The 2nd Panzer Division had made the most progress during the Ardennes offensive, and was positioned a mere 6 kilometers from the Meuse River.

2017-12-09(D) Vic Lauterbach vs JM American winIf you have time (four afternoons in our case), this is ASL as its best! I picked off two M4s early, but the FBs took out a PzV and an H9 side turret hit got another. The US came through the gap left by my lost Panthers and into the village with a small force climbing the west side of the Board 39 hill. I only got one 80 OBA FFE before the 7-0 drew two red chits. Without that threat, the US AFVs on high ground went CE which helped them get hits. I lost all the AFVs in my initial setup by GT5 except one PzV (and the PzIV wasted in the blocking force on Board 39 - it ran out of gas). I used the surviving PzV and the two PzIVs that enter to cover west exit area while the JgPz covered the center, and the SPWs took the 5-4-8s into the 24V-W woods. My plan was to retake building S7 or U4, but US OBA and 90L hits foiled me. A PzV MA malfunction and turret hit that killed a HD PzIV on GT6 left just one PzIV covering the west exit route. Lots of M3s drove off, and the last building R4 fell on GT7. This was a return to full ASL for Jim (after two SK warm-ups), so I gave him the balance. He got 77 VP off, making this one pretty close and an absolute blast to play!
2013-07-12(A) Michael Rodgers vs Bruno L'Archeveque American winThe Americans have so many AFV. The Panthers must get protection from the German AA. I think the Germans need the balance.
2011-05-20(A) Andy Beaton vs American winToo much towards the exit VP's, the buildings were a close run thing
2001-10-01(D) Richard Jenulis vs Anthony Flanagan German winASLOK 2001 [exact date unknown]. We started this scenario around midnight. Everyone thought we were crazy for starting that late and they were right. We played until the players started to file in for the next days rounds. Both of us crashed hard and lost the next day of play.
2001-08-15(A) Fred Ingram vs Dave McLee German win
