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.

2018-12-29(A) Jonathan Kapleau vs Lewonski, Vince German win
2018-09-29(A) Louis Langdeau vs Andrew S French winDon't remember much about this one. There was some hilarious berserk troops, with a wounded leader shambling after enemy troops shouting invective. Other than that, I remember having a good amount of troops left over for my final run into the end zone as the French. Andy had a few setup mistakes due to lack of familiarity with foxholes, so it wasn't a totally even playing.
2018-05-26(D) B S vs Jan French winTried to take buildings before French and was unsuccessful. My screening line fell too quickly.
2018-05-24(D) Pieter Van Innis vs Peter Hofland French winAmazing game. Came down to the last DR. As the Germans I decided to try and prevent the 3ème compagnie from reaching the farm. I was doing just fine and had the streets surrounding the farm pretty much covered. But then in the last turn we had a wind change DR of 2 and the smoke from the blazes started drifting and covered the approach with smoke. This allowed the French to reach the farm. We had a blast playing this scenario. For both the attacker and the defender their are some different viable approaches. Highly recommended scenario.
2018-03-25(D) Andy Beaton vs Jack Dempsey German winFrench got caught moving in stacks and took too many casualties to get past the German foxhole line. The German assault on the farm was a total failure but they did prevent the French from getting any reinforcements there.
