Hoping to avoid the nightmare of house-to-house fighting, two battalions were ordered to drive through the heart of Aachen towards the three hills dominating the city to the north. Giving the 2,000 weary defenders no respite, the Americans stepped off at dawn the next day. . .

2016-12-23(D) Gordon Jupp vs Simon Church German winVASL. Good game, Simon took me totally by surprise by attacking strongly down the East flank...On T2 I boxcar'ed both the AA gun (on its first shot!)and one of the HMG. I destroyed them both on subsequent repair attempts. Nearly failed my PMC at this stage. But carried on and then had a good mid game when a lot of US troops were broken and two of the tanks were taken out by a Shrek. On T10 Simon had to try and exit the full 9 squads through an open ground MMG firelane, infantry resid and the threat of an HMG directed by the German 9-2. Didn't quite make it.
