The map and terrain in this scenario is really a wonderful representation of the "Bocage" country. Very good positions for the defensive player. Offensive player must excercise patience in bringing his assets to the table.

I won this scenario as Axis, but shouldn't have. The allies have a completely overwhelming force in this one. With the overly generous time limit the American side has time to easily and leisurely take objectives.

I would also add the map is quite dull. The lack of ways to travel for the Germans further hinders their ability to defend, and allows the attacking player to know the exact routes defenders can take between positions, something the attacking force would have very little knowledge of in terrain like this, and the defending force would also be able to improve egress routes for troops.
Sometimes I'm around a lot and can get many turns done, other times I can't. I'll always finish the games.
