Marder III is called up into the battle

It moves towards the center of town

picture
It opens fire on top floor of the hotel where the US 1st squad have positioned themselves

picture
The shot hits the building but without much effect on 1st squad
picture
German 3rd squad have moved into the buildings adjacent to the engineers
picture
US engineer rifle team (who have been on overwatch) open fire
picture
Their fire fails to suppress the German position who return fire with vengence!
Engineer MG still pinned down
picture
picture
Meanwhile German mortars are attempting to range in on the US 2nd squad who are on the edge of the square
picture
On the street the shooting continues
picture
picture
picture
picture
The German commander is constantly having to rally his troops just to keep their resistance up (this of course is decreasing their overall morale or Battle Rating)

The engineers are ready with their explosives:

The charges explode
picture
Tank obstacle cleared…(this is an objective for the US so decreases the German BR)

A bloody fights erupts with the attackers launching grenades and blasting everything in sight with their thompsons…

A Miss! The Sherman shoots just wide of the Marder…
picture
A close thing for the Marder, whose crew scramble to return fire…
picture
Meanwhile the dug-in German rifle team have routed leaving the MG to stand alone
picture
picture
The German BR Morale Counters are beginning to mount up…
These are received both if a unit is destroyed or when the commander decides to rally the troops

The Sherman’s knocked out

He’s had enough…
picture
Now suddenly the US are feeling serious pressure; this could go either way with both sides hanging on by their fingernails
The 1st squad assault ends in victory after the German 3rd squad put up terrific resistance!
picture
4 of 1st squad have been put out of the battle
picture
Engineer team decide to put some fire down on the Marder …
picture
The gunfire from the hotel forces the Marder into a retreat
picture
picture
picture
Finally after failing its comms test for the entire battle the US FO gets through to his mortar team and with his first barrage scores a direct hit on the dug-in German MG team …how ironic that their first shot scores the winning blow of the entire battle!
picture
This final loss of the MG unit pushes the German BR just over the its force limit…
The Germans have broken!
picture
Their resolute resistance has finally broken

 
Probably the best game I've participated in Ever!
 
Hope you enjoyed it ;)
