Combat Commander: Battle Pack #1 – Paratroopers

Combat Commander: Battle Pack #1 – Paratroopers is the first of what will be many themed collections of scenarios for use with the Combat Commander: Europe series of games. The theme of this first Battle Pack is focused on the exploits of American, German and even Russian Airborne forces. CC–Paratroopers features eleven new scenarios printed on cardstock, as well as four new maps. Future Battle Packs will be similarly structured and may also include new counters or new cards – with themes such as “Stalingrad”, “Partisans” and “Desert Rats” to name just a few.

COMPONENTS:
2 17" x 22" 2-sided color mapsheets
6 2-sided Scenario Cards

The scenarios included in CC–Paratroopers are:

  • “Fields of Fire” and “Fields of Blood” set at Lanzerath, Germany, 16 December 1944 – both the morning and the afternoon attacks (using a new map #25);
  • “Turnbull Turns ‘em” at Neuville-au-Plain, France, 6 June 1944 (using a new map #26);
