A Very British Civil War
Note: this is clearly a “what-if” scenario, loosely based on the bustling miniatures war gaming off-shoot of the same name. Outstanding work has been done by Solway Crafts and Miniatures, and I credit them with the brilliance of this war gaming theme.
Background
England, May 1938 (designer note: note the in-game calendar notes “1944”; this is only to create the optics of lush green environment of the British Isles)
Weather: overcast, mild, dry
The very social fabric of Great Britain was torn during the apocalypse that was The Great War. The mightiest empire on the globe ended victorious, but at what cost? The rigid social hierarchy was shaken, and the world wide waves of social change did not stop at the English Channel. Class structure, worker’s rights, regional animosities have all brewed in the decades following the Great War. This has all been exacerbated by the crippling economic crisis of the 1930s, to which the ever cautious government responded to by constricting public spending ever more.
In May 1937, King Edward VIII of the United Kingdom married Wallis Simpson. The marriage to Wallis was not supported by Stanley Baldwin, the British Prime Minister; and King Edward refused to abdicate. This marriage left the British government, and most of the people, alienated; and public hatred for King Edward and Queen Wallis rose. Parliament was torn, and in the general election of 1937, Baldwin was defeated. The Conservative party, ripped by the issue of King Edward’s marriage, as well as economic and regional tensions, broke apart, and a large segment of the Tory support went to the British Union of Fascists. Oswald Mosley’s promise to ensure public order, and shore up the Empire, resonated with a public tired of public disturbances, strikes in essential services, and the economic malaise. The Labour party too split, with the more radical sections forming their own splinter parties which ran their own candidates. The 1937 election results saw a fractured parliament, and although only winning slightly over 200 seats, and less than 30% of the vote, the BUF formed the largest caucus in the House of Commons. King Edward VIII asked Oswald Mosely to form a government. Mosley did so and almost immediately issued “Orders of Council”, outlawing strikes, restricting collective bargaining, and establishing new offences for unauthorized public gatherings, and publishing “any article intended to alarm the public”. Any opposition was swiftly responded to, if not by the police, then by Mosely’s own BUF Blackshirts, the BUF’s paramilitary wing.
In January 1938, a protest by Dockyard workers in Liverpool was brutally crushed by the BUF and elements of the Regular Army; and violent clashes began across the country; between the Kings troops and those of several other factions. The British Civil War has begun!

Factions: The outbreak of conflict led several groups to attempt to seize the country or their own personal goals. Major factions included:
On the Right (Axis in this scenario
* The Edwardian Army – elements of the professional Army, bound to King Edward VIII.
* The Royal Navy and Royal Marines – bound by tradition and culture to remain loyal to the reigning monarch, and the majority have done so.
* The British Union of Fascists (or “BUF”) – the dominant political party, led by Oswald MOSLEY and heavily backed by German and Italian interests. Mosley has garnered considerable support in his efforts to restore order internally and restore the status of Britain’s Empire
* The Mosley Youth – a “social club” of young men, who have been drilled and armed by unknown sources, and have formed para-military units to push the BUF agenda.
* Foreign Volunteer Units: after the recruiting of numerous foreign elements to fight in the Spanish Civil War, similar detachments have been formed to back those with similar agendas in the British Civil War. Contingents from other fascist and imperialist sympathizers have been formed. Here we will see the presence of the “Hanoverian Legion”, volunteers from Germany, who are backing the Edwardian and BUF efforts
On the Left (Allied in this scenario)
* The Albertine Army – elements of the regular forces, plus most of the “Territorial Army”, backing the young Prince Albert’s claim to the throne.
* The Anglican League - A large army led by a group of bishops and archbishops, they were aligned with the Albertine Army. Many are veterans of the Great War.
* The People’s Party Army - Made up of disillusioned Labour party supporters, disgruntled workers and Spanish Civil War veterans, they are seeking to turn Britain into a Socialist state based upon Lenin's Russia.
* The Farmer’s Union: radical small plot farmers and farm working hands, seeking better pay, price subsidies, and land redistribution. They are heavily influenced by Marxist doctrine.
* The Student’s Union: like students before and after them, the university students have ramparts to thwart whomever they view as authoritarian,
* Foreign Volunteer Units: after the recruiting of numerous foreign elements to fight in the Spanish Civil War, similar detachments have been formed to back those with similar agendas in the British Civil War. Groups of Americans, Canadians, and ANZAC units have been formed; here we will see the Lafayette Battalion, formed of French volunteers, many fresh from the savage fighting in Spain.
This scenario occurs in the West Coast port town of Twaddlemore. Twaddlemore is the home base for a small Royal Navy destroyer flotilla, as well as being a mid-sized port for international commerce. Given that the United Kingdom lives or dies based on this freedom to trade overseas, the port is vital to all in this conflict. The Royal Navy, which for the most part has remained loyal to King Edward VIII, dispatched the flotilla two days ago to join the rest of the fleet, tasked with stemming the flow of foreign volunteers coming to fight for their faction of choice. Many of these foreigners have come directly from fighting for the Nationalists or the Republicans in Spain, who have endured two years of their own brutal Civil War already.
Yesterday the dock workers, who are heavily influenced by communist agents and are affiliated with the People’s Party, refused to move armaments stored in the dock warehouses. Instead, they armed themselves and fighting broke out when security staff sought to control the situation. Who opened fire first is both in dispute and a moot point at this juncture. A company of the Army’s Provost Corps was rushed to Twaddlemore by train, but a bomb was used to derail the trail just outside of town. Multiple factions are either in town currently or rumoured to be headed this way. The Telephone Exchange is the key to communicating with the rest of the country, and is clearly a goal to secure. Likewise, the docks and the armaments stored there in are also of immense value. Lastly, the mysterious new Wireless Tower being built on the south shore is of unknown value, as the work crews are from “away” and appear to be quite Teutonic in manner.
This battle will surely prove that the term “Civil War” is clearly a misnomer.
A historically fictional 'what if' look at the events leading up to the Deutsche Afrika Korps capture of Tobruk in June 1942.
SCENARIO DESCRIPTION
A meeting engagement played out in the wooded terrain of the Ardennes at the beginning of the Bulge. 60+ turns.

