A Bridgehead Too Wet DTO (id:#56006)
Avalon Hill (ASL 5 - West of Alamein ID:41)
Designer: Unknown
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Montgomery chose to make a frontal assault in an area defended by elements of Panzergrenadier Regiment Afrika and the weak Giovani Fascisti (Young Fascists). The 151st Infantry Brigade of the 50th Division reinforced by forty–odd Valentine tanks were able to cross a soggy floored wadi but no AT guns could follow. This would have dire consequences, for in the afternoon, the 15th Panzer Division counterattacked. . .
Attacker: German (Panzergrenadier Regiment 115 / Panzer Regiment 8)
Defender: British (9th Durham Light Infantry / 50th Battalion, Royal Tank Regiment)

2018-08-04(A) Shane Pask vs British winWalkover. Opening bombardment did little but did kill Pom CO (9-1). I delayed the entry of my halftracks until turn 3 hoping my tanks could take care of the defending Valentines before they arrived. Wrong! 4 dead German tanks and one with disabled MA by the end of turn 2. I gave up after turn 6 trailing 37 to 70 DVP and with no captured trenches (1 technically captured but empty, 1 disputed). Germans were down to 3 halftracks (including mortar carrier) but Poms still had 3 tanks (1 with malfunctioned MA) and 8 full trenches. Poor tactics on my part.
