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:
Not a strategic objective of the Falklands campaign. However an early and successful attack on something was ordered to keep the momentum up as the landings in San Carlos water coming under heavy air-attack and the build up for the main offensive was taking time.

Goose Green was that early target, the Parachute Regiment were called upon to take it.

All British infantry are elite and have Gung Ho (limited version that does not activate an extra unit on recons)

Night Attack rules are in effect - this battle started at 0230 in the Southern Hemisphere winter

The Argentinians have the benefit of Blitz (Pucarás from Port Stanley)

The Anti-Tank guns in Goose Green and the adjacent artillery are designed to represent the 35 and 20mm anti-aircraft guns that were used as close support in the later stages of the battle, if Machine Guns were implemented I would use those.

The British sniper on their extreme left is an SAS observation post, this unit cannot advance across the water but can provide supporting fire

Mines are unfriendly to both sides.

For some reason DOW has not seen fit to add Argentina to the list of supported nations, so for the purpose of this scenario they are implemented as Italians in honor of the many Argentinians of Italian extraction. This has no game effect.

The one unit with an Italian flag is from 25th "Special" Infantry Regiment, this unit is elite

Conditions of Victory:
Darwin and the airfield are one medal for the British

Goose Green is one medal for each side.

Please note that this scenario was not approved by Richard Borg or Days of Wonder, so you have to check yourself about playability, potential gaming issues, etc.
