Description Edit | History

The Fall of France is a two-player game recreating the German Blitzkrieg in France and the Low Countries in the spring of 1940.

At 16 miles per hex, the maps cover France, the Low Countries, southern England, Switzerland, northern Italy, and western Germany. Each player controls the air and ground forces committed to the invasion or defense of the west. Naval units are not used in the game and are included for Europa purposes. Air units are based on groups of about 40 aircraft; naval units represent flotillas of destroyers and individual capital ships and cruisers; ground units are scaled at divisions, brigades, regiments, and battalions.

The rules use the basic Europa game mechanics as a framework, with specialized rules covering the historical situation in detail such as movement, combat, air power, supply, fortifications, gliders, naval evacuation, and the Maginot Line.

Game Components:

  • Two 21" x 27" Maps (Europa maps 16 & 17)
