Coast of France June 6, 1944

3rd Division command

As the Ivy division prepares for their assault on Utah, there command looks out over the beaches to the land beyond. A flat tableland like terrain dotted with few trees and cover. Good for them to see the defenders but bad that there is no cover. They will have to make it off the beaches as fast as they can.

Welcome to the CONSIMWORLD Social Website, Alan!  I too love PanzerGrenadier; it's the best platoon-level tactical system going, despite some pretty decent competition (NATIONS AT WAR series and PANZERBLITZ: HILL OF DEATH).  Which American Civil War series do you play?  Great Battles or Great Campaigns?
