9) Allowed Forces:

"Hell's Highway", "A Bridge Too Far" Books

Grenadier Guards PDF

11th Armoured Division PDF

Glider Rifle Company PDF

New Market Garden Compilations (due 12JAN13). This may extend to Canadian/British Ground Forces/Commando operating in the Scheldt Esturay.

Valid forces made from other books - If you feel you can construct a list valid for the Operation Market Garden using another official LW list, contact the Tournament Organizer for clearance to use it. It will require a "History" justification document that explains why this list "fits" in with the theme of this event.

Some possible examples of this would include:
a) 107th Panzer Brigade force using the “LW East Front Panzer Brigade PDF” omitting items that would not be present in Market Garden like the naval fire support.
b) Easy Company from “Nuts” with the Band of Brothers heroes but leaving out the non-Para/Glider support options.
c) British 7th Armoured Division List from “Turning Tide.”
