Audie Murphy's Campaign: 8 new official scenarios! Mon, 20 June 2011 16:43
Today, June 20, is the anniversary of Audie Murphy's birthday , known as Audie Murphy Day in his home state of Texas. Audie Murphy was a brilliant US soldier who fought from Sicily to Germany during WWII, and became the most decorated US soldier of the war.

We invite you to relive the fierce battles that he fought as a member of the 3rd US Infantry Division, from the beaches of Sicily to the snow forests of Germany, with Audie Murphy's Campaign, created by Jacques "jdrommel" David, one of the most important contributors of the Memoir'44 community with more than 200 original scenarios.

8 new original scenarios are waiting for you in this new official campaign!

Enjoy!

The Command Staff at Days of Wonder

He also became an actor and stared in the film of the Red Badge of Courage ACW book.

Thanks again to JD Rommel and DoW for another great free campaign. Vercors is some act to follow! Wink

Another outstanding addition to the games/maps available.

This looks to be very good, so my thanks to Jacques"jdrommel" David and the whole M44 team at the DOW headquarters for allowing us this free access to these scenarios and campaign.

No wonder the "band of Brothers" is getting much larger and more popular. Cool Laughing

"He also became an actor and stared in the film of the Red Badge of Courage ACW book."

His WW2 military exploits were also chronicled in the movie "To Hell and Back" staring none other than Audie Murphy as himself... a great movie worth watching.


Thanks JD for an interesting campiagn...what a neat way to personilize M44 Smile

The "The Quarry of Cleury" scenario lists as conditions of victory:
Allied player 5 Medals.

To win, the Allied player must also capture and hold the Quarry (a Temporary Medal Objective for the Allied player).

What are the conditions of victory for the Axis player?

Presumably the Quarry Temporary Medal Objective must be one of the 5 Allied medals. In similar scenarios you don't win until you gain the required objective, even if you reach the stated number of medals (5 in this case). You keep going until you do.

Yes, it says what the conditions are for the Allies, but what for the Axis player?
(this is a complete quote of all the conditions of victory as written, there is no "Axis player" section)

Presumably the axis just have to get 5 medals. The text may be a bit unclear, but I don't believe there are any official scenarios where the required number of medals is not the same for both players.

In fact there is at least one: Villers-Bocage, included in the Tigers in the snow expansion: battle features 5 tigers vs British Inf and Arm. Axis needs 5 medals, Allied only 3.

5 medals for everyone.
The scenario has been updated according to your remarks (not the PDF, though).

Does that mean the exported file will be different than what is viewed in the scenario???

The Quarry of Cleury:

The Exported PDF File for this scenario does not show any difference as stated.

If you use the Advanced Rules they state that, if the Allies win the San Fratello Line scenario they get to "Place 1 extra armour unit on your baseline" in the Crossing the Vulturno scenario. But the Allied baseline is already full!

I just added an extra armour unit on the second row and have PM'd JDrommel for clarity.

How come no one else has picked this up? Hopefully it's not because people aren't playing. JDrommel's campaigns are excellent! Very Happy

Didn't pick it up cause I won as the Axis in San Fratello.

Answer from JDrommel:

You are totally right, it's a mistake of mine. Yes, you were correct to add the armoured unit on the second row.

It's great to be able to contact the sceanrio author and get a speedy response. Very Happy

Announcements only stay sticky for a little while and then other news comes along...if every piece of news stayed sticky, the whole screen would be taken up with sticky threads! Razz

This Campaign can always be found in the Campaign area. New players will just have to find it on their own! And boy, it'll be a treat when they discover it. Smile

[EDIT] Since original post, DOW has added the scenario scenario, Mignano Monte Lungo (Med Front) to official scenarios.

I found Alpha Yellow could be played online in expert mode as well, but it's not much fun. There's a glitch, which is why they didn't post it too: bunkers on hills don't block line of sight. That wouldn't come up in this scenario very often.

I tried to post The Quarry at Cleury, which has a Required Medal for Allies. I had to change it to 8 medal, with 3 free for Axis. I wrote up my how to, last year at a wikispaces page for the editor-expert mode: Medals.

I tried Quarry of Cleury for awhile and it wasn't well received. So I reserved it for people I've played lots of games with, but that didn't work, either. Someone with whom I played over 20 games may have tried to take advantage of the Sniper-Ambush bug. He set up his tank to attack my Sniper with less dice than for an adjacent infantry unit. Before I realized and dropped the Ambush card, he clicked which forced its play, saying he loved when that happens. I had apologized for making an illegal play, saying I didn't like cheating, but he ended the game saying he'd never play or talk to me again, so we couldn't work out the misunderstanding.

We started an Audie Murphy campaign last year in anticipation of some of these scenarios being in our February tournament, but only got about half way. We finished it this month. I was Allies:

1. The San Fratello Line: Lost
2. Crossing the Volturno: Lost (vs extra Barrage)
3. Mignano Monte Lungo: Won (vs 3 minefields) 54%
4. Cisterna di Littoria: Won (w/2 elite upgrades)
5. Alpha Yellow: Lost (w/Destroyer!)
6. The Quarry of Cleury: Won (vs extra Sniper)
7. Counter-Attack at Holtzwihr: Won (w/extra Barrage)
8. Capture of Biesheim: Won (w/Heroic Leader)

Allies 5W-3L, but it was decided on points after the 7th scenario.

You can download the Audie Murphy book, with bonus campaign rules

There's still not enough After Action Reports to show a good win % for most scenarios. If you play against a person, please post your results!

Note: some of these campaign scenarios can be played in at least 3 ways: as written like a stand-alone scenario, with bonus for Axis winning the previous, with bonus for Allies winning the previous, or variants like replacing Smoke Screens - Actions 21 (1 turn), with Smoke Shells - Actions 31 (2 turns) for scenarios #1 and #2.

I don't post AARs for scenarios played in campaigns because the victory event rolls, reinforcements, etc. distort the actual win % of the scenario alone.

Okay, I admit it, I don't post AARs because I'm lazy, but this is my excuse for campaigns.
