Thanks Huib! You´ll hear from me soon. My latest book just arrived, which is Heinz Gunther Guderians, Das letzte Kriegsjahr im Westen (history of the 116. Pz. Division). It has a wealth of detailed info re german units participating, but there are 2-3 odd german parachute units I can´t find the details I need. Would be:
Fallschirm Armee Waffen Schule (a reinforced Btl. type unit of likely mixed weapons), attached to 116. Pz
Korps Fallschirm Aufklarungs Btl. 12 (a Btl size para reccon unit of II. Fallschirm Korps), attached to 116. Pz
And...Hubners Fallschirm Armee Sturm Btl, likely a special assault unit at army level.
That's cool. Personally I'm very interested in this battle, but also in Blockbuster and the battles on the other side of the Rhein (Varsity & Plunder) and the later battles all the way to the end. Guderian is very useful.
I even have an original small document from Hubner (Cmdr FJR 24, not the Hubner of the Sturm Bn) himself that he wrote in the sixties, together with a map with his drawings on it.
Send me a pm with your email and I'll look what I can have on these units (I should have some as I stumbled on the same questions you are facing). From most units I also know where they were at a given time (not from my head ofcourse). The FJRs were shifted around the front quite a bit.
Going to send you PM!
Blockbuster, as part of Veritable is on my to do list already. I´ll finish this mini OP of the Moyland battle area and then expand to the full map overtime. I´ll likely leave out the flooded area, which can´t be played in BftB, but otherwise I need the northern part for the german Arty setup, or parts of it.
OP Veritable is surely not the best background for the BftB game engine, thus although interesting, Plunder/Varsity will lead to some more difficulties, unless just the Varsity stage of the battle is started with. BftB definitely needs some naval mode added to it, to allow some amphibious warfare.
Other interesting OPs could be Black Cock, Overloon and the Peel Marsh counter attack. We´ll see. If you like to cooperate on some of the stuff, let me know.
