Texas Flood MTO (id:#61404)
(ASL Action Pack # 8 Roads Through Rome ID:AP77)
Designer: Gary Fortenberry
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The Americans field more than 40 squads, almost 90 percent of which are Green! The Germans with less, albeit better quality, Infantry have a lot to accomplish. The scenario is based on the destruction of the “T-Patchers” of the 2nd Battalion, 143rd Infantry Regiment near Persano on 13 September. The inexperienced GIs were wholly unprepared for the onslaught of Panzer-Division 16 and Panzergrenadier-Division 29. The Germans struck just as the attack on the tobacco factory on the opposite bank of the Sele River was heating up.
Attacker: German (Kampfgruppe Kleine-Limburg, Panzergrenadier-Division 29)
Defender: American (3th Infantry Division, 189th and 158th Field Artillery Battalion, Battery B, 27th Armored Field Artillery, 636th Tank Destroyer Battalion and Company A, 751st Tank Battalion)

2019-03-17(D) Ulric Schwela vs Lorenzo Marinaro American winEven giving the Germans the balance didn't make any difference, as the key difficulties for the Germans were American defensive FP as well as the American OBA blocking the northwestern approaches. The German had lost four of his best AFV by turn three, another three SPW had succumbed to MTR/MMG/BAZ fire, while infantry casualties were mounting fast. American casualties were limited to the AT Guns and a couple of green squads. One thing was clear: the German needs to move and move fast to capture those buildings, and can't go toe-to-toe with e.g. Americans in foxholes behind grain as they're too well protected and up close the Germans get whacked. It looked very difficult for the German.
2018-07-22(D) Gordon Jupp vs Nick Holmshaw American winPlayed this over a weekend, you need a fair bit of time for it! Really good fun, lots of toys and options for both sides. My foward Company did an amazing job and held the German advance preventing the buildings on bd 44 from being captured....
2014-05-13(D) Lee Bray vs German winI was attracted to this scenario as it looked different and I wasn't wrong! The terrain is interesting and it pits a sizeable but green US force against well-equipped and seasoned Germans. I had the US, but I think it may have been a little beyond my skill level as disaster followed disaster, seasoned by my own ineptitude and some poor luck! The US have restricted setup areas which coupled with their fragility - and they are very fragile - made me feel I didn't have many options. However, I missed the one chance of mobility I had to withdraw the HQ coy from the river crossing to make some sort of stand in the Bd 3a village. In the end I simply stood firm and ended up being defeated in detail. The German OBA kept coming which didn't help matters and I kept missing subtle LOS to the detriment of my vehicles! Even so I was clinging onto the single hex stone building on the river edge by turn 9 when my Personal Morale finally snapped and I conceded after two of my remaining weapons malfunctioned. I received a thorough drubbing and felt bruised after this one - which explains my low enjoyment rating. However, I suspect Im missing something and I'd play it again!
2014-04-12(A) Jesus Pie vs Don Holland American winVery fun scenario, with a lot of options for both sides. I had options until the last turn, but Don's superb defense made impossible to capture the last buildings.
2013-08-21(A) Richard Carter vs Kevin Klausmeyer German winKevin conceded in midgame. I was making a good attack on most of his positions. I think it may have still been close in the endgame but I had been able to route most of american force. Germans must really push hard and fast into multiple areas. I had a lot of fun but it really takes a PMC for the US player if he does not do a lot of damage early on
