Operation Crossfire may well have been a world first - a wargame played on many tables around the world simultaneously, with two overall commanders basing their decisions on the e-mails sent to them during the game.
This is follow-up video letting you know a bit about how it all went. Describing every detail of the events of the fourteen battles of a corps-level operation is wildly beyond the scope of this video. There were many events such as civilians mobbing the railway station in a desperate attempt to flee, battles to secure or destroy fuel dumps and AA batteries, spies getting arrested by the Gestapo, fierce fighting over strategic hills that overlooked other battlefields, surprise attacks from the air and water, artillery batteries moving up to get within range of specific targets, minefields, bridge-laying tanks, and all that sort of thing.
45 players took part. The German C-in-C was in Australia, others were in Canada, The Netherlands, the USA and of course Britain. At one point, I had more like 130 people saying that they'd be taking part, and I'd like to extend a heart-felt thank-you to all those who dropped out. You made my life so much easier.
