Details without spoilers? Well...

I've drummed multiple ideas about this battle for a long, long time. Operations cannot accurately represent what happened to the Brits on the northern approaches to the bridge (as I see it).

I decided to take Frost's final day. Not try to estimate which buildings were rubble, which units had ammo, or who was alive, beyond-which the excellent source's clear statements.

I plugged in: who and where, as far as the Brits, and built a group of continually escalating German units.

Test it. Play it by email against human opponets and give me feedback.

I looked at the "player ratings" and my scenario obviously NEEDS ALOT OF WORK.

For those who have tested it-- please post some input.

I have some ideas to better fit the action into "game terms," and feel the Germna forces need increased in size etc.

Advice please.
