! Cheers Pip Just bought the game and I am smacked by its design, subtlety and quality. Just had a holiday in Normandy visiting all sites and musea and reading many books; every real story pl...
