With the first of the American invasion into Fortress Europe stalled, the order to counter attack has been given. Securing the road, command has given us tank support from the 2nd Panzer division Das Reich. Three Panzer III tanks will launch the attack with our infantry in support.

Tanks take up position as infantry move through the woods. Not a simple break-through mission, we have to rout the Americans and be in control of a designated objective on the other side of the woods.

Panzer’s will push forward using the stone walls and trees for cover so the infantry can fall in behind. Two of the tanks on overwatch with the main gun ready with high explosive shells, and the hull machine guns also at the ready. Advance one tank, and force any hidden American AT guns to show themselves…

First tank is hit before it can even break from the woods, advance, move and fire with infantry in support and take out that AT gun!

Tanks drive off the AT team, but bazooka teams and machine gun teams pick up. Advancing infantry is stalled, as the tanks try to blast them out of dug-in positions.

Close to breaking them, but with the last tank disabled, and the American machine gun teams in a cover-position I’m not willing to advance my infantry.

The counter attack is stalled for now…

Dig in…

Hold the cross-roads…
