In Front of the Storm ETO (id:#56361)
Avalon Hill (AH:ASL Annual `96 ID:A 104)
Designer: Curt Schilling
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The blitzkrieg in the West had begun. German forces were pouring into France at breakneck speeds. Bridges on the Moselle had been captured undamaged and the advance elements of the 34th infantry Division started to cross as soon as the obstacles installed on the bridges had been removed. One such bridge lay on the outskirts of the French town of Aessan. The job of holding this key objective was given to specially trained and equipped glider troops. As they arrived, they were joined by Vorausabteilung A which had brought up a 37mm anti-tank gun. At midday the 4th Spahis Regiment, supported by Hotchkiss H-35 tanks, counterattacked the bridge at Aessan.

2017-08-11(D) Michael Rodgers vs David Garvin German winMy first round game was A104 IN FRONT OF THE STORM with David Ginnard. My defence held tough and dished out some serious punishment in the early turns. I had the 9-2 leader up front. When a tank VBM occurred, the leader and squad where able to CC it to death. A turn later, they did it again to another tank. David conceded after four turns.
