German (SS)American
The American hold on the Nijmegen Bridge was tenuous and the Germans were determined to retake or destroy it. Reinforced by the remnants of the 9th SS Panzer Reconnaissance Battalion, the Germans launched a series of violent counterattacks on the bridgehead which grew in intensity throughout the night and early morning. Near noon, a scratch-built German force consisting of over a hundred SS infantry with armor support made a last effort against the left flank of Colonel Tucker's weary paratroopers. One of the first paratroopers to spot the approaching Germans was a bazooka gunner, Private John Towle. With complete disregard for his own safety, Towle immediately set out to blunt the attack all by himself. . . . John Towle joined the Army from his birth city of Cleveland, Ohio in March 1943, and by September 21, 1944 was serving as a private in Company C, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division. On that day, at age 19, near Oosterhout in the Netherlands during Operation Market Garden, Towle engaged a German force with his rocket launcher in an attempt to disable two enemy tanks and a half-track. He was killed during the battle and posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor six months later, on March 15, 1945.

2015-04-21(A) X von Marwitz vs Steve Bond German (SS) winInteresting game I played as the Germans. The Germans either need to blow a brigde (having 3DC at hand) or inflict 24 CVP on the US. During the initial turn, the Germans have to cross some difficult ground. Altogether, they must not lose time. Getting to the bridge will lead through a number of buildings the US will defend. Placing DCs to blow the Bridge might involve some luck, setting DCs will require more time and safety for those setting the DCs. The US can retreat across the bridge making it difficult for the Germans to move onto it. The big asset the German has are two Panthers. Despite 5 US bazookas, these are hard to knock out for the US if handled correctly. A German ht can be used as a quick reaction force or to cut rout paths. The Germans need to carefully protect these vehicles and make maximum use of them at the same time. I figured that the bridge may be hard to blow up and thus tried to inflict as many CVP on the US as possible, and, very importantly take PoWs. My main approach would be the "short" one via the buildings with some flanking units to draw away some of the US force. Two factors played a signifcant role in favor of the Germans: On the first turn, the Germans managed to reach the 8B1 Building in force and managed to avoid serious casualties during the approach over the dangerous ground. Then, one of the Panthers wreaked havoc on the US in the 8J2 building, CH'ing and killing a 9-1 leader, breaking/reducing 2 US squads equivalents which had to leave their HMG and a BAZ. This broke the back of the defence and saved time for the Germans. From then on, the US could to stem the tide. The Germans reached the bridge on turn 7 and managed to place all 3 DCs on turn 8, none of which blew the bridge. However, the Germans had managed to capture a massive amount of US infantry by cutting off rout paths with the aid of the vehicles. After end of the RtPh in German turn 8, it was all over. The bridge taken (but not blown), the US PoWs herded to the rear. A fun scenario to play, but the CVP cap the Germans need to inflict is steep. Getting to the bridge in a timely manner is not easy. Probably the scenario is pro US. But the two factors mentioned turned it pro German for our game.
