About Combat Mission Battle for Normandy: "Market
How far is this bridge?
Combat Mission: Market Garden depicts allied Field
Marshall Bernard Montgomery's September 1944 dash across Holland in
a daring gambit to leap the Rhine river and enter the heartland of
Fielding U.S., British and Polish forces, Operation Market
Garden was meant to be the lightning stroke which would end the war
that year. It included the largest airborne operation seen to that
day or since.
Market Garden ended in tragedy, though, when the allies failed
to capture their final objective, the Rhine river bridge at Arnhem.
It was, in the famous words of Lt. General Fredrick "Boy" Browning,
a bridge too far.
CM: Market Garden allows the player to recreate Monty's
desperate struggles to reach and cross the Rhine in Holland. It is
an expansion module to Combat Mission: Battle for Normandy and
requires the base game in order to play, upgraded to 2.0! No other
modules are required.
New, larger bridges!
For the first time, CM:Market Garden offers detailed,
historical, to-scale models of the bridges involved in the Market
Arnhem railroad bridge
Along with generic large bridges for creating your own
New urban buildings, modeled after buildings near the
Arnhem and Nijmegen bridges; and windmills!
New map tools!
New editor elevation tools, and a new terrain type: dirt
Ranging from tiny to huge and with a varied mix of forces,
14+ standalone scenarios focus on the new units, weapons and
vehicles found in the module.
The 7 "master maps" are huge maps, historically accurate,
detailed and thoroughly researched, depicting the main areas around
the bridges where most of the fighting happened:
Arnhem Road Bridge
Oosterhout ( north of Nijmegen)
These master maps will help scenario designers in creating
their own scenarios without the burden of having to create the maps
from scratch. The maps can be cut to encompass smaller areas for
Two Campaigns: Allied and German
