Battle of Goose Green
Play as Either Side or PBEM

Lt. Colonel Jones' plan for the attack on Goose Green called for A and B Companies to take the lead. B Company would advance on the right while A Company headed for the Community of Darwin. D Company would follow B Company. As B Company ran into elements of the 12th Regiment, it slowed down. D Company passed them in the dark and continued south. They made good progress, despite some blue on blue fire, until the lead platoon crested Coronation Ridge and came under fire.

A Company of the 12 Regiment were mostly recently called up conscripts who had barely completed their basic training. If this was not bad enough, most of their heavy weapons and ammunition were sent by ship while the troops themselves were airlifted to Port Stanley. The heavy weapons didn't arrive before the 12th Regiment was committed to battle. Some of the conscripts fought well, some tried to hide. Facing one of the elite units of the British Army on a cold, rainy night was a crash course in modern warfare, one that unfortunately, many would not survive.

I dithered a few turns before really pushing my attack; at 6 turns long of a scenario, you don't get that luxury.
