Hell's Highway: Operation Market Garden, Holland 1944 [BOX SET]
CONTENTS:

"HELL'S HIGHWAY is an operational level simulation of the greatest airborne campaign of World War II. In September of 1944, three Allied airborne divisions dropped up to 60 miles behind German lines in Holland to seize and hold a series of roads and bridges until British ground forces could break through the front lines to link up with the sky soldiers —to create an open road to the heart of the Third Reich. Until now, the tragic yet fascinating story of Market-Garden has not been simulated on a level that allows an appreciation of the entire campaign, without bogging down in endless detail. In HELL'S HIGHWAY, players trace the leaden movement of XXX Corps along its jammed highway, drop the gallant paratroopers on the key bridges, and launch the unexpected panzers against the grim Arnhem defenders. Three scenarios and numerous deployment options allow players to explore the battle with historical hindsight, or to experience first-hand the confusion of those bloody days.

Hell's Highway presents a multi-dimensional lessen in World War II planning and execution, embodied in a fresh and playable game system featuring:

* Maneuver: Travel mode, combat mode, motorized exploitation, evacuation, and German reserve movement.
* Combat: Separate offensive and defensive fire, target differentiation, close assault, artillery, and entrenchments.
* Logistics: Headquarters, division and command organization, supply points, disruption, depletion, isolation, and air resupply.
* Air Power: Air strikes, interdiction, weather, and airlandings.
* Special Rules: German surrender, bridge demolition, city defense, cross-river assaults, and ferry crossings.
* Special Unit Capabilities: Heavy weapons, anti-tank support, combat engineers, bridge engineers, flak, ranged fire."
