I have snipped a few excerpts for the readers:
The Close Combat: Last Stand Arnhem Grand Campaign operational area covers the area that the allies historically intended to occupy at the end of “Operation Market Garden”.  Some give and take had to happen between the real life proportions of the geographical operational area and the strategic map proportions to keep a viewable size to the game icons and map areas while minimising empty areas of strategic map as much as possible.  We believe we have achieved a comfortable balance between all the necessary factors.
