Van Dieman Club 13/08/10
1500 pts LW HTL, Germans defending.
It seems my teaching skills exceeded my generalship this evening. The wall of 11 Shermans looked invincible, especially after they disposed of the Pak 40 ambush with just one loss. But the pause to take out the Paks bought time for the Stugs to come up. The Brit infantry on the left was supposed to outflank the Grenadiers, but 2 HMGs in the town stopped them dead. With some help from the 105s the Stugs gradually whittled the Shermans away and the Brit attack petered out.
