Very hard scenario to try and root out the axis from the village and I'm afraid I failed miserably

Enjoyed the battle and the challenge of fighting into a built up area. The British side has a slight advantage owing to tank numerical superiority and loads of Bren/MMG carriers providing mobility and extra firepower. There is far too much artillery for a battle this size and the scenario would be much better if arty was cut by 50% for both sides.

Good map and good array of forces. For once the British get a good proportion of arty (realistically) and it is well needed. A battle of two halves with open ground to cross then a town to fight through.
