Description Edit | History

Combat Commander: Battle Pack #3 -- Normandy is the third themed collection of scenarios for use with the Combat Commander: Europe series of games. The theme of this third Battle Pack shifts to the West Front in June, July and August 1944 as various Allied forces landed on French soil to fight the occupying German forces. CC: Normandy features seventeen new scenarios printed on cardstock -- one of which is a multi-scenario Campaign Game -- as well as eight new maps, added markers necessary for some of the scenarios, and a new feature to the series: a majority of the leader counters represent historical individuals who actually fought in the depicted actions.


Four 17"x22" 2-sided, full-color maps
Nine 8.5"x11" 2-sided Scenario Cards
176 die-cut counters
12-page color Play Book

Rules relevant to the characteristic fighting on the invasion beaches and inland bocage are included.

-- Rural Roads and Bocage;
-- Limited Smoke Barrage;
-- Mortar Spotters;
-- Invasion Terrain (Beach, Shingle, Water Barrier, Communication Trench, Hedgehog)

-- and Night.

Additional special scenario and campaign rules cover well-known individual features of the fighting such as Widerstandsnests, Casemates, Coastal Batteries, Commando Movement, Cliff Scaling, Bocage Clearing Doctrine, Pre-Registered Mortar Batteries, Armor Support and Air Superiority.

The maps depict specific locations in Normandy: Pegasus Bridge, Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach (one directly on the beach at Widerstandsnest 61 and two on the bluffs above the beach, one on the western cliffs and the other on the eastern flank heading towards Cabourg), the villages of Crisbecq and La Madeleine, and finally Sword Beach (at La Brèche d’Hermanville).

-- and the "29, Let’s Go!" multi-scenario Campaign Game recreating eight days (11 July through 18 July 1944) of the 116th Regiment of the 29th Infantry Division’s assault on St. Lô; players are encouraged to see whether they can push the 116th Regiment to reach La Madeleine by 15 July (to match the historical scenario above).

4 MHAB 03 First Fratricide of French Fraturnity
Not Normandy, per se. But you do need the pieces to play this scenario. The Battle of Gabon or the Battle of Libreville was part of the fighting in French West Africa that occurred in November 1940 as part of World War II. The battle resulted in the Free French Forces under General Charles de Gaulle taking Libreville, Gabon, and taking all of French Equatorial Africa from Vichy French forces.
5 MHAB 001 Forged in Fire
...Another scenario that has had minimal testing. Please feel free to send your comments to improve the balance. This scenario is meant to depict the first days of the first integrated American units. Previously, most of the men, who were newly assigned to the front lines, were previously cooks and other support roles. They now volunteered to finally be allowed to fight for the country they so loved. I hope you find that this scenario honors them and how fast they truly became a force in the field. This was the primary inspiration for this scenario, though I did find more mundane statistical sights that also helped me. http://www.historynet.com/african-american-platoons-in-world-war-ii.htm
5 CC: Pack de Batalla #3- Normandía_Reglas_castellano
He corregido la "ausencia" del punto C1.4, que en la maquetación había "desaparecido". Ha habido suerte y como es un punto muy breve, sólo un par de lineas, ha cabido en esa página sin alterar el texto de las demás. Así que os sirve con imprimir esa hoja sólo para corregirlo.. Actualizado a la version 1.14
