[Peel Marshes, Holland]:[H2H]:[HIS]:[BB]: This scenario is a sequel to "Prelude in the Swamp". In the morning of 27 October 1944, Fieldmarshal Model had launched a vicious counterattack with 47th Panzer Corps against the Allied right flank in Holland held by the 7th Armored Division. Under cover of a dense fog the units of KG Reich (Pzgr Rgt 10 and Armored Recon Bn 9) had managed to sweep the Americans out of the village of Meijel. The commander of the 7th Armored Division General Sylvester, immediately recognized the threat that was posed by the German onslaught: From Meijel 2 routes lead through the swampy area of the Peel Marshes. The first from Meijel to Asten and then to Helmond where HQ of the 2nd British Army was situated, and the other to Liessel and Deurne. With both other Combat Commands under potential threat of additional German attacks in the south near Weert and in the north near Griendtsveen, he had no other choice but to throw his reserve Combat Command into the breach and to try to drive off the Germans. CCR was divided into Taskforce Chappuis moving from the road to Asten and Taskforce Wemple moving out from Liessel. Meanwhile the German engineers had managed to bridge the Deurne canal and started rolling their armor to the other side. Both forces clashed in the afternoon of 27 October.

Great map and force mix, just a little unbalanced in favor of the Axis. Slight adjustment to victory conditions or number of turns would likely do the trick and balance the scenario. Well designed.

I added the arrival of CCB/7 in the 2nd half of the scn. This is historically OK and pulls the scn in balance whereas previously it was in favour of the Germans. This version will be available in ME 1.03. Managed to capture 1750 VP, which would be suffient for a draw, but got out worse in the shooting than my opponent so suffered a minor loss.
If the Germans build their bridges very early then the Allies are at a great disadvantage with 28 turns.
Maybe a few turns too long, but otherwise a great scenario
Played with EA on.
Involves strategic bridge building under fire and proper allotment of battle groups for specific objectives

Germans must get a bridge built in a hurry to get his armor int game. Allies must press the Germans hard before the bridges get built. Hitting the bridge engineers with arty is a good idea Ive never seen happen playing this scenario a number of times.
