Steve's FJ's v. Sean's US
Matthew's Germans v. Jim's Brits
The battle was gregarious affair with all the troops in two tight bunches. We found out that the corner of the table can be a very dangerous place when the Confused Battle rule applies. But the highlight of the battle was in the centre. The Panther moved up creating mayhem with 3MMGs & a big gun, but the Bren carrier dashed up the road & deposited the PIAT team on the Panthers flank. The result was an immobilised Pussy - not a bad result for the Germans as it was already in a good place. Next turn the Germans got the first two command dice out of the bag. The veteran PIAT team took a shirtload of fire from the tank & a panzergrenadier platoon, but got away with just losing the loader. When it got to shoot it only managed superficial damage, but it was enough - another immobilsation so the crew bailed out. After that defeat was inevitable for the Reich despite the Brits losing their commandos in an ill-advised close combat.
