  • Description

    Combat Commander: Battle Pack #1 - Paratroops is the first of what will be many themed scenario packs for use with the Combat Commander series of games. The theme of this first Pack is focused on the exploits of American, German and even Russian Airborne forces. CC-Paratroops features eleven new scenarios printed on cardstock, as well as four new maps. Future Battle Packs will be similarly structured and will sometimes include new counters or new cards - with themes such as "Stalingrad", "Maquisards" and "Desert Rats" to name just a few.

    The scenarios included in CC-Paratroops are: 
     

  • "Fields of Fire" and "Fields of Blood" set at Lanzerath, Germany, 16 December 1944 - both morning and afternoon attacks (using a new map #25)
  • "Turnbull Turns 'em" at Neuville-au-Plain, France, 6 June 1944 (using a new map #26)
  • "Carentan Causeway" at Carentan, France, 10 June 1944 (using a new map #27)
  • "No Ingouf Around" at Carentan, France, 11 June 1944 (using a new map #28)
  • "Operation Repulse" at Bastogne, Belgium, 27 December 1944
  • "Red Skies at Night" at Veliki Bukrin Bridgehead, Russia, 25 September 1943
  • "Blizzard Baptism" at Flamierge, Belgium, 4 January 1945
  • "Look Mom, No Tanks!" near Trois Ponts, Belgium, 24 December 1944
  • "We Go!" at St. Mere Eglise, France, 6 June 1944
  • "Encircled at Hill 30" at Caponnet, France, 8 June 1944

    CC Battle Packs are NOT stand-alone games and will require ownership of one or more Combat Commander boxed games in order to be played. CC-Paratroops requires ownership of Combat Commander: Europe.

    Although I haven't yet rec'd the game, I'd like to make the comment on the fact that as I was looking over this product and seeing the first scenario threw me for a loop...until I remembered that the paratroopers involved were a couple of companies from the 9th Regiment, 3rd Fallschirmjager as they faced off against the I&R Platoon, 394th Infantry Regiment, 99th Infantry. I've actually been reading about this very action, and that platoon, in The Longest Winter by Alex Kershaw. It contains an excellent description of the battle at Lanzerath, and, moreover, is simply an excellent read. I would highly recommend it. My anticipation for CC BP1: Paratroops has been greatly increased.
