The fight for Mézière-sous-Ballon started the Normandy campaign for the French 2ème Division Blindée. With the U.S. 15th Army Corps, it was part of the southern move to encircle the Germans in the Falaise Cauldron. On the 10th of August 1944, the first elements of Groupe Minjonnet met a strong and well-concealed German force from the just arrived 9.Panzer-Division in the woods and bocage near the hamlet of les Sablons just before arriving in Mézière-sous-Ballon.

Clarification: Either you make a breakthrough with a sizeable force and the losses are not very important or you make a mre cautious advance that can be called a victory only if it doesn't cost you to much losses. So, the CVP cap is only for the building control VC.Lionel Colin on Gamesquad

2018-01-03(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Federico Corso German winEvery veteran ASL player should seriusly consider to play this scenario. It's not for the faint of heart, my German opponent consider throwing the towel more than one time, I'm myself not the towel throwing type, but I consedered my situation hopeless more than one time. Yet we continued playing until the very end, when some decisive dice rolls were made, it went down to the last rolls but it was 50/50 stuff. Great scenario from a scenario designer that I admire. Well done Lionel. Cannot wait to put another one of yours onto the gaming table.
