Designer: Don Greenwood
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
In the confusion of the scattered air drop of the 101st Airborne, Lt. Colonel Vandervoort was ordered to turn his 2nd Battalion towards the already-taken village of Ste. Mere-Eglise and abandon his initial objective – a blocking position astride Route 13 to the north. Hedging his bets, he sent a platoon to organize a roadblock in Neuville. The platoon beat a strong German column to the Neuville by only 20 minutes. The much larger German force, consisting mainly of the 1058th Grenadier Regiment of the 91st Infantry Division, counterattacked and half of the defenders were killed or wounded in a heavy 8 hour battle. Eventually two of the American defenders, Sergeant Robert Niland and Corporal James Kelly, volunteered to remain behind. They held the German force off long enough for the rest to escape before both were killed.

2016-11-08(A) Martí Cabré vs Andy Beaton German winGermans advanced steadily. I lost one vehicle to the AT but my fire broke the Americans every turn. Advancing slowly but forward each turn I managed to get a good hold in the town and be in position to exit the units with 3 turns to go so the Americans conceded.
2016-02-05(A) Kermit Mullins vs Scott Waites American win4 turns down and my Germans are finally within range of the US Paras. The US 9-2 and MMG are devastating...but so far it's broken twice which gave me a good chance to sprint forward. We'll see what happens next.
2015-10-01(A) Stephen Stewart vs Jeff Buser German winEntering from one hex is old school... Great fighting as the Germans can't bring all units to bear on the Americans. I took my Tanks and bypassed Board 24 and met the Reinforcements coming on....Allowing the Reinforcements to enter the town is Death to the Germans. Fun Game...
2015-01-22(A) Russell Dewhurst vs Daniel Soukup American win
2013-09-24(A) Jeff B vs Ted Wilcox German winThis one borders on "dog" as the Americans were quickly killed or rounded up and their reinforcements never showed.
