A few Thursdays ago, Rick put on a game of Combat Commander. The scenario was the Ranger raid on Point Du Hoc.
The initial German positions. Rick was the Germans.
The final reckoning. The Rangers managed to take two of the five bunkers. So it was a German victory.
The game was a fitting tribute to the bravery of all who took part. It demonstrated just how difficult it was to achieve their objectives and puts their success into perspective.
