American (Nisei)German
Attempts by units of the 141st Infantry to rescue their 1st Battalion, surrounded and cut off in the Vosges Mountains, had failed. The overworked 442nd Regimental Combat Team, made up of Japanese-American troops and white officers, was called to take over. On October 27th, supported by armor and artillery, they began their attack against the dug-in Germans. Their first attempt was driven back with heavy losses. Despite continuing intense machine gun and mortar fire, the Nisei began to move back up the ridge. Pvt. Hajiro led one rush, spraying German positions with a BAR. Despite a serious wound, Staff Sgt. Miyamoto led his men to the top of the rise where they took on the defenders in a hand-to-hand struggle in their entrenchments. They took the high ground, and the next day broke through to the lost battalion. And the attack shattered the German line, opening the way to the Rhine.

2013-06-05(A) X von Marwitz vs Martin Mayers American (Nisei) winAn infantry only scenario of some Nisei Americans with tough punch in firepower and good morale and leadership. The defending Germans have a mix of 5-4-8s and 4-4-7s with some MGs. The biggest asset of the Germans is the terrain: The Americans have to get up one hill, cross a dry stream (one footbridge available, too) and get up another hill. Forest is in effect along with Alpine Hills. The Germans somehow have to delay the US while not exposing themselves too much to their enormous FP. In the end, the US will have to get close where their morale might become a problem if the German still has something to shoot with. The representation of the terrain in the game, though generic, is EXCELLENT - I have visited the area of the fighting and done some hiking there. Our game came down to the last turn in which my Germans were able to break one 667 in an decisive attack opening the way to advance up to retake one single level 3 hill hex the Nisei were required to capture and hold.
