In 32 pages, this new full-color booklet in A5 format for Rapid Fire provides scenarios for the four most important landings of Operation Mercury: the invasion of Crete by German fallschirmjager on 20th May 1941.

Crete: The Airborne Assault

Against alert New Zealand, Australian, British and Greek defenders, the parachute and glider assaults on Maleme, Prison Valley (east of Maleme), Retimo, and Heraklion were close-fought battles that hung in the balance.

Capturing the uncertainty of the real thing, these carefully researched scenarios are designed to be played with our Reloaded and Reloaded Extra rules (or RF2, if players prefer), and include historical backgrounds, full graphic orbats, battle maps, and special rules.

Available from the Rapid Fire website for £9.00 GBP plus P&P.
