Death in the Devil's Forest - The Matrix Games version of West Front
Chaumont, Belgium. (Best Played Human vs Human). When the call went out for the 4th Armored Division to lead the relief effort towards Bastogne, it was CCB that spearheaded the drive north. After a dazzling but trying 22 hour journey, CCB led by 4th Armor Bn crested a hill to Chaumont when units of the 5th German Para Div backed up by a Sturmgschutz Bn jumped the 4th from forest cover on the right side of the road. After heavy fighting the 4th fought it's way through JgdPz's and 75mm AT guns making its way into the hamlet. Leaving Chaumont towards Grandru, German heavy tanks from the 104th PG's opened up on the US Shermans leading the way. To make matters worse they were backed up by JdgPz's and more AT guns. After a day of heavy fighting CCB cleared the way to Bastogne capturing over 300 Germans in the process. HISTORICAL NOTE: While some unit liberties were taken in the design of the scn to make it more playable and fun, the basic OOB was taken from PATTON 360 the Road to Bastogne.
