A Real Barn Burner ETO (id:#62909)
(ASL Journal #12 ID:J183)
Designer: Lionel Colin
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
In contrast to their comrades to the west, the French Aisne River front held firm against the German attacks in May. The 14éme division d’infanterie, one of the best French units, manned the front bear Rethel. On 30 May, a reconnaissance in force was launched by its 35th Regiment toward the village of Amagne held by the Germans. This attack was successful in pushing back the Germans, and afterwards the French retired to their starting positions south of the Aisne River except for a platoon commanded by Lieutenant Gehin, which remained concealed in an isolated farm. The goal was to lure the Germans into thinking the area was empty of French troops and catch them off-guard in an ambush. The plan worked well initially but the German were soon launching an attack on the farm with two infantry companies, supported by a light AT gun. The barn caught fire, and the fight lasted all night. The morning of 31 May found the encircled platoon still stubbornly repulsing German attacks. At noon, the French launched an attack by 3éme Compagnie to try to rescue the last elements of Gehin’s platoon.

2020-02-11(D) Pascal Boileau vs Serge Doba French winA very nice scenario. German troops hold the line against the French south offensive but were overwhelmed by the French units coming from the North. Many decisive dice rolls during a tremendous game.

2019-05-05(D) Andy Beaton vs Dirk Beijaard French winThe German line crumbled right from the start, but I managed to engineer a mass prison break which put a squad of conscripts and prisoners with an LMG in the way. A French win, but I made him work for it.
