The Germans were defending a village with river crossing and had a platoon of infantry supported by a mortar section and an mg section, two Pz IV, an 88mm A/T gun, and a 37mm A/T gun.
The Allies (American Rangers) had three shermans, a 17pdr A/T gun, two platoons of infantry with an mg section in support.
As the game was an attack on an unknown defence the Germans started the game hidden from view and the Allies cautiosly approached the bridge from the road and the German right flank across country but things soon started to hot up when the Germans opened fire with their mortars and brought their tanks into play but had to wait until the Shermans got a little closer before knocking on out and immobilizing another leaving one lone tank to close the distance before it could do any damage to the panzers.
The Allied right began to crumble as one squad was pinned down not far from some houses occupied by German infantry and soon were whittled down to a couple of men and forced to withdraw but not before their support had pinned the infantry in the houses and an accurately fired mortar round caused serious damage on the occupants of the houses who also had to withdraw but a support section soon re occupied the ground and fired on the Americans advancing over the bridge.
Eventually the Americans reached the point of no return and were forced to make a fighting withdrawal but not before giving the Germans a bloody nose.
All in all the game worked reasonably well and all players seemed to enjoy having my rules thrust upon them. The game lasted about 21/2-3 hours which was just right for a club night so I think, with a little tweaking, the rules seem to work but I think a little more playtesting is required after a few tweaks here and there.
The map above indicates the playing area, approximately 5'X4' with the Allied deployment zone shown. The Germans were able to use hidden deployment and position their forces anywhere up to the river line from the right hand table edge. The ground was strewn with hedgerows and rough ground to restrict line of sight and provide some cover for the troops on the ground.
