Hoping to avoid the nightmare of house-to-house fighting, two battalions were ordered to drive through the heart of Aachen towards the three hills dominating the city to the north. Giving the 2,000 weary defenders no respite, the Americans stepped off at dawn the next day. . .

2019-10-18(A) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best German winMy third and final attempt to win this scenario as the Americans. One of Dan’s HMG’s went on a 10 shot in a row rate of fire tear that basically gutted the American assault through the cemetery. By turn 5 I conceded.
2017-04-16(D) Jeff B vs Lionel Colin American winThe German upfront defense proved to have a weakness, which the Americans were quick to exploit and run through like gangbusters. A last-ditch defense by the AA gun and a couple half squads didn't prove nearly enough and the Americans had more than enough points by Turn 7.
2017-03-28(A) Andy Beaton vs Marti Cabre American winAmericans had good luck in using tank fire to suppress German HMG's and choosing a route through the board that bypassed the quad 20. Once the line cracked, the Germans couldn't reposition in time.
2016-09-11(D) James Lowry vs Tom Arnold American win
2016-05-11(A) Jon Jaramillo vs Justin German winJustin staked out most of the 2nd Level locations. I was finally able to clear the middle building in turn 7 but i conceded after my turn 8 rally phase when I only had the capability of getting about 7 units off the board and no real promise of getting the last 2.
