The Germans clustered the pillboxes against the pond in the center so there was no approach outside of any CA. The Canadian MTR and captured AT gun failed to get smoke on the first turn, making any approach hazardous. The attack was pressed on one side with the defenders having good luck. However, a few Canadians managed to get through the residual and FL so they could enter CC at favorable odds. Once one pillbox was breached, the remaining pillboxes had little recourse. We made a few mistakes on pillbox rules which may have swayed the result. Overall, well played by both sides. A fun short, albeit somewhat one sided scenario.
The Canadians depleted smoke on both the 51 MTR and captured 75L AT Gun in their first shots and initially bungled their close approach to the German's tight-knit bunker system, but eventually pushed through to engage in CC with each of the bunker occupants without having to cross the bunker CAs. The Germans severely bruised the Canadians with an effective fire lane and other residual and, although the Canadians prevailed in all CCs, several were achieved through a mutual misinterpretation of ambush rules in the Canadians favor, so a draw best captures this neat little scrap. A good primer on Pillboxes.
