    Another game in the Big Battles of Small Units system and the second in the series of the Black Cavalry Battle.

    A great battle is taking place in Normandy. The Polish 1st Armored Division crosses German positions on the Dives river and in a truly cavalry style, moves towards the town of Chambois and the 262 m Hill - Mont Ormel. In this way, the Poles are blocking the only escape route for German castaways locked in the so-called Falaise Pocket.

    The game Hill 262 - Chambois, 19 - 21 August 1944 presents the Allied fights during closing and defending the Falaise Pocket. The main hero is the 1st Armored Division of general Stanis?aw Maczek. In addition, there are American and Canadian units.
    There are 6 scenarios in the game. 4 of them are short clashes to familiarize yourself with the procedures of the system "Great Battles of Small Units". The main subject is the defense of the Allies and German attempts to get out of the pocket. The chaotic organization of the German army in this battle is shown in a simple way. At the beginning of the game a German player chooses battle groups that he will try to move out of the board. The Allied player does not know the opponent's plans. Only during the game it turns out which units appear in the game. Thanks to that every gameplay is different and the game provides a lot of emotions.
