Battle of Le Havre, 10 September 1944: Though more than 10,000 Germans occupied the Le Havre
fortress, only a fraction of these could contribute to defense. Most were "useless mouths" - unarmed
naval personnel and various demoralized stragglers - and therefore the defense effectively consisted
of just seven fighting battalions. Making matters worse, most of Wildermuth's artillery was pointed
to the sea in fixed fortifications. Against two complete infantry divisions, four tank battalions, and
more than 300 artillery pieces, the German position was hopeless...
[Size: Small]
Design Note: Most of the British force remains fixed on Turn 1. It is suggested that the Allied player
use this turn to bombard the perimeter and coastal defenses with the RAF bombers at his disposal.

It´s probably a one sided affair if the Allied commander is not below average here, but it´s fun nevertheless. Not many similar scenarios can be found in the series.
