Operation Dauntless- Rules of Play says:
Operation Dauntless: The Battles for Fontenay and Rauray, France, June 1944 (to give it its full title) is a wargame that covers the actions of the British 49th Infantry Division (a.k.a "The Polar Bears") near Caen during Operation Martlet (called Operation Dauntless by the British at the time of the battle). Opposing these lads are elements of the 12th SS Panzer Division "Hitlerjugend" (Hitler Youth) and Panzer Lehr—elite panzergrenadier units. The goal of the British division is to seize the town of Fontenay, then press onward to secure the high ground near Rauray in time for the impending Operation Epsom, to be launched the next morning.
