In this well-balanced scenario, the Americans – represented by 2 infantry battalions, supported by a company of Shermans, and off-table 105mm howitzers – had to clear several villages of German defenders – represented by 2 understrength infantry battalions and a couple of Stugs.

The American infantry battalion on the left flank made steady progress in pushing towards their objectives, whilst the battalion on the right flank exhibited one of the most sickening acts of cowardice in the history of Nottingham Wargames Club, when they decided to hide behind cover and refuse to advance against the enemy! This left the Shermans to advance unsupported, resulting in two of them sustaining heavy damage.

Despite this disgraceful display, the German morale eventually cracked and they retired from the battlefield, giving the Americans the win.

Nice looking figures. One of these years, I hope to get my 1/72 guys on the table.
