Camp Cromwell 02/12/06

Maharajah 2006 Preliminary Final 2

Nick's US Inf defending a Breakthrough v. Chris' DAK Panzer
Tunisia terrain, Germans attacking into a fairly clear quarter.

Chris' army was small but mobile. He put 3 small panzer platoons in reserve. Another small Panzer, 88's & Lorraine Scheppers kept the pressure on the other front.
Nick had Shermans, M10s, 2xA/tank guns, AA, 105s & 2 infantry. He rushed an infantry platoon towards the rear objective but it suffered heavily from air attack & then the early arrival of the reserve panzers. The M10s came out of ambush & moved up to face the reserves. The Shermans were late arriving & then Nick allowed them to be distracted by the Panzers in the centre. The M10s lost their duel with the MkIV*s. The infantry disputing the objective were mown down by the Panzers & the Shermans were too far away. The German flank force held the objective uncontested on turn 6.
