More info about The Battle for Normandy - GMT Games

Numerous scenarios are included to play out various smaller battles in Normandy. It is intended for two players or player teams.   The game uses a unique sequence of play and a system of fire combat throughout the airdrop and beach assault phases with company-level breakdown units, then a more traditional odds-type combat approach throughout the rest of the game. Initial beach defense deployments at start and daily air support and defense allocations, hidden to the opposing player; create a level of uncertainty that makes for a tense, challenging duel.   The game combines a detailed, extensively researched order of battle with relatively fast-playing game mechanics to make it not only the largest representation of the Normandy campaign available to date, but a manageable one that is meant to be played, not shelved. Scenarios include: (As of March 11, 2008 - we are working on a couple more):

  • Campaign : 5 maps, 6 June - 10 Aug
  • Bloody Omaha : part of one map, 6 June - 10 June
  • Cobra : 2 maps (most of play on one though), 25 July - 31 July
  • Goodwood & Cobra (combined): 4 maps, 18 July - 31 July
  • Operation Epsom : 1 map, 26 June - 1 July
  • The Battle for Cherbourg : 1 map, 18 June - 27 June

A future expansion will extend the play area south, to include the Mortain and Falaise scenarios, and extend the campaign to late August and the 3rd Army breakout.    Game Equipment
