This was wonderful. Who said the French couldn't or wouldn't
fight? Great looking game, sound scenario, well painted
figs,vehicles and buildings. And thanks for using small words
in your AAR! ;-) Look forward to your next ones.

Great fight, Joe, thanks for posting! The table and troops really look great, and I love early war fights, but I'm really curious about the subject matter.

That is, I found it very interesting that you chose to roll up and follow a French company; what's your overall plan? They get evacuated at Dunkirk, go to North Africa to fight at Bir Hakiem, then land in southern France to fight in Alsace? Gotta think big! ;)

Thank you both. Sam, my new goal with writing is, "no marine left behind".
Jack, that is what you would do because you have a lot more energy than me. I will be lucky if I can get these guys through the fall of France! I did paint up a new Capt Moulin figure though. : )

Sam – Don't encourage him!

Joe – I was going to start calling you "Low Energy Joe," but I prefer to idolize my heroes, so I believe I shall simply go with "Eclectic Joe," and pretend it's not your low energy, but your butterfly-like attention span, that keeps you from getting to everything you should ;)

And I'm looking forward to seeing the new and improved Capitan Moulin in action!
