Maharajah Night at Nick's
2000 pts on 8x6 tables.
Rich's Canadian Mech
Leigh's 21st Panzer Infantry
No Retreat, German's defending.
Joe's Falschirmjager (MM)
Hasty Assault, German's defending
On the other flank the artillery dueled while the Germans manhandled their Paks forward to help, but that was all a sideshow, the real action was on the US right.
The Jagdpather arraived and kept the Shermans busy for a while, but it was swamped and the attack resumed. The GI's cleared the 2nd platoon with heavy losses but passed morale & held on. The Germasn now had no alternative but to move the centre platoon over to contest. But they were mown down by the massed Shermans before the 88's & 150's could do much damage.
It was a long hard slog past midnight for the US, but with persevance to the plan they got there in the end.
So Rich & Nick progress to the Semi Finals. Jim & Byron are scheduled to fight on Sunday, Mark & Steve on Tuesday.
