Description

The Dark Summer: Normandy 1944 is the latest in Ted S. Raicer's Dark Valley WWII operational series that began with The Dark Valley: The East Front Campaign 1941-45. The game uses a chit-pull activation system that determines both the order and type of each sides' actions during the game's ten action-packed turns. The Dark Summer: Normandy 1944 covers the Allied invasion of northern France from June 6, 1944 to August 21, 1944. A two-player game, it also plays very well solitaire.

The single map extends from just south of Cherbourg (itself covered by a Cherbourg Box) southwest to Avranches and southeast to Alencon, allowing players to recreate the entire campaign from D-Day to the closing of the Falaise gap in late August. Units are mostly regiment/brigades, with a few battalions, but German mechanized forces are presented as operational kampfgruppen.

A complete game of The Dark Summer: Normandy 1944 include:
  • One map sheet (22" × 34")
  • Two countersheets
  • Three player aid cards
  • Rulebook
  • Playbook
  • One six-sided die
