File Description

On 14 August, Guy Simonds's 2nd Canadian Corps launched Operation Tractable, another major offensive in an attempt to meet up with American forces advancing from the south and close the Falaise Pocket. Initially repulsed, it redoubled its efforts on 16 August, this time with 2nd Canadian Division also committed to the attack. The next day, Falaise finally fell. In coordination with the Americans, who began to attack, belatedly, from Argentan in the south on the 18th, the 1st Canadian Army proceeded to close the gap. When the troops of the Polish Armoured Division linked up with the Americans at Chambois on late 20 August, the Allies finally shut the gate on the Falaise Pocket.

Special Thanks:

Hats off to Kiosk for allowing me to convert his fine map! The gameplay design is great and real fun now both *offline* or on. :)  Thanks to General Disarray for hosting the map, Bobton for putting up with my constant questions, the guys at BFSP for their advice/help in editing/bugfixing, and to BattleGroup42 team for their great mod.  Also Big thanks goes to Hellisher for his BFSPC program which made offline play possible for this map; and I'd also like to thank the doctor who messed up my dad's vasectomy, otherwise, I wouldn't be here. 


Gameplay Strategies and tips:

Important information vital to winning in this map is the flag values.  There are 5 Flags in the map, 4 of them are worth 25 points apiece and the Windmill flag is worth 50.  Whichever team manages to get 100 flag points can start a ticket bleed on the opposing team, whether its by capturing 4 of the 25 point flags, or just the Windmill flag and 2 other flags.  This makes the windmill a particular point of interest, as whoever usually manages to take it wins the game.  But since the windmill is not a requirement to a ticket bleed, a clever team who can capture and hold the other 4 points can still pull off a decisive victory. :)

Good luck, and I hope everyone enjoys this classic community map conversion.
