Historical background

The French assault to retake Fort Douaumont began at 11:50 AM, 22 May. The plan called for a three-pronged attack. On the left, the 36th Infantry Regiment managed to capture the Morchée Trench, but it was costly and the regiment became pinned down and could advance no further. The 74th, on the right, could not make any progress and only the 129th Infantry Regiment in the center made it to the fort. By nightfall, only a small portion of the fort was under French control. The next day, troops from the French 34th Division tried to reinforce the Frenchmen in the fort, but were repulsed. Without support, the French in the fort surrendered.

The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.
