In Memoriam

History
"Operation Battleaxe (also known as the Battle of Sollum) was a British Army operation in June 1941 with the goal of clearing eastern Cyrenaica of German and Italian forces. In the centre and along the coast were two groups, Coast Force and Escarpment Force. The former was responsible for capturing Halfaya Pass, while the latter was to capture the remainder of the frontier, namely Fort Capuzzo, Musaid and Sollum. At 05:15, Coast Force charged.....

Take part in a head on collision between the German Afrika Corp and the British Army in North Africa in this expansive battle for control of the area between two ports. This level features the use of German and British tanks and is well suited to open armoured combat, with the support of air units, and naval units (if necessary). This map was designed by ArminAce.

FRIDAY , June 3rd, 18hUTC , the map Moerbrugge will be played in the Forgotten Hope 2 Campaign
 
In Memoriam

History
"At 15:30 on 8 September 1944, the three assault companies moved to Oostkamp. Luckily, the "opportunity" to which Major Stockloser had alluded came about in the form of two civilian boats which were discovered by Major Mackenzie, Officer Commanding "D" Company. These boats would eventually ferry all three companies across the canal. Some boats sank during the crossing and heavily laden soldiers were drowned. At 17:30, "D" Company started to cross and soon the Germans responded with 88 mm and mortar fire. Casualties started to mount even before the companies reached the other side. In two hours, "C" Coy would drop in strength from 63 men to just 46. By midnight, all three companies were across and holding a narrow bridgehead on the far side.

Major Mackenzie was wounded and "D" Company was driven back to the canal by German counter-attacks. "C" Company was cut off from the "B" and "D" Companies by German infiltration. The day ended with 5 Argylls killed and 26 wounded.
The 9 September 1944 would see The Lincoln and Welland Regiment cross the canal and take up a position on the right flank of the Argylls. The situation would remain serious throughout the day, with several German counter-attacks launched against the bridgehead.

"C" Company was in a particularly difficult position being cut off from the other companies. In addition, their radios failed leaving them out of contact with all support. However, the company hung on and repulsed all counter-attacks. Company Sergeant Major George Mitchell deserves much credit for holding the defence together. He personally led a party that brought up much needed supplies and ammunition. After the battle, he would be awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal."

FRIDAY , July 1st, 18hUTC , the map Elsenborn Ridge will be played in the Forgotten Hope 2 Campaign
 In Memoriam


History
"The main drive against Elsenborn Ridge was launched in the forests east of Rocherath-Krinkelt on the early morning of 17 December. This attack was begun by tank and panzergrenadier units of 12th SS Panzer Division. 989th Infantry Regiment of 277th succeeded, after heavy and costly combat in the woods, in overrunning the forward American positions guarding the trails to the villages, capturing a large number of prisoners and leaving many small units isolated. By 11:00, this attack had driven units of 99th Infantry Division back into the area of Rocherath-Krinkelt. These units were joined by forces of 2nd Infantry Division moving into the villages from the north. The German attack swiftly bogged down against the heavy small arms and machine gun fire from the prepared positions of 99th Infantry Division on their flanks. The German infantry struggled to make their way through the dense woods and heavy brush in their path.

The German forces also drew a rapid response from American artillery, who had registered the forward positions of their infantry. The artillery fired on the exposed advancing Germans while the American troops remained in their covered foxholes. The troops around the villages were assisted by tanks from 741st Tank Battalion, assisted by a company of 644th Tank Destroyer Battalion equipped with M10 tank destroyers, a company of 612th Tank Destroyer Battalion, and a few towed 3-inch guns from the 801st Tank Destroyer Battalion. They were instrumental in helping hold back the German advance in the fighting in and around Rocherath-Krinkelt.

To the northeast of the 99th Division, the 1st Infantry Division had been recuperating near Liege, from nearly constant combat since it took part in the Normandy landings on 6 June. When the German counterattack broke the division hastily relocated to the unguarded southern end of the 99th's line near BĆ¼tgenbach. Troops from the 1st and 9th Infantry Divisions, moved into position to fortify Elsenborn Ridge and complete the defense. The 9th Division held positions on the northern portion of the ridge, in the vicinity of Kalterherberg."

FRIDAY , July 8th, 18hUTC , the map Battle of Foy will be played in the Forgotten Hope 2 Campaign
 In Memoriam


History
"In 20 December 1944, during the German Ardennes offensive, the 2nd SS Panzer Division Das Reich took the town of Foy from 1st Battalion, US 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, US 101st Airborne Division, suffering heavy losses in the process; 500-1,000 German troops and 30 tanks were lost, while 199 US soldiers and 13 officers were lost. The American paratroopers, including Easy Company, counterattacked on 9 January 1945 with assistance from artillery, and they repelled a counterattack at 4:15 AM on 14 January 1945. The Germans later sent in 14 tanks and a whole battalion to retake the town, and they succeeded. However, the Americans counterattacked at 9:30 AM, and they suffered significant losses due to a lack of cover in the open and snowy fields and during the house-to-house fighting. The Americans were eventually able to retake the town with the help of the US 11th Armored Division, and the Germans were forced back one last time, leaving the town in American hands.
