|On my left I deployed FJs, 2cm FlaK guns, and the 7.5cm PaKs.
|More FJs, HQ, and StuGs on the right. SS in ambush.
|Dave had several platoons on the bridge approach, and his HQ began moving through the woods next to it. My StuGs close to engage them on Turn One, but to no effect. PaKs and mortars are also ineffective.
|You can see pack howitzers and mortars in the distance, while Dave's Paras moved through the buildings.
|On Turn Two I was forced to pull the PaKs, and the StuGs move a bit closer but don't hit anything. My mortars kill one stand of Dave's mortars.
|Dave's Paras were getting too close by Turn Three so I pulled the StuGs back a bit, and they continued to miss the HQ troops. I pulled the 2cm FlaK. My mortars also fail to do anything.
|Dave fired a bunch of PIATs at my StuGs and bagged one after an assault, forcing the other two back. On my Turn Four the SS deployed their ambush, doing enough damage to break a Para platoon and force it to run.
|It took everything I had to get those Paras to run!
|I also managed to knock out a recon jeep!
|By my Turn Six, more of Dave's Paras have arrived, and another set of assaults sees them forced back, but the SS die to a man.
|With time running out we called it, as I only had my HQ platoon and two stands of FJs left to defend the objective, while Dave had two more platoons of Paras in striking distance and would have been able to take it from me long before Turn Nine.
