Nijmegen, May 10th 1940: Little known to many people, it wasn't the Allies who first spotted the importance of the Nijmegen Bridge as an invasion route. The Germans, in May 1940, shattered the front lines using this corner of Germany, that protrudes into Holland, as a springboard to advance to Amsterdam and the Hague. While the campaign was a one sided affair that didn't last long, the brave Dutch Army did put up some fight. [Size medium] Designers Note - this scenario depicts a historical setup and situation, but features stronger resolve for resistance by the Dutch Army. (HINT) Lessons learned in this scenario may provide players with a good training lesson for crossing those key bridges, in the Market-Garden Campaign Game, while a small, weaker force holds the north side of the bridges.
