Codeword Cromwell is a military boardgame simulation based on a German armed forces invasion of England in the summer of 1940. It was produced by the Combined Forces Military College in Greenwich, and is used to train officers of the Combined Defense Force that was established following the cessation of hostilities in March, 1941. This simulation does not reproduce the entire invasion but instead concentrates on a single action, the Famous “Battle of Kirkham Stokes,” in which a small group of civilians, Home Guard irregular forces and Regular British soldiers defended the strategically vital Sussex village against advance elements of the German invasion force.
