August 19th 1942 was the day that the Canadian Second Infantry Division was hit severely with the grim reality of the Second World War, having been kept out of the frontlines until that moment. The division had been training since mid May 1942 for an amphibious landing operation and were considered ready for Operation Jubilee, but were they really? Can you do better and overcome the beach defenses and accomplish the historical tasks?

The Rhineland '45 mod takes you to the Allied offensive to clear the area between the rivers Meuse and Rhine, from the Dutch-German border near Nijmegen in the north and the river Rur in the south, in February and March 1945. It depicts operations Veritable and Blockbuster in the Commonwealth forces sector in the north and operation Grenade in the south, fought by the Americans.

The Germans were caught in a pincer movement and were heavily outnumbered.

The Italian landscape along its north-eastern coast is carved by ravines, gullies and steep slopes. These natural barriers were used by the Germans to great effect in their strategic defense. In front of Ortona, two opposing forces had just arrived at the river Moro: the 1st Canadian Infantry Division and the 90th Panzergrenadier Division. The impending clash would be an opportunity for both formations to prove their worth.

Capturing the Belgian port of Antwerp intact in September 1944 was a phyrric victory due to its disadvantageous location at the mouth of the river Scheldt. The port was separated from the North sea by the West-Scheldt estuary, both banks of which were still under control of German occupation forces that were well entrenched in Atlantik Wall bunkers and had heavy artillery guns dialed in on the waterway.

In October, the Canadians were ordered to clear both banks of the West-Scheldt and were in for an arduous and exhausting struggle.
