"Market Garden" is the second module in the critically acclaimed series of WW2 tactical combat simulations and requires the base game, "Combat Mission: Battle for Normandy", upgraded to v2.0 in order to play. If you didn't upgrade CMBN yet, we also offer an attractive Market Garden Bundle which includes the new module as well as the 2.0 Engine Upgrade for only $5 more!

The module & bundle are expected to ship in 4-6 weeks, only a short time after the upcoming anniversary of the real "Operation Market Garden".

Fine print: If you would like to order just the download, please wait until the game is released (in approx. 4-6 weeks). All games ship from our main location in the US, import VAT and other import fees may apply for international customers in addition to the Shipping & Handling charge. When you preorder, your credit card or Paypal account is charged immediately, and not when the item ships. The special $10 discount for preorders means that instead of paying $45/$50 plus S&H for the download & mail delivery after release, you only pay $35/$40 plus S&H. The discount expires after the game is released.

How far is this bridge?

Combat Mission: Market Garden depicts allied Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery's September 1944 dash across Holland in a daring gambit to leap the Rhine river and enter the heartland of Germany itself. Fielding U.S., British and Polish forces, Operation Market Garden was meant to be the lightning stroke which would end the war that year. It included the largest airborne operation seen to that day or since. Market Garden ended in tragedy, though, when the allies failed to capture their final objective, the Rhine river bridge at Arnhem. It was, in the famous words of Lt. General Fredrick "Boy" Browning, a bridge too far.

CM: Market Garden allows the player to recreate Monty's desperate struggles to reach and cross the Rhine in Holland. It is an expansion module to Combat Mission: Battle for Normandy and requires the base game in order to play, upgraded to 2.0! No other modules are required.


New, larger bridges!

For the first time, CM:Market Garden offers detailed, historical, to-scale models of the bridges involved in the Market Garden battles:

  • Arnhem bridge
  • Arnhem railroad bridge
  • Eindhoven bridge
  • Nijmegen bridge

Along with generic large bridges for creating your own fictional battles:

  • Canal bridge
  • Angled bridge
  • Round bridge


New buildings!

New urban buildings, modeled after buildings near the Arnhem and Nijmegen bridges; and windmills!Image

New map tools!

New editor elevation tools, and a new terrain type: dirt footpaths


New Scenarios!

Ranging from tiny to huge and with a varied mix of forces, 14+ standalone scenarios focus on the new units, weapons and vehicles found in the module.


Master Maps!

The 7 "master maps" are huge maps, historically accurate, detailed and thoroughly researched, depicting the main areas around the bridges where most of the fighting happened:

  • Oosterbeek
  • Johana Hoeve
  • Arnhem Road Bridge
  • Oosterhout ( north of Nijmegen)
  • Nijmegen
  • West Nijmegen
  • Elst

These master maps will help scenario designers in creating their own scenarios without the burden of having to create the maps from scratch. The maps can be cut to encompass smaller areas for individual battles.Image
