This scenario was entertaining but the map needed to be bigger with more room on the flanks. The breakthrough board isn’t really an option because the configuration is wrong -- the rectangle needs to be wider than it is deep to really set the mood for Operation Sealion.

Have you considered the BattleLore Epic Board Pete? it is 17 x 13 as opposed to 13 x 17 of the Breakthrough board.
Another great Alternative Scenario Pete, you inspire us all.

Isn't the Epic Battlelore board just a second board you can add to your normal board to get the Epic size? Just like making an overlord board out of two Memoir boards?

Yes, terrain tiles are the same size.

Edit: Yep, it's 8x13. But you can use two of them to get a 17x13 board.


Edit2: Does it really matter if the hexes are horizontal or vertically shifted? Just turn the grass Breakthrough board sideways and skip buying two BL:Epic sets...

Yes, it makes a very big difference, if the flat is towards the player you have 2 full rows of dual section hexes, each unit faces 3 rather than 2 hexes and retreat paths are more open.

Any chance you can write this scenario up for standard M'44 rules?

I love hypothetical battles and would like to see a full scale invasion campaign for England, the US, and also the Patton Plan of re-arming the Germans and going after the USSR.

OK, but please add Polish units to spice up things: one on white star side (like paras) and one on the other (Polish People's Army) like it would be in real life:(. They would not be allowed to fight each other (a kind of special rule).
