Big Flames of War D-Day Game... 2011

So trawling through my old photos I found another gem of a big game.  This one was a Flames of War D-Day landings battle which we played in 2011.

It took place over two 12 foot by 4 foot tables. One table represented the beaches and a small town and the other an inland area suitable for airborne landings. Troops could travel off one table onto the other along defined roads.

If I remember right, the allies didn't manage to complete the required objectives in time. The airborne troops suffered from being mis-dropped and under heavy fire and the amphibious landings were stalled by German resistance. After a day's play it was decided that the Axis forces had won victory.