The Germans are trying to seize important territory: bridges, cross-roads, and towns to allow breakthrough armored thrusts. Central to this map is the village of L’Shone and its surrounding road network.

The Americans are trying to occupy the same terrain to prevent its use by the Germans.

It is hard to believe that it was only a week ago when we first heard of “The Outbreak”. Initially it was thought to be a terrorist biological attack, with outbreaks in large cities overwhelming medical facilities. But soon it was apparent it was much more… the more we hear, the more we realize that we know very little – the cause – the prognosis – or the scale of this crisis. All remain unknown – at least to the general populace. What the “government” knows may be something else again.
You are Jack McCann, police chief in the small coastal tourist town of Shady Acres, Maine. Normally by this time of the year, your town is overrun with loud tourists from the cities of the East Coast. If only that were the case.
Four days ago a large staff of the Center for Disease Control showed up at the Town Hall, and brusquely informed the Mayor, Chuck Zeto, that the Federal Government was immediately taking control of “Shady Island”, a favourite picnic spot in the bay. This was all one-way communication, you don’t know much more other than soon thereafter a convoy of sealed trucks arrived and barbed wire was being strung across the access bridge to the island.
The National Guard has been mobilized, and your own police force has been placed under the command of the governor’s office.
And yet even now, you are not sure why. A strange illness has swept the globe, but what little news was initially released was like something from a bad movie. Now that trickle of news has stopped altogether. The official story is that a Chinese cyber attack has shut down the Internet, but this being Small Town America, there are a lot of conspiracy theories floating about.
The Mayor, Chuck Zeto, who also is the local bank manager, has asked that citizens assist in securing the town from whatever threats may arise. Given that the local National Rifle Association sponsored Chuck’s last campaign, their members were eager to show their affinity for the 2nd amendment and reaffirm their ownership of large capacity magazines and assault rifles. With some hesitation, you agreed to deputize these men, but have asked them to stay at home until they may actually be required. Their training and experience doesn’t necessarily match their enthusiasm.
You were at your office all night. You had a call from Doctor Jacobie at the hospital. Dr. Jacobie, a Vietnam war draft dodger who only returned from Canada in the 1990s, is determined to ignore what he considers a “fascist edict” that all patients in suspected cases of the “outbreak” be turned over to the C.D.C. immediately and quarantined on the Island. “It reminds me of the interment of the Japanese in 1942!” Jacobie ranted, and he said he would treat all patients as “patients, not criminals”. At that, you sent two teams of part time deputies to the hospital to deal with any issues that may arise.
The town is an important transportation hub, in that the coastal railway runs through the town. The Railway has deployed their own security at the train station, as if there is an epidemic, it is important to prevent those infected from traveling. Hopefully they have enough staff to do the job.
You remained in your office all night, and it seemed that things may be calming down, but then with a complete news black out, and the mute C.D.C. guards by the island Park, who knows? You did receive several calls from citizens overnight, reporting screams and other noises from the areas near cemeteries last night; typically the local teens will go there to drink and smoke up. Although you usually will send a Deputy to put the run on them, there are more important things to do now.
The sun is coming up, but a heavy thick fog has blankets the town. A convoy of C.D.C. relieve staff are expected in from Bangor any minute; hopefully they have some news. To allow your exhausted staff get some needed rest, two detachments of National Guard troops will be arriving, one is about 5 minutes away and a second convoy from the east in another 5 minutes after that. It will be good to get home and hit the sheets. You are so tired you feel like the walking dead.
Your phone rings. It is the security detail from the train station. Old man Codger, a elderly farmer who lives north east of town, has just shown up at the Rail station, out of breath and terrified. He is rambling about being attacked at his home, and that the only way he could escape is by setting the buildings on fire. You had better send a Deputy to go interview him. It sounds bizarre.
The phone rings again… it is Deputy Boomhauer at the hospital. He sounds quite distraught. Apparently the hospital was overwhelmed with patients overnight, and now he reports the motion detector alarms in the morgue have gone off.
At that second the switch board lights up, and several simultaneous “10-78” calls are received – “officer need assistance!”… What the?????”

