Battle of Verdun

Needs T&P?: Yes
The area of Verdun has always been important to France, ever since Roman times there have been forts there, and the people of France would rather fight to the death than lose it. The Germans knew this, and wanted to attack Verdun, drawing in the French army and inflicting heavy casualties on them, they knew that even though they were outnumbered, the French would not give up easily and would keep sending men into the meat-grinder. The Germans had much more troops(At the start of the battle, it was 200,000 French versus 1 Million Germans), and used artillery and gas to inflict the maximum casualties and 'Bleed them white'. However, the Germans do not want to be dragged into a battle where they will recive similar casualties to the French, if you can hang on for longenough, the Germans might realise thier folly and withdraw.
simply copy the gas mod over the origianal(back it up first so you can go back to normal whenyou have played the scen.)
Thanks to Probed 1969 for the gas mod

marce61 Very Good, I liked the map very much, and the game play was very good. The use of Red Fort was a nice touch, and I liked the use of the flamethrowers, they would have got annihilated trying to lead a trench assault, but, I liked it anyway.

You took a few liberties, the TANK, too early and too many, Brits 2,000, French, 3800, and THE GERMANS 200, for the whole War.

However, the Biplanes evened this out during game play. Germans didn't use until April 1918, against the Brits.

Great Job
probed1969 Man, this looks familiar. I must be looking at too many WWI scenarios or something.

What's up with spawning German reinforcements BEHIND my lines? Shouldn't they at least EARN that position?

I should've had the option to continue. I was about to chase them back to Berlin when it suddenly ended. I'm unfulfilled. lol

sorry,i meant to include probeds mod for gas, but i forgot lol. i will update it. also sorry about them spawning behind ur lines probed, i had that problem, but i thought id fixed it so that they spawned once theyed captured the positions. also, agree about there being too many ww1 scenarios latly(still hasent balenced alll the ww2 ones though and as im not sure if there had been ANY ww1 untill aobut 3 weeks ago, i dont think its to much of a problem) i had been working on verdun on and off for a while, so i just wanted to get it on the site before i started working on somthing not ww1
probed1969 Well I'm sure there are many WWI buffs out there. I'm just not one of them, so to me it seems like a lot. But you're right. Not many compared to WWII.

Marce does a great job of bringing excitement to WWI scenarios which would be pretty boring otherwise. Hanging around in a muddy trench waiting to be gassed or shelled doesn't sound like much fun to me, (not that any war is fun). It's difficult to do much with this era because of the trench warfare. Maybe that's why you had to add all the tanks, flamethrowers and planes.
wakain I think there wer just 3 ww1 scenarios till 3 weeks ago,but I must say the gameplay of the 1st ww is a lot mor efun than the ww2 till now...
ronman111 in ded wakain i personally think gameplay is much better in the industrial age it was when the first automatic weapons were made. tanks, airplanes,motorized automobiles. any way the game was great rating++5.
