Another one of my France 1940 scenarios, this one from Volume II dealing with the BEF. In this battle the British 1st Armoured Division probes German reconnaissance troops defending bridges on the Somme. Full write up at: link

Your post is great to see, great to read. It's inspiring!

It's all there to see and a great encouragement to game battles based on your method.

Thanks for sharing.

Fun and interesting report. Good stuff.

Impressed with your scratch-built vehicles.

Great AAR and another vote for those great scratch-built trucks!

Excellent looking game and AAR. The swamp looks good and the stone walls very real.
Would your scenario books be compatible to Rapid Fire rules?

Thanks for your encouraging comments team. The scenarios are designed for Command Decision, which uses a one stand = one platoon scale ratio. Looking over my copy of Rapid Fire I think they would be easily compatible. Command Decision uses a 30 minute turn and is 1:2000 ground scale (5cm = 100m). Either way, the scenarios include a historical map, historical situation and historical forces, all the ingredients you need for a scenario. A little more detail is at link
