Mission Boston is a World War II paratrooper sandbox playset. It is based on the 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment’s drop into occupied France during D-Day. Players will play a stick (squad) of paratroopers within the 508th. They will drop into Normandy with a crushing weight of orders: seize important bridges, prepare landing grounds for glider infantry, destroy targets of opportunity, and in general pave the way for the beach assault that’s coming in about four hours. In real life, the 508th was scattered across the French countryside. On the first night, they achieved noneof their ambitious objectives while suffering substantial casualties.This scenario offers no opportunity to change this outcome.
