France 1940 - first 10 minutes of the classic movie - The Battle of Britain

A little taster to get you in the mood.....oh er missus!

France 1940

A Sunday night wargame - Wings of War (or Glory) set in May 1940 during the German assault on France and the Low Countries. The premise being that somewhere in France, a French armoured force prepares to blunt the German advance.
The Allied force takes shelter in some light woods. Hoping to give the enemy troops a nasty surprise.
The Force includes some of the heaviest tanks available to the French army. You will note they are mixed with infantry - a doctrine failure that would cause a great deal of misery.

Note the French church in the background, this was being used as a temporary Regimental Hq.
The Wehrmacht wait patiently for their Luftwaffe colleagues......
More Panzers join the spearhead in preparation for a sudden and violent advance after the JU87's visit.....
