Hill 192, North East of St Lo: July 11th, 1944. (Scenario Size: Battalion. Head to Head or US Human vs AI) The 11th of July was the critical day in the St Lo sector. Panzer Lehr had launched their counterattack at le Dezert and though the battle was in the balance it was evident the US line would hold. On the left flank of the Allied position, Hill 192 was the dominant terrain feature. German observers could see all the way to the beaches, exposing all to artillery fire. 2nd Infantry Division was tasked with clearing the hill. The division's first attempt on June 16th had resulted in heavy casualties and little ground taken. After intensive training between the infantry, armour and engineers the July 11th attempt was expected to be more successful. This scenario is a truncated version of #0711_02 Hill 192 - Battle in the Bocage. See the 'Getting Started' guide for a play through tutorial.

A fun and fast-paced scenario.

Both sides take alot of losses.

Great short battle. Perfect as a tutorial, but also good as a first multiplayer battle to get familiar with the system. The Germans mostly just sit in place and hammer away the entire time, but a couple good tactical moves can make the difference.

Seems like a tough slog for the Allies but may just take more thought and play
