It does exist. I took a look at it. It looks brutal.

Sonja (#458344), thing is, Dieppe scenario can only be one sided. I'm not sure the Allied wanted Dieepe to be a success in the first place. Any tank coming ashore was subject to breakdown due to the "beachsand". Few games were made on this peticular battle because it's one sided.

IMHO, in order to be historically accurate, have the tank move only one beach square at a time. It won't be happy an day for the allied troop.

Few games were made on Dieppe, there was a Command Magasine game that offered a scenario option that would give the raid a chance. Name of the game is Second Front Now, simple for a wargame.

What would do a great scenario is the battle of Ortena (Little Stalingrad of the south), in Italy. Canadians and Germans survivors used (and maybe still) meet in the little town in the Christmas time (when this battle occured).

Some months ago I posted an Ortona scenario on this site, and I think it's a good one.

I also posted three other Canadian scenarios, and would have produced a few more, but there didn't seem to be much interest from the community.

I hope you'll try them, and let us know what you think.

Sunray11 (#459571), I will surely look it up. I think I have an Up FRont scenario for Ortona as well. Bloody, as I remeber it. There should be some scenarios involving Canadians in the Netherlands as well.

Sonja, if you have the opportunity to play the Overlord scenario (requiring two games), jump on it. It takes lots of space, and a long time to set up, but in the end, lots of fun.
