Arnhem - Defiant Stand (1st Edition)

Description

ARNHEM—DEFIANT STAND is a detailed new ATS system game that tells the story of the Battle of Arnhem. This battle was the result of Montgomery’s bold plan to force the Rhine by coup de main using an airborne operation like none seen in the annals of military history. If successful the greatest natural barrier protecting Nazi Germany would be breached—shortening the war dramatically. If it failed, the ‘Red Devils’ of the British 1st Airborne Division would be at the far end of a tenuous supply line, in the midst of enemy territory. Allied planners had failed to take note of two elite Waffen SS divisions resting and refitting following the rucksmarsch, the headlong flight that followed the German collapse in Normandy. This intelligence failure would place John Frost and his men of the 2nd Parachute Battalion in a precarious position in the urban battlefield of Arnhem.
