- 1 Light Green Squad Base
- 3 Elite Infantry (Lt. Fitzpatrick, Sgt. Vandenberg and Sgt. Franklin)
- 1 Officer (Capt. Meyers)
Prisoners cannot control the Control Marker on map 7A/9B

Telephone Wires
To assist their American friends, The Maquis must provide some mischief.

- The two Victory Point markers need to be replaced with 2 British control markers (1 point each).

- A Maquis squad located in a hex with a control may spends an action to cut wires. They imediately gain the command points and the control marker is removed. These command points are for the Maquis alone and can be used to immediately buy any card available in the Allied HQ. The card bought can only be used by The Maquis.

Airfield Personnel will not venture more than 2 hexes away from airfield.

- Opel Blitz vehicles are considered Equipment for use by any force. Once used by Paratroopers or Maquis, replace it with the appropriate forces own truck.

Campaign Rules
This is the first scenario of an ongoing campiagn based off of scenarios first presented in FASA's WW2 RPG Behind Enemy Lines. After this scenario, advance the Paratroopers as you would normally through a Campaign Phase. Any survivors of Captain Meyers Squad will be attached to the Paratroopers for the rest of the campaign.

Note: A Jedburgh is a special team of men who drop into occupied territory as an Allied liaison team to work with local French Resistance groups.

How horrible, how fantastic, how incredible it is that we should be digging trenches and trying on gas masks here because of a quarrel in a faraway country between people of whom we know nothing. (1938)
