A Good Party DTO (id:#56306)
Avalon Hill (AH:ASL Annual `93a ID:A 56)
Designer: Unknown
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Before the 8th Army could launch its assault on the Mareth Line, it had to clear the Axis outposts between the Wadi Zeuss and the Wadi Zigzaou. One of these, held by veterans of the 90th Light Division, encompassed a group of small hills appropriately named the "Horseshoe" by the British. Pilots reported that the Horseshoe was not heavily fortified, with few mines evident. Montgomery felt it a fine opportunity to safely blood the untested 201st Guards Motor Brigade before the heavy fight to break the Mareth Line. At a meeting of the brigade's officers, he quipped, "When I give a party it is a good party, and this is going to be a good party." The plan was to launch a two-battalion night attack behind a creeping barrage. After the Horseshoe was seized, MGs and AT guns would be brought forward to bolster the Guards against the inevitable counterattack.
