Hi , im new to the FH community , i have to say i really like bf1942 and FH to me is the next level of a game i already like a lot , thx to all who made it real :bows: and keep it growing. I want soon to start with a suggestion for a great map , the idea i have come form the movie : The Longest Day , where the Cap.Kieffer French commandos liberate Ouistreham , fightining their way in city , along the Orne Canal till the last stand at the Ouistreham Casinò , where there was a germany strong point to take. Thats a little story background for you guys : Ouistreham is a small town at the mouth of the River Orne in Normandy. The first Frenchmen land there to liberate their homeland. On 6 June 1944, in the morning, the 177 green berets commanded by Sea Captain Kieffer set foot on the French ground under the enemy fire. They must take the lock and dam of the river Orne canal. The French suffer heavy losses and their attack is kept in check a long time by the machine-guns of a blockhouse, built on the site of an ancient casino. Thanks to the support of a British tank, the French drive German resistance from the field and reach their objective. documentssupplementaires6vu.jpg

I hope you guys find these interesting and make this mape real and playable , like you alredy did with other i really enjoyed. Thx and bye

They had casinos In France! In 1944! :eek:

I suppose the map would be pretty good actually and it would mean more french, which is always a good thing

If thats the scene I ma thinking of it has a aerial view of all the Frenchmen fighting along the wharf attacking a German bunker with a house on top?

That would make a cool map.

yeah thats the scene , one of the first scene catched by a camera on elicopter ; in the scene u see the french commandos come out of the ruined city houses and advance alongside the Orde Canal , cross it along some wooden bridges and assault the strong german position of the Ouistreham casinò , where they have position set up on the roof with machineguns and stuff , and some light artillery in the basement , that was arranaged as fortified bunker. Then after hours of battle some british tank showed up to give a hand at the brave french commandos ; the only french forces used during d-day temed up with some brit commando overview map of the zone of Ouistreham (its from Close Combat but should work as an idea for fh1942 too) http://www.closecombatseries.net/CCS/images/storypix/GJS_THD0003.jpg some pics of the 1944 french commandos : http://www.commandosfnfl.net/Pge%20Uniformes.htm equipments : http://www.commandosfnfl.net/Pge%20Armement.htm other info : http://216.109.124.98/language/translatedPage?tt=url&.intl=it&text=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ddayinrete.it%2Fattaccoalle%2Fspiagge%2Fgjs%2Fsword%2Fsword.html&lp=it_en http://www.atlantikwall.org.uk/ouistreham.htm [color=black][/color]

I've been in that bunker, all the way to the top :) They had a fully stocked armoury too, with panzerfausts, stg44s, mp40s, k98s and so on.

Here is a pic from the top of it looking out towards Sword.

R.A.Sentenza, you may be new to the FH community but I never saw anyone post a map idea with so much documentation except Dönitz's never ending Arnhem project. Thank you very much. Welcome to the forums!
