The Battle for Normandy is a game that represents the climactic campaign in Normandy from D-Day, 6 June 1944 to the first week of August 1944 at primarily battalion level. Numerous scenarios are included to play out various smaller battles in Normandy. It is intended for two players or player teams.

The game uses a unique sequence of play and a system of fire combat throughout the airdrop and beach assault phases with company-level breakdown units, then a more traditional odds-type combat approach throughout the rest of the game. Initial beach defense deployments at start and daily air support and defense allocations, hidden to the opposing player; create a level of uncertainty that makes for a tense, challenging duel.

The game combines a detailed, extensively researched order of battle with relatively fast-playing game mechanics to make it not only the largest representation of the Normandy campaign available to date, but a manageable one that is meant to be played, not shelved. Scenarios include ‘Bloody Omaha’, ‘Operation Epsom’, ‘Cobra’, ‘The Fight for Cherbourg’ and more.

An expansion, fittingly titled The Battle for Normandy Expansion, extends the play area south, to include the Mortain and Falaise scenarios, and extends the campaign to late August and the 3rd Army breakout.

Comments: Normandy continues its slow upward movement.

This is a very playable monster and fairly straightforward to solo. Space required is extremely large, but there is a very good VASSAL module out there, which I've used to solo this twice. Once you get through the paratroop landing and initial beach invasion, the rules allow you to clip along at a pretty good pace.

This is currently out of print, but the secondary market prices are not terrible, and the expansion is still available from GMT.

Comments: Normandy takes another small step back. It was tracking very closely with Twilight in the East for some time, so I'm not sure why it's suddenly fallen behind.

Also includes the Battle for Normandy expansion.

The game is mostly punched and clipped. I ran of energy then realized I would probably never play the game. Plus just about everyone in my group already owns the game.

Numerous scenarios are included to play out various smaller battles in Normandy. It is intended for two players or player teams.

The game uses a unique sequence of play and a system of fire combat throughout the airdrop and beach assault phases with company-level breakdown units, then a more traditional odds-type combat approach throughout the rest of the game. Initial beach defense deployments at start and daily air support and defense allocations, hidden to the opposing player; create a level of uncertainty that makes for a tense, challenging duel.

The game combines a detailed, extensively researched order of battle with relatively fast-playing game mechanics to make it not only the largest representation of the Normandy campaign available to date, but a manageable one that is meant to be played, not shelved. Scenarios include ‘Bloody Omaha’, ‘Operation Epsom’, ‘Cobra’, ‘The Fight for Cherbourg’ and more.

An expansion, fittingly titled The Battle for Normandy Expansion, extends the play area south, to include the Mortain and Falaise scenarios, and extends the campaign to late August and the 3rd Army breakout.

Comments: While it was overtaken by A Distant Plain as the strongest of the new additions, this monster is keeping a respectable pace up.

My erstwhile allies were not in attendance on the night of the invasion so it all fell to me. That of course was a recipe for disaster. The airborne lost 15 steps but grouped pretty well and are in decent shape. British 6th Abn hold the Orne River/Canal bridge for now. The beach landing were pretty much ineffective across the board in the first phase, which was all we completed. Hopefully my allies show up next week and roll better.

Dan and I are the most experienced at this game, with several plays under our belts. The other 4 this is their first play of the game.

In addition to this multi-player game, I am also playing with Dan. We are on June 11th I believe. Jonathan and I started a 2-player game while waiting for the multi-player to start. We are on the June 6 PM turn. In all three games I am the Allies.

So, you think I like this game much?...

The Battle for Normandy is a game that represents the climactic campaign in Normandy from D-Day, 6 June 1944 to the first week of August 1944 at primarily battalion level. Numerous scenarios are included to play out various smaller battles in Normandy. It is intended for two players or player teams.

The game uses a unique sequence of play and a system of fire combat throughout the airdrop and beach assault phases with company-level breakdown units, then a more traditional odds-type combat approach throughout the rest of the game. Initial beach defense deployments at start and daily air support and defense allocations, hidden to the opposing player; create a level of uncertainty that makes for a tense, challenging duel.

The game combines a detailed, extensively researched order of battle with relatively fast-playing game mechanics to make it not only the largest representation of the Normandy campaign available to date, but a manageable one that is meant to be played, not shelved. Scenarios include ‘Bloody Omaha’, ‘Operation Epsom’, ‘Cobra’, ‘The Fight for Cherbourg’ and more.

An expansion, fittingly titled The Battle for Normandy Expansion, extends the play area south, to include the Mortain and Falaise scenarios, and extends the campaign to late August and the 3rd Army breakout.

Comments: This monster game bursts out the gate with the fastest growth of any of the new additions. This isn't too surprising; high prices on the Marketplace indicate this is a sought-after title, and the expansion likely drew attention as well.
