I just wondered, if, after the Normandy HASL, MMP has any plans for any more late war modules?

I know I have asked before if MMP will ever do a Battle of Berlin module but I think that was answered pretty well by everyone

Anyhow, I just wondered if there was any plans to do anything else at all?
I'd love to see something covering the British army in Germany in 1945

Like "Operation Veritable" published by MMP in 2002?

Or..Manila?

I guess one should define "late war" as some view it as only 1945. Most MMP HASLS are late war aren't they? Besides Veritable, ABTF, KGP 1 AND KGP 2 are all late war.

The Battle of Bremen might work as a HASL, so get designing!
Was there still some solid organzied resistance around Bremen?

It happens to be my home town and what I have read so far rather indicates engagements at some particular points rather than a thoroughly organized line of resistance.
Depending on the scope of a potential HASL, this might be sufficient, though.

It took quite a while to capture Bremen, but it has been a while since I read about the British campaign (in a volume on Montgomery).

A couple of weeks earlier there was also stiff resistance at Lingen.

Fair point :D There is that to be sure.
I guess I was just hoping someone would cover the drive into Germany and some of the towns and suchlike

The Battle in Lingen would be exactly the sort of thing I would like to see I guess

I must admit it has been a very, very long time since I read anything about the war let alone the British campaign, I just haven't been reading much of anything of late (although I have now got a kindle so hopefully that will get me back into reading)

"WATCHTOWER" was mid-war, chronologically speaking. Early war per the American perspective.
