Capturing Caesar’s Camp is a Pint-Sized campaign for Chain of Command, designed to be played using the campaign handbook At the Sharp End and the Blitzkrieg 1940 Handbook.
A thirty-two page PDF, Capturing Caesar’s Camp contains an overview of the events of May and early June 1940. as the German panzers dashed across Northern France and the Low Countries, trapping the Allies at Dunkirk and forcing their evacuation.
However, not all of the British forces withdrew across the Channel. To the south of the Somme, the 51st Highland Division remained to fight alongside their French comrades in the hope that a new defensive line could be formed and a second British Expeditionary Force sent to continue the war.
This campaign focuses on the actions on the Somme, with the British, supported by French guns and armour, attempting to crush a bridgehead held by the German 57th Infantry Division. If the Highlanders can push the Germans back across the Somme, the much anticipated Weygand Line may become a reality and the German advance south checked.
The campaign is a total of six game tables with the duration running between five and nine games. Briefings are provided for both sides, along with measurable objectives, period maps, force and support option listings and everything you need to play this campaign through to its conclusion.
Like all of our Pint-Sized campaigns, this PDF is available for the price of a pint in our local pub. We’re sure that you’ll agree, that is great wargaming value!
