The eagerly-awaited sequel to The Devil's Cauldron: The Battles for Arnhem and Nijmegen, Where Eagles Dare: The Battle for Hell’s Highway completes the Market Garden saga and allows players to play out the entire operation. In addition, Where Eagles Dare is also a complete standalone game, offering a fascinating game situation in which the outnumbered elite 101st Airborne division must race from emergency to emergency - to maintain the vital lifeline to the British 1st Airborne Division fighting for its life in Arnhem. This single and fragile lifeline would come to be called “Hell’s Highway”.
Where Eagles Dare is the next game in the Grand Tactical Series of company level games offered by Multi-Man Publishing. The game will also introduce new terrain types and new special rules to fully explore the battle. Where Eagles Dare will introduce a special off-map movement system to allow the Germans to move forces from sector to sector of the battlefield and a host of other rules to make this game as unique and interesting as The Devil’s Cauldron.
Scenarios will include the following famous historical actions:

This will allow play on a card table-sized space or less. I simply took the VASSAL images and through a series of scans and PDF creation made these maps. I was doing it for my own use and then decided to share.
The first scenario turned out well. I have to admit the colors for scens. 2-3 are a bit out of whack. A result of scanning I'm afraid.
Hopes this helps other fans of the series.
