There are problems with this scenario: it cannot be set-up using the standard terrain tiles of Memoir '44 and the selected extensions. There are too many terrains of one or more types. Please contact the author.

Historical Background:
On the night of 27-28 February 1942, British paratroopers of Company C / 2nd Parachute Battalion were airdropped into German-occupied France near the Channel port of Bruneval. The 120 elite soldiers under the command of Major John Frost stormed a German "Würzburg" radar installation and captured vital information on enemy early-warning technology before retreating to the beach where they were picked up by Royal Navy landing craft.

Briefing:
Axis Player (Germany):
