FOW on Anzac Day: India v. Afrika Korps

Cpt Gandhi's Indian Rifles v. Rich's Schutzen

No retreat mission, Indians making a night attack.
The Afrika Korps is dug in in the foreground, the Indians have begun their advance before dawn.
Indian infantry took the village as the bugs & portees went around it.   A combined infnatry & tank attack took the objective at the first attack.  The Germans counterattacked with their Panzers out of ambush.  The panzers drove the infantry off objective, but the Valentines hit enough of them to force a morale test.  The failed test pretty well handed victory to the Indians.  The German reserves tried to retake the objective, but without armour support they had little hope.
