Crete, May 20th 1941: This scenario is loosely based on the plan that was put forward by General der Flieger Alexander Lohr (Commander, Luftflotte IV) who wanted a single concentrated drop to seize the airfield at Maleme, followed by a build up of additional infantry and heavy weapons. Such an approach might risk enable the British to be able to reinforce the island and thus sustaining the defence of the island. While the Axis Air Drops will concentrate on Maleme, units that historical dropped at Rethymnon and Heraklion will reinforce the Prison Valley DZ as well as attempt to block Allied troops from moving from the east side of the island. [Size, medium] Designer Note: This scenario has the eastern DZs moved and a choice of Strategy/Operations for the Allies.

A fun scenario, but very difficult for the FJ, too many losses before they hit the ground.
Me and General McAulliffe decided to move I Company up on the line. That is, if you agree.
