le Hamel, West of Caen: June 11th, 1944. (Scenario Size: Regiment+. Head to Head or Human vs AI for either side) This scenario combines 0611_01 & 0611_02. The Germans were desperately trying to hold on to a small salient as the base for a Panzer counter attack to the coast. The British and Canadians were just as desperate to expand the beachhead and be rid of the salient. Two battalions of the Green Howards with armor support from the 4th/7th Royal Dragoon Guards were tasked to take Cristot and Brouay, just to the east of them the Canadians kicked of their attempt to take Le Mesnil-Patry a few hours later.
