A future direction regarding HTTR? For that I suggest a move to the east. No I dont mean an East Front game expansion, I mean the revenge for Market Garden, or MITR; meaning Move Into The Reich. Move into the Reich is not a what if scenario, it is real Word War 2 history, being the Battle of the Rhineland. See the operational map at; http://ibiblio.org/hyperwar/UN/Canada/CA/Victory/sk/Victory-40.jpg
February 8, 1945 was the startdate of Operation Veritable, followed on February 22, 1945 by Operation Blockbuster. The frontline at the start of Veritable was the Groesbeek-Mook area, by HTTR players already known as the Nijmegen part of the HTTR map where the bulk of the US 82nd Airborne Division was dropped during Operation Market Garden! See; http://ibiblio.org/hyperwar/UN/Canada/CA/Victory/maps/Victory-10.jpg
Operation Veritable was not, as Market Garden, directed to the Rhine-river in the Arnhem sector, but to the Rhine in the Wesel sector. The start of Veritable was on the Anglo-Canadian front the overture of the final stage in the 1944-1945 West European campaign. Veritable was the northern part of a Canadian-British and American pincer movement to clear the west bank of the Rhine-river between the German-Dutch border near Cleves and Neuss in the south. The American part of the pincer movement was named Operation Grenade.
The game expansion Move into the Reich could by completed with Operation Plunder and Varsity, the ultimate northern assault across the Rhine-river in the Rees-Wesel sector.
