German (SS)American
During the German Ardennes offensive, Colonel Peiperís kampfgruppe from the 1st SS Panzer Division had quick victories which had taken them close to the Meuse River bridges but they had completely run out of fuel. The remaining assault elements of the SS Panzer Division launched an attack to reach Peiperís stalled kampfgruppe. The main German thrust came at a point south of Trois Ponts on the Salm River. There, a company of the 82nd Airborne Division had established a small bridgehead on the cliffs across the river.

2017-10-08(A) Jeff B vs Shaun Andrews German (SS) winSS entered where expected and pushed the American setup line on Turn 1. Turn 2 saw the Amis spring a nasty front line HIP trap but, after some awful rolling, they were the ones who ended up trapped. SS pushed forward while the American OBA was always just a hex away from wreaking havoc. Turn 4 was a major turning point though when a throwaway 1+1 shot broke the radio operator. He had nowhere to rout and was eventually eliminated. This, and the fact that the Americans averaged 8.5/roll vs the SS 5.5/roll, sealed the deal.
