Normandy 44 – A Bloody Summer is a redeveloped version of VaeVictis #27 best seller game (1999). The game has been deeply redeveloped, with new mechanims and a reviewed order of battle (twice as much counters than in its first edition). The units scale is the regiment for armored units and for those which lands on D-Day. Allied airforce is now fully included in the game and can be used by the anglo-american player to influence the outcome of the war. A second map allows Allied to push their units toward Paris or the Atlantic harbors. More details, more counters and a wider map for a more confortable game!
