[East of Aachen, Germany]:[H2H]:[HIS]:[BB]: With the decision to bypass Aachen, the plan of the US VII Corps called for a frontal attack by armor to sweep through the West Wall defenses south of the city then a northward sweep to complete the encirclement. By September 14th CCB/3rd Armored Division had penetrated deeply into the West Wall and was poised to drive north. At Roetgen, CCB split into two task forces with TF King advancing toward Stolberg and on their left flank CCA's Task Force Doan heading for Eilendorf, Verlautenheide and the western fringes of Stolberg. On the right TF Lovelady was to fight its way to Eschweiler. The Germans threw in a scratch force build around the remains of the 9th Panzer Division. The few German tanks and assault guns tenaciously held the line and scored hits on the American Shermans time after time but were pushed back nevertheless and getting exhausted. Help was on the way though. The newly equipped veteran 12th Infantry Division led by Generalleutnant Engel was rushed in by train from West Prussia with orders to attack immediately and throw the Americans back. On September 16 Fuesilier Regiment 27 had detrained from Juelich while the next day the other two regiments arrived.

Absolutely brilliant.

Fantastic map, nail biting to the very end, numerous options for both sides.

A WF must play.

very interesting armor vs. infantry battle
Excellent meeting engagement design for head-to-head play. Both players will find themselves on offense and defense until the end, making this battle very entertaining.

Liked it. Allies seemed a bit soft, and the Germans a bit too potent - for that period.
