This battle occurred at the end of the second turn in our campaign. The was a critical battle for the Germans as the German CinC Jokull had ordered his panzer led breakthrough forces to turn about and expand the salient they had made. If they failed in the battle, the German supply lines would be exposed to British attacks when the initiative shifted to the British in the third turn of the campaign.

In this game our group member Charles M, played the attacking German forces.

On the German right, the British eliminate a German infantry platoon.

Image
The British seize the initiative on the German right, advancing gap they opened up.

Image
German A7Vs start to push back the British right and knock the British forces below half strength, but is it too late?

Image
The British Intelligence Officer recommends the British take advantage of weakened Germ units facing the British left and go on the offensive!

Image
The "defending" British actually push forward to seize an objective to win the game!

The was a very bloody and very close fight. The British win came down to a single die roll to pass a company morale check and win by staying in the field and holding he German right objective or by losing through a total collapse of company morale. Fortune though favors the British and the deny the Germans the opportunity to expand their salient.

Image
These are the teams that were destroyed during the battle, far more than are actually left on he table at the battles' end!

Image
The battlefield at game's end. Very "empty!"

Image
After are hard day's fight, the British Intelligence Officer is worn out!

So the British hold on with a 4:3 win in one of the closest and bloodiest Flames of War game I have ever seen!
