Overview:
The mission of the 101st Airborne Division in Operation Market-Garden was to secure the 15 miles of highway stretching from Eindhoven north to Veghel. The Screaming Eagles faced almost no opposition until the paratroopers reached the northern outskirts of the village of Zon. As the 1st Battalion entered the village with A Company in the vanguard, they were fired upon by a concealed heavy AA piece – the fabled German 88, one of several in place to protect the bridge from Allied bombers.

Last Played:
2019-12-11(A) Dmitry Klyuykov vs Fedor German winLooks like balanced scenario, our games was decided at the very last roll, which for me means, it's a good one.
2019-10-20(A) Pascal Boileau vs Briaux Philippe German win
2019-10-12(A) Jonathan Kapleau vs Cusick, John American win
2019-10-12(A) David Garvin vs Ray Saulnier American win
2019-10-12(A) Vilis Pavulans vs Steven Steward German winVery intense game. Is recorded on YouTube among VASLing with Stews videos. Painful ending..
2019-01-01(A) davide galloni vs Alle American win
2018-11-05(D) Tom Abromaitis vs Travis Crowe German winToo much prep fire meant the Americans had too much to do on the last turn.
2018-05-29(D) David Garvin vs Amanda Boles German win
2018-02-24(A) Jonathan Kapleau vs Cohen, Dave American win
2017-12-01(A) Jeff B vs Andrea Rhoss American winAmericans did their best to completely avoid both 88s and approached in force from the northwest. By the end of Turn 3 all German infantry (except the two crews) were either broken or dead. Turn 4 saw the Americans bravely scatter to take on the one 88 that stood between them and victory, but the Germans must have felt further defense was futile at this point as they threw up the white flag.
2017-09-24(A) Vic Lauterbach vs EL American winThis is ZON WITH THE WIND without concealment, snipers or trenches but a good defensive tutorial and fun for both sides. The up front defense didn't work as one US platoon took out both crews while the 9-2 directed squad with MMG broke the key German positions on GT5 allowing the 8-1 and three squads to exit. The 88s need to cover the exit hexes from H1 and J1. You can play this one twice in an afternoon. As always in an SK scenario, several HoB DRs went unused!
2017-07-25(D) Louis Langdeau vs Reid C German winPhew! Close one. My 88s didn't do much in this. One had the crew get murdered by a good shot early on, and the other malfed on its second shot of the game and never recovered. That being said, the rest of my troops performed admirably, falling back to lock Reid's troops out of the exit. Reid had a few bad melees as well that went on for far too long, and I managed to brick him on the last turn.
2017-07-09(A) Seumas Hoskins vs Dean American winDean setup his 88s a bit too far forward on the hills and didnt realize the Americans enter at two different points on the map. Americans zipped under the LOS of the guns and rushed into the exit point.
2017-06-15(A) Greg Krane vs Solo German winWinters wounded on the first turn! O the Drama!
2017-06-06(A) Greg Krane vs Solo German winLast minute 1FP resid fire snake eyes broke the last American half squad I needed to obtain the needed VP's. Great small scenario!!
2017-01-04(A) David Garvin vs Craig Stark American win
2016-11-19(D) Colin Emerson vs Michael Dorosh German winPlayed this SK scenario using concealment, which really threw the balance off, probably slowed the Americans down by 3 turns. Was also fortunate enough to have 2 squads really slow down the 2nd American group. Last turn saw Americans trying to run through my goal line stand. German win. Our unbalancing made the scenario too short for the Americans.
2016-11-19(A) Michael Dorosh vs Colin Emerson German winTried this one with full ASL rules (less SAN, EC, etc.) German benefited from setting up concealed, so probably didn't play out fully as it would in ASLSK. Still, lots of shooting and hidden gun action.
2016-09-17(D) Tom Abromaitis vs American win
2016-07-01(D) Tom Abromaitis vs Michael Gower German win
2015-10-04(D) Alberto Griffa vs Roberto Alesse American win
2015-08-17(A) santiago jimenez vs Stephen Tam German win
2015-07-19(A) leo zhu vs AraKalLek German winIt's a face to face game, teaching AraKalLek to use Gun.He have good luck to fire 88 Gun, 9 hit in 10 try.
2015-03-21(A) O Ramaille vs Valkiem American winThe first american forces entered up hill and soon discovered a german 88 AA gun waiting for them. They quickly silenced it and attract the german fires to them. Meanwhile, the major force crossed the village and dislodged the week german resistance. The major german forces were up hill and theratened by some american fires. they were unable to prevent the US paratroopers to exit the map and win the game.
2015-03-16(A) O Ramaille vs German American winThe US advance was slow in the village with scattered German troops defending. At the exit of the village, the 88s fired and destroyed a few units. The Americans then rushed to exit the city as one of the gun was malfunctioning. Several paratroopers were pinned or routed but eventually thye US leader, one squad and two half-squads exited safely, just enough to win the game.
2015-03-16(D) Angelo Brugnoli vs Lorenzo Panarello American win
2015-01-11(D) Aaron Sibley vs John Bubb German winJohns second game of ASL.He played well until a critical with an 88 KIA his 9-2 and a squad and broke two others. He has learned the downside of stacking!
2014-08-30(A) Michael Focht vs David Garber American win
2014-03-13(A) Merric Blackman vs Michael Elshaug German win
2014-02-13(A) Michael Focht vs David Garber German win
2014-01-17(D) Michael Focht vs Joel Covey German win
2012-10-27(A) O Ramaille vs German winThe 88s remain hidden in the woods south of town whereas the german soldiers were scattered in town to slow the US progression. This tactic proved a success as the US get only 1 turn to exit and get VPs. But, at this time the 88s awoke and prevent the paratroopers to exit. Only one squad was successful because one of the gun malfunctioned.
2012-08-26(A) David Ramsey vs John T American winClose game but the US must push continually.

2011-02-23(A) O Ramaille vs American winPlayed 88s at Zon twice. Twice the american won. There is not much placement availability for the guns. They are exposed fairly quickly. Precise shots from the paratroopers can silent the guns definetely.
