A pre-campaign taster

Today I fought a wargame of the XXX Corps advance through Valkenswaard towards Eindhoven on 17th September 1944.

This was a play-test of my “tweaked ” tactical rules based on the Memoir 44 game system before embarking on the main campaign which involves 6 generals contributing by e-mail.

The battle takes place about 5 miles south of the main campaign map area, and will determine the initial starting strength of the British Guards Armoured Division for the campaign game.

And so to the battle report:
