Highway To The Reich
HIGHWAY TO THE REICH
Highway to the Reich is a tactical simulation of the largest airborne operation in history.
Over 35,000 men belonging to 1st Allied Airborne Army dropped from the skies of Holland.
Their objective: capture and hold a highway.
The result: a salient into German territory that lacked only the last objective, and was thus a tragic defeat.
The 2,000-plus counters detail Brereton's Airborne Corps of three divisions, the units of Brian Horrocks's 30th Corps, and Model's scattered and disheveled forces at company level for infantry; battery level for artillery, anti -tank and anti-air; and troop level for tank and armored cars.
The four maps cover the area from the front along the Meuse-Escaut Canal to the land, nearly 200 hexes away, . . .
