France '40 Review

There is little to complain about in GMT’s France ‘40. The games comes with two stand-alone scenarios, each with its own map. “Sickle Cut” covers the Germans’ attempts to cross the Meuse and race into the Allied backfield, while” Operation Dynamo” focuses on the Allies’ retreat to Dunkirk. The rules are fairly simple but give a good feel of the events of May 1940. A rule requiring the Allies to randomly draw reinforcement chits reflects the confusion of the French-British response to the German blitzkrieg and insures no two games will play exactly alike.
