GermanPartisan (Maquis)
Information reached Britain and America that a great and glorious uprising had taken place in south east France. Glières had become an important element in the psychological warfare. To honour the French Resistance, the new leader, Captain Anjot, an experienced officer, would fight in the face of defeat but his aim was to save his men's lives. On 26 March 1944, after another air raid and shelling, the Germans took the offensive. They split their attacking parties into three groups (Kampfgruppen) with an objective for each group. Reconnaissance was carried out by ski patrols dressed in white camouflage. One of the patrols with a Gebirgsjäger (mountain troops) platoon, made an attack on the main exit of the plateau and captured an advanced post in the rear. Sustaining the attack from about fifty German soldiers, eighteen maquisards fought and resisted into the night but were outnumbered and overwhelmed, though most of them escaped under cover of darkness. At ten o'clock, Captain Anjot decided honor had been satisfied and ordered the Glières battalion to retreat. In the days that followed, he and almost all his officers as well as 120 maquisards were found dead. They had been killed in battle or, if taken prisoner, had been tortured, shot or deported. The Germans considered the maquisards terrorists.

2013-02-24(D) mark watson vs Luke Sineath Partisan (Maquis) winTruly insane classic scenario. Luke had some early difficulty and was torn up by snipers and minefields. The partisans stayed strong and scrambled back and forth to slow the Germans down. Pretty interesting, but fairly long for what it is.
