We decided to do a point defence with Nigel's Germans attacking. I'd like to say it was a close game but it was a complete rout, with Nigel (and his most humble assistant) only managing to destory a US bazooka team in the whole game.
Turn 1: A view across the front line, the objective is on the right. A German half track filled with pioneers has advanced along the road and into the courtyard near the crossroads.
A squad of paras on the far side of the crossroads.
A second German squad advances alongside the road towards the crossroads.
Turn 3: The stug arrives.
The stug advances and takes cover behind a building. It faces off vs a 57mm aT gun, Sherman and the greyhound. Slightly outnumbered it came off second best and is eventually knocked out.
German infantry advance though scrub towards the E-W road.
The infantry debus from the half track and capture a building. Only to be routed in hand to hand. Kent managed 5-6 kills vs the Germans 3 and the survivors surrendered. The first of Kent's uber-successful assaults.
The Sherman covers the Greyhound.
Kent pointing out his next victims- those guys there are dead!
The greyhound knocks out the 251. Grrrr.
The Americans destroyed about 6 of our squads, gun teams and vehicles for the loss of a bazooka team- so was "slightly" one sided.
We'll rerun it next week or so and see if the American can have better success attacking.
Good game guys, better luck next time Nige.
