Clervaux, 25km east of Bastogne in the Ardennes: Dec 16th, 1944: In the opening phase of the attack, XLVII Pz Korps was ordered to get cross the Our and Clef Rivers as quickly as possible, to create the conditions for a westward advance. It was the German practice to put men over the river at night and taking advantage of this, the Germans slipped two regiments of the veteran 26th Volksgrenadier over the river for the morning attack. Panzergrenadiers of the 2nd Panzer Division crossed in rubber rafts and advanced on foot, while the engineers struggled most of the first day to bridge the river at a number sites, in order to unleash the powerful panzer formations that waited anxiously to cross. This scenario covers the action on the first two days in front of Bastogne along a major-north south roadway known to the Allies as Skyline Drive. [Size, medium]

Difficult for the US player to recover from the German artillery
Me and General McAulliffe decided to move I Company up on the line. That is, if you agree.
