I'm testing a "2" scenario campaign where the 1st scenario is basically just a filler/briefing and the 2nd scenario is the actual scenario. This format allows the player to deploy their forces in the scenario like they would in a campaign. If anyone wants to test this (its small, 1 company size force) please post here and I'll send it to you.

It is loosely based on an ASL Scenario.

Here's the draft briefing;

Vogt's Ritterkreuz

Date: May 1940
Game/Version: WinSPWW2 (v3.0)
Fixed Core Force Campaign

# Turns: 12
Nation: Netherlands
Command Size: Company (-)

Number of Scenarios: 1

INTRODUCTION:
As Operation Yellow opened, the Recon Battalion of the Verfugungs Truppen (or "V" Division) was detailed to Kampfgruppe Grave. This battle group was assigned the task of seizing bridges across the Waal River at Nijmegan, Neersbotsch, Hatert, Malden and Hueman. As the commander of the Dutch Security Forces defending Hatert, it is your job to stop the bridge from falling to the Germans at all costs.

AFTERMATH:
Only the bridge at Heuman was able to be taken intact. At Hatert every man in the assault detachment was either killed or wounded. A wounded Oberscharfurher Franz Vogt led the remnants of his unit, 4 men, on to capture the the damaged bridge against tenacious Dutch Resistance. Franz Vogt was awarded the Knights Cross for his bravery and determination. Vogt was the first man from the unit that was to become the 2nd SS Panzer Division "Das Reich" to be awarded the Ritterkreuz.

It plays from the Dutch side. Its a scenario BUT compiled in the campaign format, so you can deploy your forces as you want instead of going with a typical "forced" scenario setup.
