GermanFrench / British
The Belgian town of Nieuport was to anchor the east end of a perimeter to keep the Germans from Dunkirk for as long as possible. Belgian forces had been expected to contribute to the defense,, but King Leopold, without consulting the allies, surrendered to Germany on May 28. This left a vacuum which British and French force raced to fill. Two infantry regiments from the French 60e Division d’Infanterie were ordered to Nieuport but only one arrived. Shortly after the French arrived, a German reconnaissance unit seized the bridge into Nieuport and threatened to unhinge the entire Allied perimeter. A tense battle with the armored cars of the 13th Royal Lancers ensued and British Brigadier Clifton, in charge of the local defense, assembled a scratch force with some World War I-era 18 pounders to stiffen the line.

2018-07-15(A) Jeff B vs Steve Etzelmueller German winGermans led with a sleaze freeze advance and quickly took the first set of buildings. They continued to bully forward, taking the next building along their northern path on Turn 2. An overheating of the French HMG certainly helped the cause. Turn 3 saw the Germans lose an AC to a bounding fire shot from a Morris, but the Brits lost one of their own in exchange. Meanwhile the Germans continued to push forward, taking another building. The next couple turns saw the Germans consolidate for pushes on the two additional buildings needed - W8 and Z3. The remaining British ACs both succumbed to the combined might of Germans small arms and AFVs. The Z3 building fell on Turn 5. Turn 6 saw the Germans jump off their assault on the last bastion of Ally hope. With all but one of their AFVs still in action and a host of infantry there was little doubt they would be successful, and the last turn saw them grab W8 as well as CC6. Overall not a very exciting scenario as slow and steady won the race.
