Description

Please note that in 2013 Critical Hit started producing products with 12" x 18" cardstock maps. This ASL product will contain this new style of map.

Outside Carentan, France, 13 June 1944: The attack of the 101st Airborne Division on June 13th happened to coincide with the violent enemy reaction to being thrown out of Carentan. Soldiers of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment started forward but soon found themselves intermingled with German columns, including tanks and Fallschirmjägers from the 6th Parachute Regiment. The 506th found itself in the toughest spot it had ever been in and thoughts of attack soon shifted to efforts to improvise a defense. Reports of heavy casualties began coming in from the companies, and despite reinforcements from 2nd Battalion, 502nd PIR coming in from the right flank, the force of enemy paratroops and Panzers soon proved too much and the 506th was forced back, almost into Carentan itself.

It's back, and in an all new map format that continues the new FLAT BOARD SERIES ... a first in the history of the hobby. CH continues the D-DAY and beyond coverage with gusto with an historical map-based rendition in the form of Action at Carentan II. You receive a collection of scenarios, all tweaked for a new play experience and set on the new 2-part 18" √ó 22" map that uses the hard-board presentation that we know you are going to love for its crispness and durability. A FREE BONUS SHEET of 101st MMC counters is added to each copy from the new Brecourt sheet of color die-cut counters for use with Carentan.
