Designer: Unknown
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Northern France had fallen and General Weygand was desperately attempting to form a long along the Somme. Lacking sufficient forces for a continuous front, he decided on a series of combined-arms hedgehogs which he hoped could thwart the German advance. In these hedgehogs, numerous French units would make many a gallant stand. One such place was the Chateau de Quesnoy, which had been fortified by a company of the tough 53rd Infantry Regiment of the 5th Colonial Division. It stood squarely in the path of Rommel’s oncoming 7th Panzer Division. Having literally ridden roughshod over the French Army in the preceding month, the cocky Germans were quite unprepared for the tenacious stand by these black colonial troops.

2015-07-21(A) Stefan Fiedler vs Damon NOrko German winFun oldie with large OOB and many turns. Like oldschool where you gets to movi in for action and do some monouvering before battle starts to get heavy. Germans entered tentatively with recon halfsquads to find Wire, roadblocks etc before entering full force in T2 and T3. Attacked on the flanks with the shcwerpunkt at the eastern edge. Halftracks was used aggressively to close in the 3lvl building east of teh chateu whil a strong diversionary attack was made in teh west tying up defenders. Lost 3 tanks as German but screening infantry quickly supressed enemy units that appeared. I feel the Germans are favoured but CVP can can be nasty and I did get the balance increase CVP cap for German from 40 to 50. HMGs and smart long shot tactics will bleed teh attacker. The rare mini gun SW (the French 37mm SW gun) is powerful and could easily be a major thorn in the German side.
2009-09-22(D) Jeff Waldon vs Peter Rogneholt German winVASL-German gained control of the Chateau on Axis 14 with the French having amassed 47 CVP's. A GREAT GAME!
