So they are stories of actual people? These houses are all spread across 5 or more CC games.

In this case, an actual person (Maj. Gen. Roy Urquhart) in roughly, relative to St E's, the actual location his 'house arrest' happened. Atomic made some serious effort towards historical accuracy with CC2, even commissioning aerial photos to be taken in the Arnhem area.  Hard to say about the other 'house' VLs you mention. OTOH, the 'house' VLs in PITF were simply plucked from a list of French names.

In August of 2004, Zappi, Homba, Bambam887, RedScorpion and MOOXE all pitched
in to create this Close Combat site. I would to thank all the people who have visited and
found this site to thier liking. I hope you had time to check out some of the great Close Combat
mods and our forums. I'd also like to thank all the members of our volunteer staff that have
helped over the years, and all our users that contributed to this site!
