Striking from the sea, most often from the dark, the army and naval Commandos caused great apprehension to German sentries and garrisons all over occupied Europe in their daring hit and run raids. The brainchild of Winston Churchill himself who had seen the damage Boer commandos could do to a static defensive force at first hand.
This elite force was Britain's only viable way of taking a land war to the all conquering German army, who had thought themselves safe from Britain's land forces. Striking fear into the German army and proving a thorn in Hitler's side, the Commandos were consummate raiders. All Commandos were volunteers and included some of Britain's most extraordinary characters, often strange in character, but men who were eager to stop the Nazi menace at all costs. So feared and loathed by the Germans, Adolf Hitler ordered that all captured Commandos were to be summarily shot.

Recreate World War II combat on a tabletop using dice, model troops, tanks and the rules constructed by Bolt Action against one or more opponents.
Each opposing side will also require painted model troops, representing the soldiers, guns and tanks of your chosen armies.
Tabletop encounters take place according to twelve closely defined battle scenarios that explain how forces are deployed and how victory is achieved.
All that remains is for players to pit their wits against each other as they enact just one small part of one of the greatest conflicts in history—World War II.
Build, paint and play! The construction and painting of the models and watching them come to life are just as much fun as the game itself!
