2018-02-11(D) jon smith vs German American winYanks went for forward defence... MMG plus squad and -1 ldr in building on left, MMG squad and other -1 leader in woods in middle, a 75 Sherman on hill on front line on left, the 76l on hill at back covering the left gap in woods and the centre.... last Sherman on left flank in woods... rest of squads spread out along the front with the mortar at back... Germans moved in into orchards and the MMG teams opened up along with the Sherman 75, the half track went down and 2 mmc plus a wounded leader too.. Germans got the mortar into position and along with the HMG were able to delete any yanks that stood still... yanks fell back and the germans took the woods in the middle... running out of time, the tanks rushed the gap in the woods... the 75l missed a pzr IV at point blank range, but the zooka took it out and blazed it.. the panter went in next and when it turned the 76l took a side shot intensive fire taking it down, the attack was over... good game!

2014-01-18(A) Michael Focht vs Joe Markham German win
2012-02-25(A) Steve Bowen vs TB German winDefender got too aggressive and exposed his armor too freely. Once the American AFVs were wiped out the Germans were able to dominate. Nice scenario but the American player needs to be careful on the defense.
2011-11-11(A) X von Marwitz vs Chris Mazzei American win
2011-09-15(A) Björn Lorenzen vs Armin Deppe German winGerman breakthrough on right US flank very early. Opponent did not cover the approach on the right flank with sufficient armor which proved to be decisive.

2010-03-13(A) Jeff Waldon vs Will Willow German winFtF-Bitter Ender '10
2009-08-23(D) Jan Fransson vs Robert Maglica German win
2009-04-14(A) David Ramsey vs John O'Reilly American winLost on the CVP with the Germans but the US mortar immobolizing the Panther was, as the title says... 'Bad luck'
2008-01-27(D) Bill Brodie vs Mark McGilgrist German win
2007-09-07(D) Paolo Cariolato vs Enrico Catanzaro American win
2007-08-07(D) fabrizio da pra vs Miguel Guerrero American winI had a very bad luck with the tanks, tried to kill one german with 3 of mine but ended up with 3 wrecks and just an immobilized german tank. Did alot of CVP by killing crews.
