This battle, again using the fantastic Battlegroup ruleset, turned into a slugging match with both sides trying to land the knock out blow. The French destroyed the German AT guns early on and the Panzer IVs weren’t quite up to the task of punching though the heavy French armour. On the other side of things, the German infantry were both aggressive and massively more effective than the French. This battle went down to the wire, with the French tanks just about securing a win.
French success here has bought time in Court St Etienne to blow the bridges across the Dyle. Next we move on to Court St Etienne itself for what is likely to be a vicious street by street, house by house battle.
Until next time,
