Good question, I have asked Armin Ace mulitple times but he has never replied. He may have "made" it up, he has a tendancy to make maps after "generic" battles.

It seems to be around Caen, possibly part of Operation Goodwood, 18-19th July 1944. The Lancasters were used to carpet bomb the Germans and the map of the area vaguely looks similar. The big town could be Caen.

Also the map lookslike it could be the area around Operation Bluecoat, 30th July 1944. The rivers around Operation Bluecoat were fordable and the town could be at Le Beny Bocage.

isn't it in northern France where the allies are planning there major breakout of the Bocage.The british plan was too make a breakout around Caen and distract the Germans while the Americans made there breakout towards the dutch border and the ports on the coast.

This is at least what i think the map is all about.

Yes, the left hook of the British breakout was Operation Goodwood, and the week or so later right hook was Operation Bluecoat.

Well, if we look at the name of hte map, Breakthrough 1944, where were the Brits trying to breakthrough lines in Europe in 1944?

The Area around Caen, which would be Operation Goodwood and Operation Bluecoat which resulted in the British breaking out of the bocage and into open farm country allowing for manuvering.

Just as the US used B-17's to carpet bomb the Germans to breakout in Operation Cobra, the Brits used Lancasters in Operation Goodwood. Breakout '44 is getting Lancasters.

It's called Fall Weiss-1939. It's the Blitzkrieg on Poland. Look at the allied flags and you'll notice that it's the Polish flag. How do you stop a Polish tank? Shoot the guy pushing it.
