Mongoose Publishing have announced that they will be supplying the Bridge Too Far boardgame for Battlefront.

From their website:

Mongoose Publishing is proud to announce we have reached an agreement with Battlefront, makers of Flames of War, to supply their first strategic boardgame, A Bridge Too Far.

The largest airborne operation in history began on a sunny Sunday in September 1944. An entire airborne army was committed in a bold attempt to seize the key bridges leading into the heartland of the German Reich. Over 4,000 Allied aircraft took off from airfields to launch a surprise assault on
German-occupied Holland. The largest airborne operation in history began on a sunny Sunday in September 1944. An entire airborne army was committed in a bold attempt to seize the key bridges leading into the heartland of the German Reich. Over 4,000 Allied aircraft took off from airfields to launch a surprise assault on German-occupied Holland.

1300 British tanks were poised at the Belgian border to follow up this airborne attack. The ultimate goal was to gain a bridgehead at Arnhem over the Rhine River into Germany, in an attempt to end the war by Christmas. Can you capture the bridge at Arnhem or will it prove to be a bridge too far?

Battlefront presents its first ever stand alone strategic boardgame. “A Bridge Too Far” allows you to take control of the action from the “Generals” view to re-fight one of the turning points in the war by leading your army to victory by repulsing the invading force or taking all the bridges. Your army awaits.

Contains Rulebook, 46 Plastic Playing Pieces, Battle Arrows, Dice and Multi-part Gameboard measuring 22″/55cm by 48″/120cm.
