Invasion 1944:
Mapping Normandy

Panzer Grenadier: Invasion 1944 is your gateway to the thousands of scenarios in dozens of games and books that make up the game series. Invasion 1944 takes place in the countryside of Normandy, as American troops fight their way off the beaches against stiff opposition from the German Army and paratroopers.

Invasion 1944 isn't ust for new players: the old guard will find plenty of fun inside, too. It has 21 scenarios, 176 pieces and two great maps by veteran artist Guy Riessen. They’re fully compatible with the maps from any other Panzer Grenadier, Panzer Grenadier (Modern) or Infantry Attacks game, though they might look a little odd alongside the lush farmlands of Flanders or the deep jungle of New Guinea.

Here’s a look:
