Module Information

Maintainer John Edwards [jzedward]


Descent on Crete is a tactical, company level simulation of the largest German airdrop of World War II. The entire scope of the operation is taken in, as players are given the command decisions throughout the operation. Special rules covering the air drop, air strikes, supply, leadership, fatigue, and British Armour are included. Depending on the scenario being played, players gain points for various objectives and for eliminating their opponent's units strength points.

This is a prerelease, and although fully functional, it needs some testing to confirm it behaves, and would benefit hugely from scenarios. Players are welcome to load save games here.

The physical game has lots of status markers; the Vassal has been designed, as far as possible, to remove these and use overlays and changing values. It is hoped this makes it more playable. Digital stacks on Maleme are also smaller.
