Briefing:
After having gobbled up Poland, the Wehrmacht’s appetite was not yet satiated. Having sampled vodka-soaked Polish appetizers, France would be a delightful main course. Yes, except that the French army was closer to a soufflé than a hearty meal. And while they were drying their briefs on the Maginot line, the panzers just rolled over them. Onwards to Paris for a little goose-stepping parade on the Champs Élysées. After France’s general collapse, De Gaulle (simply called Charlie at that time) was mandated to defend as cleverly as possible, while the French military staff tried to get a beginning of a start on finding a way out of their mess. Mister Van Tall, then colonel of the 507th tin-cans regiment, was ready to let himself be cut into ribbons along the front in a desperate attempt to delay the panzers sent by the voracious Berliners. And by the way, this would be no easy task. No less than the Schnurrbart (mustache) division, Hugo Boss specials commanded by the Oberschtrumpführervondiesegrossemütter Friederich Von Plump (gangling). Enough to make Charlie’s head explode, who would in fact prefer French horizon blue uniforms over German dark black.
Scenario created by Didji and translated by Grougnaffe and Deepnet.

Conditions of Victory:
8 medals
6 command cards
Axis plays first
The exit is for the Axis troops
The village in the center of the board is a temporary objective medal for both sides. Therefore the French start with one medal.
NOTE!!! Any of the river’s hexes and the pont's hexe are a temporary medal for the Allies, including the two villages hexagons situated on the left-hand side of the Allies as it is considered that they are crossed by the river.
NOTE!!! Any of the hexes that are located on the right side of the river are a temporary medal for the Allies. The right bank is situated on the Axis side.
NOTE!!! If Allies troops are on several of these special hexes, you will just gain one temporary objective medal.

Special Rules:
French tank units can move only two hexes.
The river can be crossed.
The bridge's hexe is like a road for movement.
The air attack card is replaced with artillery bombard.
