Grumble Jones March 2016 Scenario GJ030 - "Devil Dogs on Ice"

Remember to open link in a new window to maximize the view. The PDF for this scenario can be downloaded from the The ASL Scenario Archive. (simply search on Grumble Jones or Devil Dogs on Ice)
And always remember, these scenarios are presented for fun only and as a thank you to the readers of my blog.
Design note - this scenario is a hypothetical imagining of the a German invasion of Iceland in 1941 during the time that US Marines were stationed on the island. I have always wanted to see a scenario pitting US Marines vs. SS. Of course this particular scenario uses early war Marines and SS, which is a toned down version of what I could imagine with 1945 Marines going toe to toe with Leibstandarte or Wiking. Perhaps we'll imagine such a scenario at a later date. 

I selected two BFP maps as they best represented the barren landscape of the plateau near Keflavik. Having been to Iceland in 1985, I can confirm that trees are a rarity on the Island. It's certainly been fun researching the involvement of US forces in Iceland.
