A Megagame of the Famous ‘Bridge Too Far’
The battles in the Netherlands in September 1944, known by the Allies as Operation Market Garden.
Can you take and hold the bridge?
Possibly the most written about military campaign ever, OPERATION MARKET GARDEN has been the subject of hundreds of books, two feature films, dozens of computer games and board games, and the “80% Successful” operation has been the object of endless discussion among armchair generals over the last 70-plus years.
Players take command of the divisions and corps involved in this part of the operation and refight the battle to control the crucial bridges at Arnhem.
Of course, as with many famous battles, historians disagree on a range of fundamental issues – myths grow up and are exploded, only to be rediscovered later.
This game is a distillation of myth, opinion and established fact that reflects one view of the battle.
So this is not a re-enactment – the game will not go as it did historically, players get the opportunity to be innovative and explore some important 'what-if' questions and at the same time the game really brings out the real-life challenges and dilemmas faced at the time.
