Balance:
German (SS)American
Overview:
As part of Operation Luttich, the German drive through Mortain towards Avranches, the 2nd SS-Panzer Division’s Der Führer Regiment moved out of its assembly area at 0430 hours. Once it reached the outskirts of Mortain, Der Führer’s spearhead turned right to follow the highway north, over the Cance river at Pont de la Vacherie, to where the highway merged with Route 177 out of l’Abbaye Blanche. The column planned to sweep into St. Barthelmy from the south, turn left, and support the 1st SS-Panzer Division’s drive along Route 177 towards Avranches. While trying to cross the river at Pont de la Vacherie, the Germans were ambushed by elements of the 823rd Tank Destroyer Battalion and the 120th Infantry Regiment. This roadblock forced the Germans to attack from another direction. At 0600 hours, two German halftracks mounting 75mm guns and escorted by a company of infantry moved south down Route 177 in an attempt to outflank the American position. Here they met two more guns of the 823rd.

2019-05-02(A) Tom Kearney vs Lindsey Murillo German (SS) winOther than a half squad scout getting KIA’d and a SS Squad blundering into a minefield this scenario easily went the Germans way. I think that Lindsey’s deployment could have been much better; the main road was barely covered by fire.
2017-10-31(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Federico Corso American winGermans couldn't pass a morale, add to that 4 K/X results and you have a picture, game was over on a snake eyes rolled by an american MMG against a german squad which got a KIA and pushed the exit points to 22. Frankly I found it boring for american as well since the best course of action is not moving and hoping to roll low on german squads moving.
2016-05-30(D) Jeff B vs Scott Sherer German (SS) win
2016-02-10(A) Andy Beaton vs Jonathan Kay German (SS) winVery close fight - Germans pulled it out at the last minute with a lucky bounding fire shot by the last halftrack and the last US squads being pinned out of LOS of the exit by a wounded hero.
2014-10-03(A) Andy Beaton vs Ardneh German (SS) winAmericans didn't have enough forces to stand up given their low morale. Once the line started to crumble, it was easy to keep pushing it
