Excellent map with rolling hills and mix of open and wooded terrain coupled with really good VP objectives. This is an all infantry battle at roughly battalion(-) level except for some onboard mortars and a single SdKfz 251 halftrack. A nice size dismounted infantry force for both sides. The German MG42s and MP40s provide a firepower advantage at long and short range while the Allied side has more troops to offset this advantage. Overall, a fun battle and a great way to practice infantry tactics in CM!!

Interesting hilly map, decent forces for both sides. I only gave the allies a slight edge as they seemed to outgun me in any firefight that broke out, close or long range.

Good map with interesting forces. The Allies sure bring some firepower, especially huge amounts of Rifle grenades, which are quite accurate too. German player has to work hard to have a chance in this one.

Very pretty map and nice scenario, although can't help thinking this would have made a fascinating A/D instead of ME.
