Bois Du Homme, South of Caumont: August 1st, 1944. (Scenario Size: Brigade+. Head to Head or German Human vs AI) The 21.Panzer Division had been fighting since June 6th and was heavily depleted. With the British Operation Bluecoat having brushed aside the 326th Infanterie Division, the 21.Panzer Division was committed only two days after being pulled out of the front line. Its commander, Gen Feuchtinger, had been resisting pressure for its use in a counterattack against VIII Corps. Under protest and threat of court martial, he agreed to carry out the attack. It commenced around dawn, in classic German style, with small groups of infantry supported by armour and artillery trying to find weak spots in the line to exploit. It was a long day with the massed British artillery finally saving the day.

An exciting battle in which possession of the main objective, hill 309, changed hands three times.

Don't see how the AXIS can get much more than a draw-if they are lucky

This game down to the last couple of turns and was more exciting than some.
