Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
To reach Carentan, the Americans would have to cross a causeway carrying the highway from Saint-Comte-du-Mont through the low-lying swamps. As the 3rd Battalion of the "Screaming Eagles" pushed toward the town, Germans in a grouping of farmhouses sheltered by hedgerows poured rifle and machinegun fire into the exposed Americans. They were pinned down and subjected to withering fire whenever they attempted to move forward. Lt.-Colonel Bob Cole finally tired of the steady losses and radioed for a smoke barrage on the farm complex. And ordered his men to fix bayonets.

2015-07-26(A) Martí Cabré vs Santiago Penabella American winVasLeague 2015, Round 3. With the Americans I managed to get into the village without casualties and expel all the German defenders. Then the Germans had to counterattack but the German player had to concede for lack of time to continue playing. Seemed a fun scenario, though.
