Some days into the Warsaw Pact’s assault on Western Europe, NATO forces ‘pocketed’ by the initial enemy attack have struck South. To hamper enemy forces being redeployed your force was helicoptered in last night. Enemy forces in at least battalion strength are expected from the west (point A) moving to the east. So far you have prepared the bridge for demolition and arranged the materials for a roadblock (D) The roadblock is not yet in position.. Your forces may deploy anywhere in the area bounded by line E and may be dug in.
