2016-12-30(A) Michael Rodgers vs Bruno L'Archeveque Russian winBruno L'Archeveque and I had a second playing of LSSAH14 A BIRD IN THE HAND to see if I could do any better as the German attacker. I did better than him, but still conceded on the German sixth turn (of eight). On paper, the Germans have enough firepower. To use it, however, is difficult because there are only six squads (against nine Russian). The rest of the firepower is towed ATG and soft skin flak half tracks. We cannot see how a competent Russian player could lose this scenario.
2016-12-07(D) Michael Rodgers vs Bruno L'Archeveque Russian winGerman lost two AA HT to the 50mm mortar and two squads to other causes during first three turns. Felt too far behind to continue.
