Operation Husky (Commonwealth)

Recommended Posts

It says in the GL description (on the homepage) that a commonwealth campaign was included for their side of operation Husky. Was it not included after all or am I totally blind and just overlooked it.

You might want to reread that page. It doesn't include the phrase "commonwealth campaign". It says that the Commonwealth side are represented in "stunning detail". Sadly, in regards to "Husky," that is confined to stand alone battles, and the Fallschirmjager campaign where you are playing against the British.

Dang it, I was hoping that was not the case. Thanks for the clarification.

I've just begun the first mission. A beach landing on a great looking map. Wish my men luck.

The landing is a real b**ch., what is best.. lying low until reinforcements arrive ?

Very true, it is a real beach, with lots of gullies between the dunes to move through. I went for attacking down the left flank, using my Brens for suppression, then adding the MMG's and Mortars to the mix as they came ashore, rather than wait for the tanks and naval guns. I only swung right after the naval bombardment was over.

I so love the setting of this. Since parts of Op Husky left from Maltese shores . Thanks for the tips. 
once - years ago - there was an attempt to make a what if scenario - for Op Herkules ! For CMFI.

In my opinion, this is a great little campaign - with one flaw. 

The maps and scenarios are very well made, but unfortunately I think the briefings are a bit sloppy: Not enough info on when reinforcement are arriving - or even where. In the last scenario you dont know at which end of the map the reinforcements will arrive.

That is a real pity as everything else is so well made.

I agree with you that a bit more info would be nice.With regards the timing of reinforcements, perhaps the designer is trying to reflect the actual uncertain nature of the invasion itself. As for where your reinforcements will arrive, you need a very good memory of the previous two battles.

I'll add some more thoughts once I finish the fight.
