It was September the first, 1939. German armoured forces, Stosstruppen and the Luftwaffe were prepared.
|# of Scenarios:
||Empires: Retail Release
Months of training were excellent, the weapons were modern.
The Führer gave the order to start "Fall Weiss", the attack on Poland.
The Messerschmitts Bf-109 cleared the path for the Heinkel and Junker Bombers to destroy everything.
Airports, communications centres and houses burned down.
There was horrible confusion among the enemy troops.
Then, the German "Panzers" rolled into the country and they eliminated all resistance.
After a few days, the enemy surrendered. This was the perfect strategy.
On May the fifth, 1940, the Germans attacked The Netherlands and Belgium.
With incredible speed and flexibility.
Again, the bombers destroyed a lot of enemy troops.
Though the Dutch fought desperately at some strategic points, most of them couldn't fight the Germans.
They're army was better and faster.
When The Netherlands refused to surrender, the Luftwaffe flew missions to Rotterdam.
The city burned down, over 30,000 citizens died in the flames.
During the "Five-Days-War", around 2200 Dutch soldiers and many Dutch citizens died and The Netherlands had to surrender.
Again, this was the perfect strategy.
...this was Blitzkrieg.

I've made this scenario/campaign to give players another view on WWII. Because, almost everything about WWII you see on Empires Heaven, is D-Day, Stalingrad (not trying to annoy you, Mechy ), or other stuff, and in all of them, you play on Allied side.
I wanted to change this. I've made up a nice map, a storyline (which is historical accurate), units, and some triggers (about 120).
Thanks to Derfel Cadarn, Mechstra, Talon Karrde and Adder for playtesting this and pointing out bugs.
V 1.2; Counter bug fixed
V 1.3; Sandbags fixed
V 2.1; Dunkirk and city capturing improved

The playability was good to except the difference between easy and medium was to big, Easy was to easy for me but medium was a little hard some times.
The balance is good, but in poland i had 1 army with tanks and that could overun the polish army easy.
Creativity was very good, you allready said it in the readme: ''I've made this scenario/campaign to give players another view on WWII.
