I had a request for a France 40 game (Dunkirk Movie just came out) and a desire to get some French tanks out on the table made me look for a quick and easy scenario. So I stole the Jandrain game from Rob Avery's site. French counterattack by SOMUA S-35s of the 3rd Light Mechanized Division against the panzers of the 3rd Panzer Division on the morning of May 13, 1940. The Panzers had pushed the French Dragoons out of Orp in the morning and were reported to be moving to Jandrain when the French launched the attack by the 1st Cuirassiers.

Very nice report. The end result, IMO, is quite representative of the unconclusive results of these early engagements.
