Summary

From Devil Pig Games' web site:

1944. The shadow of Cthulhu looms over Normandy…

The Normandy countryside in this remarkable summer of 1944… “I’ll never forget the people I met braving those angry skies; I remember well as the shadows fell, the light of hope in their eyes.” You know the song…

However, the course of the story is about to change radically.

While the Allies were thinking they would only come across simple, but formidable German soldiers, a new menace burst from the heart of the woods. The fanatics of the Black Sun and their acolytes are preparing to unleash a demonic force on the battlefields of Normandy.

Only a battalion of Rangers and a handful of heroes stand against these demented magicians. Will you thwart the evil plans of the Reich’s sorcerers? Or would you rather plunge humanity into an endless era of despair?

When Achtung! Cthulhu meets Heroes of Normandie, the result is a wargame of explosive, unprecedented adventure!