This scenario is
1) Meant strictly for play against the AI. Although it one player wants to try playing the Axis/Zombies, please feel free.
2) The scenario is meant to be strictly for fun.
3) Watch you ammo loads. Shoot for the head. You only have the ammo you brought into the fight.
August 12,1944. France. SE of Argentan.
Married platoons of U.S. 5th Armored Division
night out-posts.
France, 1940 - Case Red.

Heavy Tanks of the 4th DCR must smash a hole in the advancing German line - but there are complications.
At Dornot, the U.S. Third Army's XX Corps' first attempt to establish a bridgehead on the Moselle River south of Metz met bloody failure. Two and a half miles south of Dornot the XX Corps' 10 Infantry Regiment is trying once more to establish a permanent bridgehead across the Moselle at Arnaville. Since the first U.S. troops crossed at Arnaville on the night of 8/9 September, the Germans have been launching increasingly vicious counterattacks in an effort to destroy the bridgehead and repeat what happened at Dornot.
This is an Aug 44 meeting engagement between Brit and German mech forces in Belgium. The map is based on a satellite photo of Neubruck just southeast of St. Vith.
Cassino town was destroyed by Allied Airforces on Wednesday, March 15th, along with the abby known as Monte Cassino. "The town was blown assunder and beaten into heaps of rubble, the official British history reported. Yet hundreds of bombs and thousands of shells failed to pound the town to powder, contrary to Allied expectations, nor were the surviving defenders 'rendered comatose', as planned." --The Day of Battle
Normandy - known for its rolling fields, orchards, stud farms and a good glass of cider. Sheltered from the elements which can pound the coastline this is a landscape is carpeted in apple blossom. It is here, at the heart of one of the best designated cider producing areas that you will find the Chateau les Bruyîres, an Empire period residence and 18th century manor house - run by the Wehrmacht. It is your task to put an end to this inappropriate ownership.

Soviet vs. German Meeting Engagement. 60+ turns.
Best played as: H2H (Not recommended for vs. AI play due to mounted infantry.)

In recent weeks, this industrial center has been the scene of increasingly sharp clashes between recon units and regular forces. Both sides have traded jabs over this important airplane fabrication city. Both have moved into the town and then been forced out again. No one seems to be able to hold it. The landing gear assembly plant on the edge of town was occupied by the Red Army a few days ago and then burned and destroyed as the Wehrmacht forced them out. Much of the town lies untouched, but the workers and residents know it is just a matter of time before a major battle rages through the streets of their city…

After another bloody engagement, both sides have backed off. Again, in the still of a Sunday morning under the cover of a pounding rainstorm, both sides push forces forward to gain possession of the city.

No one is sure where the front lines lie. Is the enemy in front of you? Or is he gone?

Push forward, as so many before you have tried, and hold this town once and for all!
This is a CMBB scenario, modelling Plan Yellow in France in May 1940.

