***Sorry for the blurry pictures!
|The sleepy French countryside. The allied objective is to take the beige house in the center of the village.|
|Both sides are on overwatch waiting to open up.|
|But the Germans are caught off guard when a Paratrooper section appears on their flank and lays down withering hail of fire. The Sherman adds to the suppression with a long range shot.|
|In response Wittman appears in the village and at the extreme range ricochets a shot off the Sherman (wew lucky!)|
|The Sherman decides not to stick around and moves out of Wittman's line of sight, together over a couple turns of fire the Panzergrenadier section is pushed to breaking with a loss of a senior and junior leader.|
|Wittman standing guard:|
Despite firing almost every turn he never managed to penetrate a sherman, perhaps the Resistance has infiltrated the munitions factory?
|On a double phase the Allies rush the German jump off point and shut it down. While a second Grenadier squad deploys in the village behind a house to try and cover the retreat of the remnants of the first section.|
|The Allies deploy a brave firefly to trade shots with Wittman, to little effect.|
