Strap in and dive deep into one of World War II’s most prolonged (and somewhat overlooked) operations: the Siege of Dunkirk.

Keep reading to find out everything that is to know about Nemesis: Siege of Dunkirk.
What does Nemesis: Siege of Dunkrik bring?
Nemesis: Siege of Dunkirk centers on a long-running campaign, far behind the front, that began in September 1944 but only finished after World War II. The remarkable Allied siege of Axis-held Dunkirk on the French coast of the English Channel.
Tasked with holding on to the critical port of Dunkirk, Axis Festung Dunkirchen
kept up the fight until the war’s end. Unlike similarly surrounded formations, the motley German battlegroup kept up high morale and aggressivity, allowing commanders to deploy elite Stosstruppen and Jagdkampf raiders. The true strength of the division lies in its powerful artillery, support, and AA units, from Soviet-made Flak 31(r) 88mm to emplaced aircraft guns Erdkampflafette 43 and captured French K 419(f) 155mm guns. Festung Dunkirchen excels in defensive combat.
The Czechoslovak Independent Armoured Brigade Group
(CIABG) was formed by Czechoslovakian troops who got their first taste of combat at Dunkirk in 1944. Augmented by British, Canadian and Free French units, including FFO Fusiliers-Marins assault scouts, the CIABG can call on a wide array of armored vehicles, from the new recon Humber LRC Mk. III to the Cromwell VII and up-armored Cromwell VIII. Strong artillery and AA forces, even siege guns, such as the BL 7,2-inch 182, 9mm, can be deployed. The CIABG can field an impressive selection of armor on the battlefield.
We also take this opportunity to express our gratitude to community members Libik
& Skautz CZ who provided invaluable help with the Czech & Slovak translations.
