The surprise assault on Pointe du Hoc has caught the German defenders off balance. What was assumed to have been a simple commando raid has turned into a major threat. An effort must be made to regain the initiative and drive the Americans back into the English Channel. You have been tasked with organizing the local Wehrmacht forces and counterattacking the Ranger's perimeter. The Americans must be defeated...and soon!
In Vorwarts!, you will play as the various German ad-hoc forces that are tasked with attacking the Ranger units and removing them from the Pointe du Hoc promontory. The gameplay is basically the same as in Crowbar! - push your units against the enemy in order to accomplish certain goals. But this time, you'll be attacking with the more fragile Wehrmacht forces and without very much heavy weapon support.
There are two new scenarios included in this expansion:
In "The Wehrmacht Strikes Back", you will play as the Grenadiers of F.R. 726 as you launch the initial lafte-afternoon attack, making the first serious attempt at driving the Rangers back into the sea.
In "The Night Assaults", you will take command of G.R. 914 and attempt to find, infiltrate, and destroy the Ranger perimeter in a series of vicious night assaults. Time is short and the stake are high!
Also included are four new scenarios for use in the base Crowbar! game.
Game Length: 47-180 minutes
This is not a stand-alone game. A copy of Crowbar! The Rangers at Pointe du Hoc is required to play.
