In Early May of 1944, America was preparing to undertake the largest amphibious landing in history. The Invasion of Germany occupied France, Operation Overlord or D-Day. In the late afternoon hours of May 3rd, a large force of B-17’s departed England for a rare nighttime mission with the intent of striking various targets along the German, France border to destroy rail stations, bridges and infrastructure to hamper Germany’s military from moving forces rapidly into the beachhead area once the invasion started.

A single pair of B-17 aircraft were designated with a special top-secret mission, stripped of guns, bombs and personnel the aircraft could transport a small number of personnel. Aboard the pair of aircraft was a special contingent of 82nd Airborne special forces. Their mission was to parachute into occupied France, obtain much needed intelligence on command and control facilities and make contact with the French Resistance to destroy key communication facilities just prior to the landings at Normandy.

Early in the mission, the second aircraft of the mission developed problems with it’s oxygen system, forcing it to either abort the mission or drop to a safer altitude. The commander of the airborne element made the decision to continue the mission and the two aircraft dropped below the formations of B-17 that were taking place in the bombing missions.

Enemy anti-aircraft fire near Strasbourg became intense. The first B-17 in the element was struck and was last seen going down in flames over Strasbourg. The second aircraft was hit only moments later and the crew/personnel were forced to bail out just to the east of Strasbourg.

Within 2 days of the failed mission, French spies relayed to British Intelligence that a number of the crew and airborne personnel had been captured and moved to the concentration camp at Natzweiler, Aproximatly 50 km from Strasbourg. Among those captured was the American Colonel that had been in charge of the special mission. This immediately caused concern among the allies as the Colonel had knowledge of the planned invasion of France. A rapid decision was made to send a highly trained unit of British Special Forces to attempt to recover the captured personnel before the dreaded SS could transfer and interrogate them. This mission, simply known as “The Raid On Natzweiler” would have huge ramifications on the success or failure of the planned D-Day invasions. If the information that was known by the American’s became known to Germany, then Operation Overlord would become one of the worst defeats in history.

On May 7th, a second night time bombing mission of the Strassbourg area was planned, with a single aircraft being set aside to drop the special forces unit to attempt the rescue.

Thus began "The Raid On Natzweiler"

You're new here. Since you're promoting a game in a region this is the right place.

One subject - one thread. No need to post this everywhere.

Also a link to the field or contact info is always good.

I think you're a little confused Punisher. We had severe thunderstorms at the last one, that's why the second day was cancelled. AND THE ONLY REASON THE SECOND DAY WAS CANCELLED. Ghost Recon events don't get cancelled for any reason unless it poses a great risk to player safety.

Oh, and it was the Wizard of Oz game where we played in some snow. That was a crazy day. Snow on the ground and it ended up being about 60* outside. Probably the most fun I've had playing.

Hey, is anyone going to bring AT weapons or even better, TANKS??? That would be sweet!!! I remember the last Raid on Natzweiler there were tanks and it added a twist to the game that can't otherwise be added... it's awesome, if you have one let us know, we could use you.

I want to see some of these :) on the field

so, what does everyone want to see up at this game??? I know that there are two things I'm looking for, and that's bigger turnout, and more "exotic" weapons... I think that would be sweet!!!
