Strange Defeat 1940: The Fall of France


"Strange Defeat is a swift playing game based on Germany's 1940 conquest of Western Europe. Despite the powerful Maginot Line fortifications and superiority in both tanks and aircraft, France fell in six weeks. Players move the actual armor and infantry units of Germany, France, Britain, the Netherlands and Belgium. The object is to force France to surrender through loss of key cities or drive the Nazis back over the Rhine. Units are rated for combat strength and movement capability. Cast the iron dice of war and determine he world's future." (from the back of the box)
