First up I need to drive over these Volkstum manning the barricade
Oh dear they have panzerfausts!
I brought up the Pershings and blasted my way through.
End of turn 2. Progress is slow and there are only eight turns.
A command blunder didn't help.
And yes, with panzerfausts.
End of Turn 3.
Command Blunder sets me back.
This was the end of Turn 5.
But the tanks are through.
We approach the bridge.
The infantry are still stalled in the town.
The Germans needed a double six to blow the bridge...
The view from the other side.
My eighth and final turn ended with another command blunder (rolling a double six). That made three. I did have one really good run of luck when I got the tanks through the town and shot up the bridge defenders, but then the bridge blew. I was too slow getting up the infantry.
Great little scenario.
I forgot to acknowledge the source of the US forces. Thanks Mark Woods for leaving your troops with Richard. They did you proud.
All the other kit and terrain is form Richard's collection, including the Pershings.
