Jort, 30 km NE Falaise, France [best played H2H]. Failure of the operation "Luttich" left German troops in danger of encirclement in Normady with American troops swinging around German left flank and advancing towards Argentan, where they were supposed to meet Canadian II Corps closing the gap from the north. In mid August Falaise was still out of reach and Gen Simmonds, commander of the II Canadian Corps realized that in order to cut off German retreat routes, the barier must be laid farther to the east. He released his reserve: 1st Polish Armd Division and ordered it to cross the Dives River and advance as fast as possible towards Chambois and meet Americans there. In meantime German Kampfgruppe "Virzig" was moving north to support 85th Inf Div holding the river defences. Polish 10th Mounted Rifles Rgt under Maj Maciejowski supported by Dragoon Rgt was ordered to move in the first echelon of Polish Division. In the final briefing before the action, Gen Maczek, division commander said: "Major, find me a ford!".

This is the H2H version of the Crossing the Dives River. The original greatly favored the axis, but the new H2H version gives both sides equal opportunity. MUCH better now.
Resolve then, that on this very ground, with small flags waving and tinny blast on tiny trumpets, we shall meet the enemy, and not only may he be ours, he may be us. --Walt Kelly
