Date published: 1/1/1977

Designed by: Jay Nelson

Developed by: Irad Hardy

Data: A company-level simulation of the Market Garden operation, from the paratroop drops to the evacuation across the Rhine at Arnhem. The four maps detail the "corridor" and prove the point that it really was a 'Bridge Too Far.' 2000 counters, four maps, and lots of combat.

Comments:

The first notices were about the rules. When the errata became the size of a normal game's rulebook, SPI re-wrote the original rules and offered them to any owner of the game. Proof you own the original? They requested the cover of the original rules. Thus today you will find first edition Flat Pack copies of HTTR with two rule books - one second edition, and one missing a cover.

But for the players who pushed on, the game was a reward. Balanced? Not necessarily. Neither was the original battle. But detailed? Exciting? Oh yes.
