Overall, an enjoyable and very bloody battle. The ground is extremely restricted - even hedges cannot be breached easily as trees are placed in them to prevent this in most areas. The German side has almost no manoeuvre options and does not start the game with any pioneers but has them arrive much later, which is somewhat illogical. The scenario would be much better with two minor changes: 1) Full deployment of all troops to start (the FOOs die early as they are right in front of two main enemy areas) 2) Germans start the game with a pioneer platoon.

The British armour should arrive in the 25-30 minute window to make the play balance more even. Apart from that, a nicely designed scenario with a lot of challenges on both side.

A real slogging match for first hour but more German reinforcements turn the tide and really expected a late British counter-attack but they got no further reinforcements so the battle just petered out which was a shame.

Interesting scenario that flows back and forward throughout the battle with various reinforcements.

Found the lack of attacking routes for the attacker a bit frustrating but was obviously intentional.

Good attention to detail which is appreciated and made me research the actual battle to learn more about it (and help me...maybe :)