October, 1942
In the northern Caucaus, along the Terek river line, the battle has been raging brutally for nearly two months. Germany's 13.Panzer-Division tasked with taking the key junction city of Vladikavkaz (Ordzhonikidze) has been stymied in it's every attempt to breakthrough.

But now, at the end of October a break has been achieved through the first mountain range and panzers are rolling along the valley near Ardon, on a back route to Vladikavkaz.

The Russians, somewhat disorganized, are withdrawing to new positions. A desperate stand is ordered to slow the German advance and buy time to set-up the new defensive positions.

*****************************************

a Couple of weeks ago the Allies have conquered one of the major towns in France.

Now the Germans broke through the American line of defense in the Ardennes and are advancing rapidly towards this town.

Can the Allied commander hold this town?
November 1944, the French 2nd Armored Division is tasked to breach the German fortified line of the Vosges mountains. This battle takes place on the second days of the attack. The different French Task forces are competing with each other in order to be the first to reach the plain of Alsace. The company team Minjonnet (part of the Task Force Massu) blocked close to Voyer in a narrow valley by German remnants of the 708. ID has to bypass quickly this resistance. The French can be sure that their old enemy is not about to ease their action !

This CMBO map is built from a topographical map of the little town of Seville, NE of Melbourne, Australia. My idea was to lauch a Brit brigade (3 btns) across it at a German static defence screening mobile reserves.
Desiliens is an ancient Roman town. The map features the ruins of the town, an aquaduct, and the ruins of a villa on a low central hill.

The eastern side of the map is mostly woods, the west is hills and farms. It is most suitable for an assault on the town, but if the focus is shifted to the ruined villa it would be good for a meeting engagement.

Ceb+0, major victory.

Ok. Finally have some free time to play with the Axis. I had some hard time clearing the fords but there was enough time and equipment to finish the job. Especially flame-tankettes cleared the allied trences very efficently. Poor lads... Ai surrendered at turn 30.

Good screnario! Works either way against the AI and could be interesting H2H screnario. Experienced player should take the axis.

My two cents.
German 8-wheel armoured cars could be discarded from the final version.

Cherioo!!

Thanx for the feedback Horst

Good idea with the flags, might try that. Might just remove altogether the flag in the village, so make it that the crossings and the rear are the important locations?

I'll reduce the ammo for the 18pdr too, i got the impression that it might be too much as well, but just wanted people to try it out :)

I think you'll enjoy the Axis vs AI :) I did Big Grin

Allied vs. Ai-Ceb+3.
Major victory.

Huh. Tough battle! Eek!
Ai did much better this time. Those extra fords really gave Ai more routes to attack and in the end AI was in full control of the river. Central flag was theirs, my hidden units kept other two river-flags neutral, village- and rear-flag were mine.

My two cents.

Allied:
-18-pdr. spotter could have less rouds. 50-60 could be ok.
-Allied rear-flag could be small, second village-flag could be large.

Axis:
Ok.

Just have to try it with Axis too... Wink

After looking this over I would say you have the base for a great scenario.... I agree with previous comments to expand the map.. and if you need to try the 'AI exit', I would for go the exit and try extending the map and add some additional VL towards the rear.... A way to cut back on some of the Allies power would be to make the squads 70-80% fit, which if they have been fighting against the AK for a few days (plus the shelling) that would probably be correct....

Also cut the 3 inch Spotter to maybe 100 rounds not 180... you can also cut rounds on the HMG's which makes the defense tougher in that you must be cautious when picking and letting it go on a target

You could also triple up the fords (every other 20 mm) to give a little better chance for the attacking infantry...

Not sure if all that would work... I believe the force mix is right for a H2H game... (expecially if you reduce the allies fitness)....

The Briefings were great....

if you come out with a release with

1) map expansion and a little better crossing area (fords)
2) eliminate the Exit type and place VL's further to the rear

I would give it a try vs AI or if I can get one of my regulars to play me I would try it H2H

Great Job for a first try.... Where were you 5 years ago Wink

That is all...

Thanks for that Mudhugger, i'll remove those exits. I'll look at expanding the map too :)

Cheers for your feedback :)

I did try to add a deep ford in one of my early tests, about halfway between the bridge and southern ford, but that resulted in all the infantry rushing that spot and no action anywhere else.

with the changes i'm making i'll try it again though, hopefully it works out :)

Hi rhythalion,

My comments are strictly pertaining to a vs. AI game. And they echo Horst.

