[ Lorraine Region, France ]: [H2H]:[HIS]:[BZ]:[N AF,N VV]:[1.04] The newly formed Pz. Bgde. 112 was rushed to France in late August, 1944. The Bgde. consisted of a few Eastern Front veterans, notably the commander von Versloot, combined with new recruits. On paper, the Bgde. was a formidable force, however it was devoid of essential support elements. The Bgde. moved into positions at Dompaire and were content to await further orders. The Free French Forces in the area, of the 2nd Armored Division, were not content to play a waiting game. They formed three battle groups to attack the Germans. The Free French were battle hardened veterans of three campaigns. Historically, Pz. Bgde. 112 was annihilated, with the remainders going to the 21st Pz. Div. Their downfall was a lack of artillery and air support. The Pz. Bgde. was hit with no less than three flights of rocket firing Typhoons. French civilians in the area also gave excellent information on the movement of the Germans. Enjoy

Nice map and oob. Well thought out vic conditions. Unit heavy on a relatively small map though. No room for error.

Second play was a bad as the first. Hopefully the powers that be will not delete my comments or vote.

Allies should not attempt to evenly cover the entire front. Pack as much as you can into a narrow assault flanking the town. Draw the German tanks into close fighting with your armor. I probably would have given the balancing as fair if it were not for the description suggesting it would be an easy win for the Allies.
