Hitdorf on the Rhine ETO (id:#62813)
(ASL 3a - Yanks (2nd Edition) ID:ASL 202)
See Also: Hitdorf on the Rhine by Avalon Hill
Designer: Unknown
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
As the Third Reich collapsed, many American leaders became bold to the point of recklessness. Often, a daring stroke by a small group of GIs yielded a vast gaggle of demoralized German prisoners. But sometimes the Americans pushed their luck to far and the Germans, like a wounded animal, would lash back with stinging effect. At early dawn, Company A of the 1st Battalion, 504th Parachute Regiment crossed the Rhine and advanced toward the town of Hitdorf. Unfortunately, elements of the 62nd Volksgrenadier Division had just linked up with lingering elements of the 11 Panzer Division, and these Germans were not yet willing to lay down their arms. The landings went easy enough, but as the paratroopers entered the town, they were met by an enemy company that had been rushed to the sector.
Attacker: American (Company A and I, 1st Battalion, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division)

2017-02-22(D) Jeff B vs Scott Sherer German winGreat fun in this attack/counterattack battle. American OBA never had a chance as the radio operator was abandoned by his men in the upper reaches of the 2nd level building and chopped down in CC. German OBA, on the other hand, used harassing fire to great effect in broadly covering the approaches through town that weren't already covered quite nicely by minefields. Germans planted men on the bookend level two hills to limit rout options and deny concealment growth. All of this made for a difficult go for the Americans. Never in a million years did I think the CVP cap would be a concern for them, but at the end they were pushing the limit, which limited how aggressive they could be in their last big push to recapture T4 (which was a hotspot of contention for at least half the game). Once the tanks came on the Germans just had too much muscle to overcome.
