AmericanGerman (SS)
Colonel Reuben Tucker personally appealed to General Gavin to allow his 504th Regiment to attack Cheneux. Friendly civilians had reported a large column of German vehicles, including tanks, encamped there. Normally an American infantry regiment would request a battalion of armor for support before making such an assault, but Colonel Tucker had an ace up his sleeve. His men had recently captured a whole truckload of panzerfausts, had practiced with them, and now were ready to use them on the enemy. Combined with the early arrival of the latest model of bazooka, Tucker figured his force was strong enough to carry out the assault alone.

2018-02-26(D) Jeff B vs Phil Wentworth German (SS) winAmericans dodged bullets early when the hidden gun blasted the 10-2 and stack and came away with only a broken squad. Unfortunately for them during the German PFPh the same gun obliterated the stack with a multiple KIA. Turn 2 saw them continue their eastern flanking maneuver while another force crept forward up the middle. The M36 wisely positioned itself to make the German attempt to protect the northern building difficult. Turn 3 saw the Germans generate the first of their three heroes, but the eastern flanking Amis were coming dangerously close to their objective, while the M36 still kept the Germans at bay. Turn 4 saw the Germans go on an incredible ROF tear. Not with the HMG, but the MMG (which happened to be directed by the 9-2). The flanking Amis had reached the doorsteps of the northern building, and both sides lost a squad to FTR in the close confines. Meanwhile two leaders were going mano-a-mano in the woods in melee. The Germans finally braved moving some men toward the building, and repositioned the Whirlwind as cover there for added measure. Turn 5 saw the one Ami squad up north bust all but one half squad (who generated another hero), but he couldn't survive the return fire. Down to trying to desperately rush the middle building, the Americans were shredded to a man on their last turn. Great game and fun opponent.
2017-08-10(A) David Garvin vs Jeff Donigian American win
2017-06-28(D) James Lowry vs Tom Arnold American win
2016-12-17(A) Allen Evenson vs Richard Jenulis German (SS) winAmerican Turn 5 a US squad and 9-0 leader was able to get into CC in the O10 building concealed. They successfully ambushed the single German SS squad needing a 6 or less to win the game... It didn't happen. I went on to lose the game. Fun Scenario though.
