ASL AAR: Le Manoir (13)


The bridge at La Fiere carried the road from Ste. Mere-Eglise across the Merderet River and was the main objective of the 101st Airborne’s 1st Battalion, 505th Regiment.

In March 1944 the Imperial Japanese Army invaded India from neighboring Burma.

We tackle the monster scenario ‘Knock Them Down!’ from LCP’s Steelworks module. We think it played out fairly close to history. The Highlanders were unable to dig out the well fortified Germans, and Tigers showed up early to wreak havoc on the British Shermans.

The date is June 8, just after D-Day. The Canadians occupy a town of mostly stone buildings, spread across one and a half of two boards (10 and 20). The map represents the town of Bretteville L’Orguilleuse outside of Caen.

ASL AAR: Steutzpunkt Vierville (CH4)


One of ASL’s attractions to me is its historical relationship with WW2. I’ve read a lot of books about WW2 and of course, D-Day is one of the big moments in the war. I was able to visit the five beaches of that battle and see lots of artifacts from that time.
