Re: Free France Campaign

About Fezzan : 8) In the French book "L'apport capital de la France dans la victoire des Alliés 14-18/39-45" (= "France's vital contribution to the Allied victory of 14-18/39-45"), written by Dominique Lormier, one can find some interesting information about the first Fezzan campaign (February - Mar...

Re: Free France Campaign

( Mainly ) FEZZAN : 8) [...] I can get the gist that way; same with La Combattante so never mind about that. [...] . . . but a stamp can be worth a thousand words! [...] So. I think we have a scenario in the making here! Two? I don't know. My initial inclination is to have one that shows the action ...

Re: Free France Campaign

8) We have nothing against having a few more scenarios... and it's not necessarily more difficult to prepare (I guess) if there are several "small" ones instead of one big one or even instead of one huge one! :wink:

Re: Free France Campaign

TUNISIA : 8) No thanks, Erik. That map is WAY too large. [...] Ah? :o Well, it seems to me that the surface area of Tunisia is smaller than that of Libya and Lebanon combined. 8) But, indeed, instead of a full Tunisian campaign, why not zooming in on this or that part of the battle? Yes, as you men...

Re: Free France Campaign

:arrow: Or, and I think this option would be even better , alternatively, it could actually comes as TWO scenarios: 8) 1. :idea: One "mini-Mourzouk" scenario as I've suggested before (in an old post)... LRDG (including French) on Chevrolet WB and Willys Jeeps launching a surprise assault against som...

Re: Free France Campaign

:arrow: So, basically, it happened in two phasis, in two campaigns. The first being more a set of raids... and the second and last one being more like a real conquest. :idea: But the scenario, of conquest, can go with some raiding parts, as some recon and, well, both preparatory attacks (against air...

Re: Free France Campaign

Fezzan, Second campaign: 8) The operation is delicate. Leclerc had to cover a thousand kilometers carrying food, ammunition and fuel, and he had to coordinate his advance with the British troops advancing in Cyrenaica. :? Sebha: main military center; Mourzouk: religious capital. :wink: Goal : to dri...

Re: Free France Campaign

By the way, very first small details related to 06BirHakeim . 8) Based on what is at disposal right now, I already see few elements that may be modified, so why waiting to write about it? About the text of the briefing ( in order of apparition ): 1. “1st Division's première brigade” -> “1st Division...

Re: Free France Campaign

Well, as usual I know you're going to browse through all the posts and their content. :D Not too much stress though, building this campaign should remain a pleasure ! :wink: :arrow: I'm still convinced that there are still some relevant elements related to OE ( like the construction group, the handf...

Re: Free France Campaign

A last feedback of mine ( I hope :roll: ) about 05OperationExporter : 8) . . . And I’ve got a Major Victory at the 44th turn out of 60… So, 60 turn seem to be still a little too much ! :o ( And even with an Early Victory module, it means free RPs offered to the Free French... 10 extra turns = almos...

Re: Free France Campaign

A last feedback of mine ( I hope :roll: ) about 05OperationExporter : 8) Despite what I've written before, because the changes are this time rather modest ( replace a Sea Hurricane by a Fulmar, a Free French Gloster Gladiator by its Sea version and change the AI Setup of only one DD ), I made these ...
