From the posting at the Scenario Depot:
The US 7th Army has quietly been moved into position in the Ardennes just west of the German lines, in the area of two other villages called Rocherath-Krinkelt. The Allies plan to launch an offensive through the Western Wall and open a route to the Rhine River.

On the other side of the line, the Germans are quietly building up men and material to begin the Rundstedt Offensive. During the night, German units have been slowly moving into staging areas just behind the Villages of Hollerath and Ramscheid.

Just before dawn on December 12th the Allies launch their offensive against what they think is a poorly defended area."

Scenario is great BUT has a serious glitch.

Axis had flickering icons the entire way.

At around turn 89 as the allies I was unable to open file anymore so we decided on a draw.

a lot of units, it needs a very big compuer to manage it

Novel idea behind the scenario and interesting map although I think I would reduce the force density and stagger the initial force in a few waves. The amount of units was simply overwhelming.

Incredibly huge, especially from the US side.

Attrition warfare like I have never seen before in CM.
Extremely intense experience!

A tactical disposition that is just insane - Companies scattered over the entire map without any means of communication or the possibility to regroup.

Not really that interesting, but huge.
