Designer: Jon Mishcon
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Colonel Robert Sink and the 506th PIR had orders to seize the main highway bridge over the Wilhelmina Canal and then secure Eindhoven, the southernmost objective of the airborne “carpet” and only ten miles distant from the British armor waiting to surge forward from the Meuse-Escaut Canal bridgehead. With his regiment down in good order along the edge of the Zonsche Woods, Sink sent his 1st Battalion racing to grab the great bridge. There was almost no opposition . . .until the paratroopers reached the northern outskirts of the village of Zon. As they entered the village, fire erupted from a concealed heavy AA piece, one of several in place to protect the vital bridge from Allied bombers.

Last Played:
2018-11-30(D) Louis Langdeau vs Andrew S/James J German winTraining game for James, who joined Andy and piloted a few squads in his first time playing ASL. He got a hell of an introduction, because my dice were on fire all night. My first three shots were critical hits with my 88s. I would conservatively put my average die roll for IFT and TH rolls somewhere around a five. Andy and James managed to make a push, but when their last stack that could conceivably get off got broken, they called it.
2018-08-13(A) Jeff B vs John Malaska German winThis is basically Gavin Take with the Germans getting, not one, but two 88s. Being that they can park them right back by the extremely narrow and open ground exit area I would definitely give the edge to the Germans. My opponent had a very good setup, with excellent views to most of my entrance spots. I felt the immediate press of time and was perhaps a bit too hasty in my approach. Losing 3 squads and my 9-2 on the first turn probably would have been enough for most people to call it a day, but I pressed on. My Americans, as is typical for me, couldn't pass a MC to save their lives. In the end the most I was going to be able to get off was 6 VP, and even that was no guarantee. I'm just not a fan of these small and gamey scenarios.
2018-06-01(A) Jonathan Kapleau vs Zucker, Daniel American win
2018-03-27(A) Jonathan Kapleau vs Holland, Donald American win
2018-03-07(D) Stephen dedier vs Johnston, Mike American winMy first PBEM game. Nice option to have with a hectic schedule and a lot of travel. It is always tough to face the American paratroopers. With the Assault Fire capability at a 5 and multiple negative leaders they don't have to choose between moving and firing I still managed to execute my plan pretty well of keeping my 88's under wraps till American 4 when one came out and eliminated a HS, Broke a leader and another squad. The 2nd 88 lost concealment to advancing fire. Still feeling good. Disaster in the bottom of 4. The newly unconcealed 88 malfs on the first shot and the other crew rolls a 12 on an MC eliminating themselves. Americans charge Other 88 repairs on the next attempt breaking a squad and leader but the crew is broken in advancing fire. Last ditch I am able to put shots on all 3 exit hexes including a fire land but it just isn't enough for those high morale troops and leaders. I break multiple units trying to exit but still 10+ VP get off the board for the American win.
2017-09-09(A) Jim Rupp vs James L. American win
2017-05-29(A) Jason Wert vs Gabe Wert American winNice scenario and tight action. 88's were a menace and wrecked the 9-2 and two Squads for CH. Americans managed to squeak off 8cvp for win
2017-04-02(D) David Garvin vs Mike Allexenberg American win
2016-12-03(D) David Garvin vs Jeff Coyle American win
2016-09-24(A) B-E Karlsson vs German American winMy third playing of "Zon with the wind". Good fun and another win for me. Loads of great rolls for me, heaps of shitty rolls for my opponent.
2016-07-01(D) B-E Karlsson vs American German winWon as the Germans but a close call. Three snakeyes in the last turn with the last 88 made my day.
2016-01-15(A) David Garvin vs Alain Chabot German win
2015-08-31(D) Jeff B vs Stuart Brant American win
2015-01-17(A) David Yllanes vs Zeke American winI can see why this is a classic. Very fun and balanced scenario. I tried to envelop the German defense and the game was undecided until the last second.
2014-11-07(D) David Ramsey vs Gerard Burton American winAmericans came straight down the middle but the Germans couldn't hold out. A final failed morale shot against the last remaining 88 left too much to do for a squad and a half holding off half the American army.
2014-09-20(D) Andy Beaton vs Jonathan Kay German winPulled it out by blocking the exit with a 447 that never failed an FPF roll. Should have been a win for the Americans, but the dice said no.
2014-05-22(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Ugo Bartolucci American win
2014-05-08(A) Ruben Rigillo vs Marco Lombardi American win
2013-11-07(A) Rami Saarinen vs JR American win
2013-04-30(A) youhei nakano vs German winI am lose.
2013-01-09(A) Jeff T vs Jerry American winI pushed Jerry back and moved my initial force in a flanking move on the right through the gully. My 2nd turn units just bulldozed his Krauts back and he couldn't pass a morale check to save his life. I stumbled on both guns in the woods on the right but he missed with 3 shots and got no ROF and I quickly broke one crew and pinned the other. I rushed him and had enough units up the hill and surrounding him at the exit woods for him to concede in US turn 4. Fun and quick as usual.
2011-06-03(A) Paolo Cariolato vs ecz German winBoring old scenario. I had fun a long time ago when little I knew about set up. Put your guns in the exit hexes and wait for the paras to come to you.
2010-07-03(A) Richard Jenulis vs Sean White American win
2010-05-13(A) Rami Saarinen vs JR German winChallenging (for Americans) but interesting scenario.
2009-10-20(A) Jonathan Davis vs Stefano Weckerle American winThe American 9-2 battle hardened. Then he went heroic. Then he lead two squads to produce heroes and another to become fanatic. The Americans exited 10 points off in Turn 5.
2009-06-08(A) James Lowry vs Patch Bunny German win
2009-05-08(A) Dan Cunningham vs BB German winCame down to the end... then he rolled hot and I got roasted

2008-10-04(D) Aaron Sibley vs Gerard Burton German win
2008-08-16(D) Bill Brodie vs Mark Greenman German winLived up to its reputation as one of the best. In the last turn the paratroopers made a valiant bid to get to the exit hexes, but the German firepower held them off.
2006-06-26(A) simon jones vs Martin Vicca German win
2006-05-02(D) Davide Bendazzi vs Mario Nadalini German win
