Bolt Action

Normandy:  British against Germans.

This time we played a Meeting Engagement.  The British infantry (Veteran Canadians) with Sherman Tanks advanced towards the German infantry who had various Medium Tanks in reserve.  A disastrous misplaced German Artillery Barrage killed an officer and destroyed a Tank.  This allowed the British to advance under the cover of their own well placed barrage.  They were able to capture the Hamlet and then destroy the Anti Tank Gun.  This allowed the Shermans to advance and take out the enemy armour.  The Germans seeing their positions under combined attack honourably withdrew and awarded the Victory to the British.  Well done General Darryl ably assisted by James and Phil.   Comiserations with Mike (who saw his tanks once again destroyed), Alex and Bruce (who had made a steady but slow advance down the German right flank).
