Probably a lot like I suspect fighting in the bocage really was - repetitive and deadly with lots of attrition from mortars and hidden machine guns, best part was fighting over the flanks.

An interesting array of force compositions. The Germans have the better quality soldiers, the better AFVs, and the largest mortars (120mm). The Americans have more soldiers and they are able to occupy and defend 5 of the 7 objectives early on....if they want to. The terrain is very interesting and provides lots of LOS challenges. Small bocage-enclosed fields litter the battlefield, and it is a challenge to try and outflank your opponent while they hold a bocage line. I really enjoyed this infantry-heavy battle and it had enough indirect firepower and AFVs to make it interesting.

It is difficult on the German side, it has less infantry and no possibility of destroying bocage. This is a key issue for the movement of tanks.

Stuarts versus STuG's with 105mm guns? Seriously? Between the 'fausts and the German AFV, my little Stuarts were cannon fodder.

You've got a large map with objectives that are pretty spread out. The Allies start out with better position (church tower), the Axis with better armor (StuG and StuH vs Stuarts), although the ground conditions are wet so the Axis armor can't be driven just anywhere. The map has a lot of interesting tactical angles and lines of sight.

If you are playing Axis and you win the armor battle but your armor bogs, it becomes an infantry grind. Good luck!
