There is alot of quick action in this scenario however, the Allies firepower is so low, it is hard to inflict much damage on the Germans. Also, the US 60mm mortars are useless. It would be more helpful to have those mortar crews using rifles.

Quick game short and fast no time to maneuver just have to jump into the attack as German
