Belgium, 10th May 1940: The battle in the Ardennes begins on 10th May and rages for 5 days. And so it was in the early morning hours of May15th, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill was awakened by a 'phone call from French premier Paul Reynaud. "We have been beaten, we have lost the battle!" The Germans had broken through. Churchill tried to calm him down, explaining that it was only one penetration, and that they would have to slow down in a few days, this would present an opportunity to counter-attack. Reynaud responded that," The front is broken near Sedan! We are faced with a torrent of tanks." As the day progressed the extent of the disaster that had befallen the French on the Meuse became clear. The Germans had smashed through the line and were now racing over the northern plains of France unhindered. The French tried to gather any units to counter-attack, but there was no reserves left uncommitted. And so it was the Panzer had cut like a scythe through the Ardennes and were heading for the coast. This scenario is the southern half of the Campaign where the main Allied force is committed to central Belgium. [Size large]
