The game tells about the advance of the British and Canadian forces in the area of the city of Caen in 1944 after landing in Normandy (Operation Charnwood). As always, you can plan and command at a strategic, turn-based level and in real time on the battlefields. A large assortment of English and German equipment (Churchill, Cromwell, Firefly, Sherman, Stuart tanks, Panther, Tiger, Stug, and Mk.IV tanks) and infantry units is included.
As in Panthers in the Fog, Close Combat: Gateway to Caen will have updated 32-bit graphics and all new effects. Over 30 new battle maps. The historical names of regiments and battalions. Support for naval artillery for allies.
Operation Epsom, also known as the first battle of Odon, is an offensive operation by British forces conducted from June 26 to 30, 1944, as part of the Norman Operation.
During the offensive, it was planned to bypass the flank and capture the city of Kahn, controlled by German troops, the main target of the Allies in the early stages of the invasion of northwestern Europe.
The operation began at the beginning of the day on June 26, after preliminary attacks carried out to ensure the security of the main routes of advancement. The formations of the 15th (Scottish) Infantry Division went on the offensive following the artillery fire advancing forward. Most of the operation was carried out with rather irregular support from the air, as raids by British bombers were canceled due to bad weather conditions. With the support of tanks from the 31st Tank Brigade, the infantrymen of the 15th Division advanced significantly and, by the end of the first day of the operation, broke through most of the line of German fortifications, despite the fact that some difficulties remained in protecting the flanks of the main offensive route. After heavy fighting, which lasted two days, managed to capture the bridgehead on the German coast of Odon. In addition, efforts were made to expand the bridgehead by capturing strategically important points around the ledge and involving troops of the 46th (Wessex) infantry division. After powerful German counterattacks, part of the troops on the other side of the river was recalled, and the operation came to an end.
