|Peter Player the Germans. I played the US Parkas and Tim Played 30 Corps. |
Pete Set up first and selected 2 20mm FLAK wagons as his option.
|I had 2 Platoons to cross the river and capture the far end of the bridge.|
here my troops move forward with canvas boats and a Sherman in support.
|Fearing Tim would not push for the bridge too much |
because I was a little scared of crossing the river in Canvas boats with 2
Flak Wagons defending the river.
I sent 1 of my platoons into the town.
|Peter was stopping Tim from advancing |
so I managed to close assault one of the Town Squares.
It was a success, but a costly one.
|The British get gunned down as they approach the town.|
I said at the start that Tim needed to put a tank in that square.
Yes it would have made it vulnerable to Paserfausts
BUT the square would at least be Partial cover.
As you can see he did not.
|Tim Rushes this side of the bridge and captures one end.|
|The last move of the game (we were on a countdown clock)|
Tim rushes a lone Sherman towards the far end of the bridge.
But it is too little to late.
Over all it was a good fun game and Peter did play well while I dithered and worried about troop losses. While it is easy to point the figure at other players, IF I had just gone for it and gotten both Platoons across the river a different game would have resulted.
But overall Fun.
The big thing I did muck up though was when I left my house in the morning I took my box of Normal US troops and left my Paras at home. (A slap head moment in the car when I realised) so we played with the US troops acting as Paras. Other than me pointing it out I do not think anyone would have noticed. So I think I would have gotten away with it. But I put my hands up and admit I actually forgot 5 different things on the way to that show. The troops being one of them.
