Shaun, I think Holland 1940 (Eben Emael, etc) might have the edge over Kreta for rarity, expense, and difficulty. Finding an uncoverted/ unmodified M38 smock, pre-40 date trousers, side lace boots, early bandos, DD helmet, etc, etc....is something maybe only a very small few of us could accomplish. If we pooled items from our collections we might be able to.

I selected Kreta. To me that battle is what the FJs were all about; bold, tough, able to overcome the worst conditions, and still prevail with sheer guts and determination. Italy and Normandy would be my 2nd and 3rd choices.

1940 for me as they were still smelling victory. After this date the losses are too high and makes me sad...

Interesting results so far. I knew Kreta and Normandy were likely to be on top, with Italy behind them. Am surprised that only 1 choose Russia so far.
