Historical Background:
The largest airborne operation of the war is about to begin. His goal was to cross the Rhine at Arnhem to enter Germany and end the war as quickly as possible.
Three divisions will be parachuted over Holland. The 82nd Airborne Division will be parachuted south of Nijmegen. It will aim to capture the bridges of this city on the Waal as well as the important bridge of Grave on the Maas. The 82nd is to be joined by the Armoured Guards Division of the XXXth Corps which will arrive to the south after its connection with the 101st. It will then have to head north to join the 1st British Airborne Division on Arnhem.

Special Rules:
-Parachuting: At the beginning of the game, the allied player parachutes 10 special units at the hexagons marked with a battle star (see rules parachuting).
-Arrival of the XXXth Corps: This rule is similar to the night rules. At the beginning of each turn, the allied player throws a dice. If he gets a star, he keeps the score in memory. After 4 stars obtained, the XXX Corps arrives in reinforcement from the south. Each subsequent turn, the allied player will be able to make appear a unit of armored vehicles on the South road without having to use a command card (provided the hexagon is free). It thus has in total 6 tanks units in reserve.
