Operation Blockbuster the conclusion of Veritable


With the First Canadian Army in firm control of Goch, Calcar has been outflanked. Once Calcar is in Allied hands Lt General Simonds will exploit down the Calcar-Xantan railway toward the Hochwald Layback.
Once through the Hochwald, Xantan will be taken by an armoured exploitation also directed at Wesel.
The US Ninth Army has launched Operation Grenade and have pushed 22 battalions across the Roer, they are meeting weak resistance and will link up with the 1st CA at Geldern within a few days.

I agree Geoff is a master of dio's. And his camera work is superb. He really captures the moment. The placeing, choice of figures, along with the vehicles brings the dio to life

Wonderful set up, great individual pieces, very nice images all add up to an amazing dio.
The busy, hustle and bustle urban look is very hard to achieve, and here it is mastered.
Congratulations!
