Memoir ’44 Battle Map Volume 4: Disaster at Dieppe

Here comes the final installment in our first Battle Maps series!

the Disaster at Dieppe expansion features 2 large-scale ready-to-play Overlord Scenarios, 4 Standard Scenarios, 6 half-tracks miniatures and 6 Jeeps miniatures.

Disaster at Dieppe highlights the ill-fated raid on the German-occupied coastal town of Dieppe, code-named, Operation Jubilee; while The capture of Tobruk features Rommel in June of ’42 as he relentlessly pushes his Afrika Korps after smashing through the British lines at Gazala in North Africa.

The Battle Map series is designed to encourage team play and accommodates up to 8 players; each map comes ready-to-play with all terrain, obstacles and unit positions pre-printed, making set-up a snap. Battle Map Volume 4 includes 6 half-tracks miniatures, 6 jeeps miniatures and 4 standard scenarios that are playable on a regular Memoir ’44 board. The 4 Standard scenarios are: Raid on Barce and Rommel’s Right Hook, featuring the new Willys jeeps as long-range patrol cars; and Panzers in the Atlas and Le-Mesnil-Adelée, featuring the new Sd.Kfz. 250 half-tracks. Also included are detailed rules for the long-range patrol cars and half-tracks.

Memoir ’44 Battle Map Volume 4 requires one copy of Memoir ’44 and the Operation Overlord expansion, or two full copies of Memoir ’44. Purists wishing to use all figures of the proper color in the Overlord scenarios will also need two copies of the Mediterranean Theater expansion. It is expected to be available in September in both North America and Europe. Retail price is $18/€16.

    Sweet! I was just wishing for Jeeps last week in a conversation with a friend, and for the very purpose of doing an LRDG patrol!

    wow this is great news. I’ve been wanting more Africa scenarios (Africa is by far my favorite ww2 campaign). I’m going to get this the first day it comes out. I’m also very excited to try out the new half tracks and jeeps

  4. Josh C. says:

    I hope the Italians are present in some of this battle map’s scenarios

    Love the great support for Memoir’44. An Overlord Dieppe map sounds pretty interesting. The half-tracks look stubby but a great addition to Memoir.

    Good news!

    Don’t forget, the 250 was quite stubby-looking in comparison to the 251. In fact, I think the level of detail in the minis looks impressive.

    September? thats 2 1/2 months away yet.

    Looking forward to it.

  8. Barry Doyle says:

    Just curious — why is this one the final installment in the first series? I haven’t kept up on things that much, so will the next “series” be something different, like Breakthrough maps?

  9. Eric says:

    Because the figures in these maps are produced in batches for production reasons (ie they all come from a same mould). No decision has been made yet as to what the next series will contain.

  10. Chris Swancara says:

    We need some Pacific Theatre Overlord Scenarios. Iwo Jima and Tarawa would do nicely. Pacific Theatre Breakthrough as well; Guadalcanal and Okinawa would be interesting.

    Thanks, Eric — looking forward to whatever the next series will be!
