They were chased off the continent at Dunkirk. Now, several years later, the British are headed back. D-Day was the largest amphibious assault in history and established a new foothold in France. It marked the beginning of a new chapter in the WWII narrative and you can recreate it with some new D-Day British available for Flames of War from Battlefront.
Stalingrad was one of the most brutal conflicts during WWII. The close, street-to-street fighting made the use of snipers an everyday issue for both sides. With endless places to hide, a sniper could pin down entire sections of enemy forces or take out key members of the opposing force. In this article, Warlord Games takes a look at snipers in Bolt Action and specifically the Stalingrad book.
From across the sea, the largest invasion force ever created is making its way to France. It's D-Day and the Germans are about to find out just what the Allies have been up to over on the Southern coast of Britain. The floatilla is almost there, and they're almost on your tabletops too. Battlefront has started taking pre-orders for new D-Day British for Flames of War.
Hitler: We must take Stalingrad at any cost.
Stalin: We must defend Stalingrad at any cost.

Soon, you'll be able to recreate the harrowing street-by-street fighting on your tabletops with the Stalingrad Campaign book for Bolt Action.
With the Luftwaffe straffing down from overhead, the Allies at Dunkirk had to make a hasty retreat, getting onto whatever could float to try and leave the continent and escape to Britain.

WWII did not get off to a good start for the Allies. The combined armies of France, Britain, and Belgium were chased all the way to the sea where they had to perform a daring escape on the shores of Dunkirk. In this new scenario for Bolt Action, players take on the role of these opposing forces, the Allies working to get as many men to safety while the Germans are trying to wipe them out completely.
Warlord Games has a new scenario out for Blood Red Skies. The beginning of WWII saw the Allies being chased by rapidly-advancing German forces as they tried to make it out to the coast. Once there, the Allies had to form a very hasty retreat at the beaches of Dunkirk while the Luftwaffe attacked from above. In this scenario, you can replay that harrowing ordeal on your tabletops.
