Bray-Dunes, France (included in ww2 modset)Conflict Overview:
Four weeks ago, Hitler ordered the invasion of France. Some two days later, German tanks had crossed the Meuse near Sedan and opened up a gap in the Allied front. Six days after that, they had reached the English Channel.
British, French, Canadian, and Belgian troops have been forced back to Dunkirk by the advancing German army. Nearly all the escape routes to the English Channel have been cut off; a complete and utter disaster looks to be inevitable. We mustn't let Dunkirk fall before serious evacuation has been completed. The newly appointed Prime Minister Winston Churchill has asked for "a miracle of deliverance".
For the last 9 days the rearguard, those tasked with holding the lines alongside Allied forces, have managed to secure enough time to evacuate over 300,000 soldiers. More than ten times the initial hopes. It's now time to get these valiant heroes out of there, and give them their much deserved respite.Recent Events:
Our Battalion, part of the rearguard, has been bounding back to Dunkirk for the last couple of days. Our company is currently on the fighting edge, having been in situe for the last 24 hours. We've seen heavy fighting throughout this time, by air and ground. We've also seen many Allied forces often splintered pass through this area. We don't need to escort them to the beach, as they'll make their own way there, but we should do our best to not inflict casualty on them.
Last night, B company reported they are set in the town of Bray-Dunes. Our company currently situated around Ghyvelde has ordered us to reform our currently staggered platoon. Then when an opening presents itself and they've radioed in, make way to Company HQ on the Eastern side of Ghyvelde. We will be providing security for them around the Square whilst they evacuate the injured, and provide the crucial reinforcements needed at Bray-Dunes.
Battalion command has instructed us to abandon any heavy-equipment when we're required to move, as to not kill our momentum and by extension ourselves and our allies in the region. Should we come by heavy-equipment in situe, its usage is perfectly acceptable. If you are the last infantry to be using it, then its destruction is encouraged but by no means necessary, certainly not at the expense of a single life.
Once the rest of our company makes it to Dray-Brunes, we shall make our way to the beaches past them and find hopefully safe passage home. It's been said that there are civilians operating pleasure craft alongside the Navy helping to extract personnel.Objectives:
1) Reform the platoon, and hold the area.
2) Once an opening presents itself after they've radioed us, make way to provide security for Company Command at the Square on the East side of Ghyvelde.
3) Once ordered to do so, make way via Dray-Brunes to the beach and head for the nearest working boats.Situation Opfor:
