Designer: Don Greenwood
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
An ad hoc group of roughly two parachute companies under Lt. Colonel Shanley were stopped cold on their drive toward the bridge at Pont L’Abbe. They fell back to high ground overlooking the Chef-Du-Pont crossing. The key element of the position was a standing patrol in a farm and road junction, blocking the road from the west to the bridge. At dawn on June 8th, the Germans made their most determined effort to take it. . .

2018-06-18(D) Jeff B vs John Malaska American winGermans tried a pincer maneuver, but made the mistake of moving too often in stacks. This backfired immediately when they lost 2 squads and their best leader to the MMG. Germans did break the mortar firer early however and this left the Americans with a bit of a hole in their defense. It was re-manned a couple turns later, only to see this half squad break as well. An intrepid 8-0 eventually picked it up and busted a flanking German squad. Meanwhile the German assault was foundering, and it certainly didn't help when the American reinforcements arrived on time. By the middle of Turn 7 there was not a single German unit left.
2018-05-04(A) Scott Sherer vs D. Bruce Weston American winCame down to the final CC roll on the last turn. The Germans had taken all four buildings but could not sufficiently interdict the American reinforcements. The Americans got a paratrooper squad into one of the buildings for CC against a 467 German squad. The 3-2 CC went the American way to give them one building, and counting up the CVP gave them the 13-11 edge and the victory. Fun scenario with both sides attacking at different points in the game.
2017-09-26(A) Nick Rusch vs Mark Sockwell In progressPBeM - first game in a very long time.
2017-08-12(D) David Garvin vs Mark Evans American win
