a static defence with not much to do once the setup was achieved...the turns were fast!

it seems my other comment went astray....as the axis defender, this one was actually more challenging than at first glance. The limited LOS/LOF engaged my decision making skills :) That being said, once I was setup, there was not much to do other than feed the two reinforcement platoons into the trenches. Those quad 20mm's were fun - first time I have used them. The US mortars were key to the paratroopers, and very deadly to any crew served weapon. The huge time limit for such a small battle was puzzling. Thanks

If the Allies started the battle with the majority of their troops present, it would be better balanced and reduce the need for a 2 hour battle. Since the Axis has a larger force defending in trenches and receives earlier reinforcement, achieving victory is very challenging.

Great fun - wildly different forces (inf only).

Defender has varied quality troops and needs to keep this in mind all through the game. Scenario seems very long considering it's size.

good little fight but the german morale is too weak and half your units run away under fire!

If the attacker doesn't do major blunders, the outcome is clear from the start.

Germans have very little chance here.

Made to be played vs AI. Not much for the defender here.

A good solo scenario, not for H2H
the german side has very little to do during the game
