The scenarios in this pack feature three units from Manitoba and a sampling of actions in which they participated from the Normandy landings to the end of the war. Three of the scenarios include the Royal Winnipeg Rifles, nicknamed the “Little Black Devils” in 1885 for their prowess at the Battle of Fish Creek during the Northwest Rebellion. One of three battalions comprising the 7th Infantry Brigade of the 3rd Infantry division, the Rifles formed part of the D-Day invasion force. The tanks that were to support them were delayed and the Rifles suffered significant casualties on D-Day as a result. Once the tanks arrived, the Rifles pushed inland further than expected.
