Has anyone said yes to French DE 205 and UK DE 128 and successfully taken Narvik?
DE 128 – UK: Send an Expedition to Narvik?
Event fires: On the 25th April 1940 when Norway has surrendered to the Axis, Narvik is in Axis hands, neither
the UK nor France have surrendered, an Anglo-French expedition was sent to assist Finland, and a
French unit is at Aberdeen.
Cost of accepting: 10 MPPs.
Yes: The strength 8 British Special Forces unit at Inverness will be sent to the area around Narvik, from where
it can attempt to liberate the town. If successful, French and British National Morale will both be boosted by
Providing them with some naval support, particularly from Carriers to launch air strikes against the German
forces defending Narvik, could prove useful.
Note: As this is a Special Forces unit, it has the potential to be evacuated in an Amphibious Transport from
Norway without requiring a port, though the cost of evacuating it would be significantly greater than the cost
of sending it to Narvik.
Even with two UK Carriers for support, this operation has never succeed for me against the AI for either World at War or War in Europe.
Yes! - see post 64
Yes, some fool of a staff officer forgot to either send reinforcements when the Garrison was down to 1 or, as planned, swap it for the adjacent Infantry Corps brought in to finish the job ...... (shot at dawn)! What a mess that's become. SNAFU.
