|This alternative reinforcement schedule drops the Polish Parachute brigade south of the Arnhem bridge on Day 1.|
In the chapter covering the 1st Airborne Division drop at Arnhem, Neillands suggests that a Day 1 drop of a parachute brigade south of the bridge might have given the Allies the bridge they needed over the Rhine regardless of the German forces in the Arnhem area.
To test this hypothesis I loaded up the Command Ops: Highway to the Reich game and amended the "Red Devils over Arnhem" scenario. I have changed the "Historical" reinforcement schedule in this version of the scenario and given the Polish Parachute brigade a series of Day 1 drops in and around Driel.
To test this hypothesis for yourself, you can download the scenario file "Red Devils over Arnhem - Alt" for Command Ops HERE.
NOTE: This is for Command Ops and not Command Ops 2. Place the file in the scenarios folder for HTTR.
