|Invasion USA 1922|
STOP US AGGRESSION!! (again... lol!)
CANADA INVADES THE USA!!
Summer 1922, US officers have been captured whilst spying on key Canadian facilities. Under interrogation, US plans are revealed that a invasion of Canada is to take place. The Canadian Government led by Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King initiate "Defence Scheme Number 1". The Canadian Rapid Deployment Force is ordered to cross the border & capture strategic US locations. A cry for help goes out to the British Empire..!
"Total Nonsense" I hear you say. Well perhaps not completely, the US did have WAR PLAN RED & in response the Canadians did come up with DEFENCE SCHEME No 1. Bizarre, considering WW1 had just been fought.
Anyway, off we went to the MR.F's War Bunker & set about a series of linked games. Using the superb Hordes in the Trenches Rules, a hard hitting Canadian force was arrayed. Aeroplanes, Armored cars, Truck, Artillery, Rifles, Mg's, Mortars & Cavalry. A smaller US National Guard Force was pitted against them. Objectives, seize the two bridges crossing the US town of Stone Falls, then destroy the railway station & supply dump. Most of the figures used are from our 15mm WW1 collection, a few special pieces were put together for the campaign...
