In early May 1940, the war clouds that started in Poland the previous year blew into France and the Lower Countries as the Germans cross the border thus ending the period known as "The Phony War". With the opening of hostilities the Franco-British Armies executed their pre-war plan and marched into central Belgium to meet the enemy and to re-fight the First World War. The Germans however had devised a new attack. A bold and risky plan to push the bulk of their mobile forces through the Ardennes Forest, outflank the Allied forces and pin them to the coast. Will the German Panzer Divisions be able to duplicate this brilliant maneuver and this time defeat the Allies before the Army can be evacuated at Dunkerque? Or will the Allies rescue the situation like they did on the Marne River in 1914?
