Belgian Blitzkrieg ETO (id:#62908)
(ASL Journal #12 ID:J182)
Designer: Lionel Colin
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
On 27 May, the Germans renewed their offensive on the Lys River line. The Belgian 11ème division d’infanterie was unable to withstand the German attack, and a gap appeared in the Belgian lines. The only reserves available were the Groupement Morel de Westgaver consisting of two carabiniers cyclistes regiments and some AFV from the chasseurs d’cheval. This group was tasked to close the gap near the village of Knesselare to allow the 11ème DI to regroup. German Heinkel bombers had severely punished the village, destroying the church and rubbling or setting fire to much of the rest. Forward elements of the group pushed through the village just in time to delay the German advance guard, and heavy fighting quickly erupted.

2017-07-22(A) David Ramsey vs Martin Barker Belgian winWhat a great scenario! Options galore for both players, tactics and meaningful decisions required for both players throughout the game. My Belgians managed to hold on to the first building despite the German onslaught but there was play in the game until the end with a token force managing to get behind the Belgians to wreak havoc. The cycles played their part and saved the building but the Germans were only a good CC roll away from winning a great game.
2017-06-15(D) Jason Wert vs Mike Augustine Belgian winVery epic game with lots going on. Played with the Belgian balance based on some reviews and it seemed well needed. Germans didnt go for Turn 2 rush and bypassed to top of board and played for Village while reducing the forward stronghold. Belgians did very fine withdrawal and managed to create a stiff fight in final house. Last CC phase spelled it out, with the Germans coming one location short. Great scenario and match
2017-04-23(A) Rich Weiley vs Dave Wilson Belgian winHeld on for a win as the Belgians. Held the Z6 building throughout the game with the help of the AT gun and the 9-1 directed MMG. The German turn 3 reinforcements bypassed Z6 and headed for the main village where I had only two and a half squads anxiously waiting on the reinforcements. The attackers drove out the garrison of the N5 building and contested the G4 and J6 buildings but the counter attacking force eliminated the Germans in the former and reinforced the garrison of the latter, putting victory out of reach for my opponent. An excellent scenario with high replay value.
2017-04-22(A) Jeff B vs Steve Etzelmueller German winI must be missing something because I don't see the Belgians standing much of a chance in this one. They are forced to heavily defend the forward building to prevent a quick German victory, but if the Germans send a token force to clear it and the rest press forward the Belgians won't be able to extract the forward defenders in time and they will be caught between a rock (the pressing Germans) and a hard place (German reinforcements). Reinforcements will probably end up being a turn too late to prevent a toppling of the next building, and then they will never get it back.
