The 1934 Nouveau Petit Larousse defined bocage as 'a bosquet, a little wood, an agreeably shady wood'.

So what could be more enjoyable then spending time in the Norman countryside, on a glorious summers day, taking time to rest, explore and sample the local cidar.

Very good portrayal of the difficulty of Bocage fighting for the US Army.

This is a good game and a good introduction to bocage fighting. It provides a good opportunity to learn tactics for both sides and is enjoyable to boot

Though figting in the bocage and probably a pretty accurate description of what the allies had to deal with in Normandy.

All in one an enjoyable scenario which can be won be either side.
