British (East African)Vichy French
The Nyasalanders of the King’s African Rifles, with a detachment of South African armored cars, had worked their way from the port of Majunga halfway to the Madagascan capital, Tananarive. The Vichy defenders were handicapped both by the limited means at their disposal and the mixed emotions of many of their men. The Commonwealth troops simultaneously represented both the best hope for a revived France and the invaders of French soil. After a number of false starts and a series of minor demolitions, the Vichy decided to block the major road to the capital as a matter of honor. In the face of substantial from Vichy positions to the left and to the right, the Commonwealth troops attacked “with gusto”.

2018-06-02(A) Scott Sherer vs Ron Kyle British (East African) winPlayed at June CAASL meeting. As the Brits, came in on the west road, working my way through the woods. Ron had a wire set up in the woods-road hex that bogged an armored car for a turn, but the infantry bypassed it. The French only had one MMG in the OOB due to a misread of the scenario card, which essentially gave the British a leg up. However, good IFT rolls by me and poor MC rolls by Ron soon lead to all the Vichy units eliminated or broken and he conceded. Interesting scenario with a pretty basic exit VC feel.
