From the Publisher:
Rangers at Pointe du Hoc: On 6 June 1944, US Army Rangers stormed a German strongpoint overlooking Omaha Beach. The strongpoint was Pointe du Hoc, and the action on that morning was a small but critical victory, one whose results are still debated today.
- The Battle of Stony Point 1779: The American raid that was executed at Stony Point in July 1779 effectively secured a vital communication and supply link between New England and the rest of the colonies.
- The Battle of Chalons 451 AD - Aetius’ Coalition Battles Attila the Hun: In AD 451, Attila the Hun left the Great Hungarian Plain and crossed the Rhine River at the head of a huge army, intent on plundering the rich but largely unprotected province of Gaul. If he was successful, the rest of Europe would be ripe for conquest.
- Tczew 1627: With Poland focused on countering the Turkish and Tartar threat to its southeast, Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus saw his opportunity to attack. In the summer of 1627, the two sides would clash near the town of Tczew.
Rangers: Lead The Way is a solitaire simulation of the US Army Ranger assault on the Pointe du Hoc on D-Day. The game challenges the player to do better than the actual Ranger attack up the cliffs that historic morning and additionally allows the player to fight the battle using the planned, rather than the actual, forces and landing beaches. The scenarios cover action through 0300 June 7, a span of almost 24 hours. The area movement map uses one inch representing one-quarter of a mile. Scale: Ranger units are groupings of 3 to 12 men, with the Germans shown at squad level and counters representing heavy artillery and machinegun emplacements.
Components: One 22" x 34" map & 280 counters.
