Memoir ’44 Vercors Campaign – Free!

Monday, November 9th, 2009

West of the Dauphiné Alps, the Vercors Plateau forms a 3,000 feet high natural fortress with limited access to the outside world. Following the invasion of France’s Zone Libre by German and Italian armies, elements of the now disbanded Army of the Armistice found in Vercors the perfect base of operations from which to continue harassing the German occupier and its despised ally, the French Milice…

So begins the background to the Vercors Campaign – five new scenarios created by Jacques “jdrommel” David that highlight the heroic Maquisards of the French Resistance and their battle against overwhelming SS forces on the Vercors Plateau in the summer of 1944. As with all Memoir ’44 Campaigns, victory is earned over multiple battles with the outcome of each scenario determining the circumstances of the next.
