Overview:
Operation Blackcock's plan was for 12th Corps to clear the German 176th and 183rd Infantry Divisions, well dug in with anti-tank guns, from a triangle formed by the rivers Roer, Wurm and Maas. The Division was on the left bank with 131st Brigade attacking northwards to secure Echt, Schilberg and Susteren. The plan was then for 22nd Armoured Brigade to break through north towards Montfort and St. Odilienburg. After the normal problems with traffic congestion the 1/5th Queens advanced, supported by flail tanks and artillery. There then ensued several days of had fighting across canal after canal, through village after village and at St. Joost, they came upon three Companies for German Paratroops, who inflicted heavy casualties on the 8th Hussars and Rifle Brigade. Crocodile flame-thrower tanks were used to help clear them out, but the village had to be taken house by house, with the enemy only withdrawing when the flames got too much for them.

2016-01-17(D) Michael Dorosh vs Colin Emerson German winComplete beat-down, 65 VP to 23 VP. British attacked piecemeal, divided and destroyed in detail.
2016-01-17(A) Colin Emerson vs Michael Dorosh German winInteresting scenario, but I had it put on me. Everything destroyed. Hidden 88's, Hidden squad stack. Overly effective. JagdPz entry on canal board leads to rear entry probing.
2015-12-27(D) Paolo Cariolato vs andrea pagni British winIt's a classic, unfortunately the crocs are a very iffy and powerful asset. They single handed ripped my defences apart. Nice game btw.
2014-08-10(D) Gordon Jupp vs Jeremy Shields German winBoth AT guns managed kills with their first shots but then succumbed to OBA and close assault. But both Crocodiles were destroyed and sufficient delays maent the Brits couldn't achieve enough points. Good game and worth a replay!
2013-03-10(D) mark watson vs Richard Carter German winGermans won by less than 10 points, but all that was left of them was a couple of broken squads and the TDs. One Crocodile was all that remained of the British AFV. Super cool scenario. The British OBA is devastating as are their tanks. The infantry have a hard time, though.
