On 6 June 1944 the greatest Armada the World has ever seen approached northern France. That Fleet consisted of more than 5.300 Ships carrying over 300.000 Men and 50.000 Vehicles. Opposing them was Germany’s Veteran Wehrmacht.
Atlantic Wall: D-Day to Falaise is a Grand-tactical Simulation of that Campaign. The Counters represent almost every Formation that participated at the Company and Battalion Level. Infantry, Armor, Anti-tank, Reconnaissance, Engineer, Assault Gun, Howitzer, Rocket, Parachute, Ranger, Commando, Glider and Headquarter Units are fully represented. Features include Widerstandnesten (resistance nests), Cherbourg’s Fortifications and the all-important Bocage. The Map portrays all primary and secondary roads, trails and other types of terrain, along with the Villages, Towns and Cities that formed the bastions of German Defense. As always with this Series, the Orders of Battle have been extensively researched to provide an accurate and functional depiction of the Armies of both sides.
There are 3 Introductory one-Map Scenarios depicting critical periods in the Campaign that use an abbreviated Set of Rules while still maintaining the historical accuracy of the Campaign Game as a whole. In addition, there are 3 Larger multi-Map Scenarios that allow Players to either play a short period within the overall Campaign or play the Campaign from various Starting Points. The 6 June Assault is covered in 2 Modules, the Airborne Assault Module and the Amphibious Assault Module, which allow Players to recreate both the Airborne and initial Amphibious Assault Stage of the Campaign. The Amphibious Assault Module is played on a special Beach Display that shows each sub-area of the Invasion Beaches with Units depicted at the Company Level. It can be played as a Solitaire Scenario. The Campaign Game can be played from 6 June to 22 August, with a total of 234 Game Turns.