The AI doesn't do exit well. So it should be Axis vs. AI for some challenge. I never moved a soldier and kept hitting go, poor souls never crossed the river.

As far as exit mission at all, I would change. Just take the map and they can move on later.

The map I liked, though I would make it bigger on both sides. The roads along the edges look odd, needs some expansion for visual appeal if nothing else. You might add a few deep fords for infantry to cross in other spots.

I enjoyed the briefing. Good read.

The units? Like I said, I never moved anyone and didn't look over the map at end. I will wait for next version.

My last thoughts, I believe designers can't really make a great AI game and 2 player game in the same version. You must stack the deck a little against you in an AI version, which unbalances a 2 player fight.

Thanks for designing and sharing. Smile

Thanx a lot for your feedback Horst, that helps a lot Smile It is a bit easy for the allied player... i may have been a bit biased when making it haha.

I actually played as the Italians myself yesterday a few times, and I agree that it might be batter played as them, as I found it challenging. I've made a few changes that i'm testing as well along the lines you mentioned, and i'll incorporate some of your suggestions too.

I'm reducing the allied forces like you suggested, removing 1 of the tanks, moving one of the 2 pdr's back to the middle right hand sandbag and moving the bren AA gun up, and i've also gone through the infantry etc and made a few squads weakened or green or both etc, as a result of the artillery bombardment (added a bunch of craters too) but i'll also go through and look at removing some troops as well.

i'll have a look and add a couple of allied flamethrowers, was thinking of removing the Italian ones but might keep them for now.

I've reduced the allied reserves, but will make the changes to the Dingo's and tanks. Actually I was thinking of removing the tanks completely from the reserves, what do you think?

The Italians do have some spotters. in the middle front of their setup positions they have an 81mm mortar spotter and a 75mm artillery spotter, although in the next version i've increased their ammo and they will be set up in the building just outside of the axis setup zones, and ready to direct traffic, as if they came in during the night before the main force. Will make an adjustment to the battle time from mid day to dawn as well i think. The AI didn't seem to use them very well though.

Other things i'm looking at doing, removing the small flags at the crossroads in axis territory and at the rear of the allied positions, and in the village. That will leave just the two fords with minor flags and the bridge with a major flag. Maybe that will help the AI a bit.

Also i'm looking at reducing the ammo for the allied spotter, tanks and AT guns.

I'll upload the new version later on a bit, i'll wait for a few hours and see if anyone has any more feedback first Big Grin

Ceb+3, total victory.

Just too easy... But if this is your first screnario, then I´ll raise my hat for you. Good job! Smile
Ai:s infatry just never had the change to cross the fords. Short arc:s and artillery cut them down and they just kept coming over and over again. It was horrible... I had squads at the northern ford with 100+ casualtys. Spotter had allso 70+ casualtys.

So what to do...
I think it would be better to change the sides. Player should attack with Italians. Italians should brake the line and germans should pull through and exit. At least that is how I would do it. All exiting german inf:s should then have a vechile to ride with (halftrack, truck, tank).

Allied forces.
If you must have this allied vs. Ai, then allied man-power must be reduced.

setup:
-Trenches and mines are ok but you could loose the wire.
-A.Coy and engineer-platoon is ok. You can loose that second ind. rifle-platoon.
-Too much hmg:s. 2 hmg:s and 2 Bredas would be my choise.
-Could engineers have some flamethrowers? One or two?
reserves:
-Too much reserves. I would reduce it to Three platoons (2 regulars and one engineer-platoon).
-Loose the Dingos. Light hmg-tanks/carriers would be better.
-One Hurricane is enough.
-Cruiser-platoon with three tanks.

Axis:
-Italians need more he-power. I didn´t see any spotters and they need them. One heavy howitzer-spotter and one mortar/light howitzer-spotter should work.
-They could allso use more guns at the field. 2 75mm field guns and 0ne or two 20mm Bredas would be good, with trucks ofcourse.
-Italians have tankettes but none of them is equiped with flamethrowers. I would like to see one or two of them at the field. (I just love them...)

H2H version:

Allied.
Same as Ai:version, but keep the fortifications.

Axis.
-Italians need those spotters. Smoke is crucial!!!

-Map is nice but size is medium, not huge. You must change that. Briefing is ok.

Ok.
Good job for a beginner. Smile

Cheriooo!!!
