Michael, wonderful concept and AAR. Animals and civilians are spectacular adds. The ragtag nature of the Dutch is an interesting aspect of the game. Nice layout and pics as usual. Thanks for posting.

Some years back we played a withdrawing German column moving to cross one bridge with an American recon-in-force racing to another bridge, farther down the canal, in order to manuever into position to interdict the Germans. No available air assets and the Americans had limited indirect fire support. The Germans had a two turn headstart and terrain prevented the Americans from interdicting the Germans with Direct Fire until the GIs had crossed to the bridge to the other side of the canal. Start points to bridges was about the same distance.

One of the most fun, and most challenging, scenarios I've ever played.
