Infantry Probe at Argentan ETO (id:#58146)
Le Franc Tireur (Franc-Tireur #8 ID:FT43)
Designer: Philippe Naud and Emmanuel Batisse
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
On the 1st of August 1944, the French 2ème Division Blindee landed in Normandy, anxious to fight the “Boche”. Following the breakthrough created by Operation Cobra and the failure of the German counter-attack at Mortain, time seemed ripe to destroy by encirclement the remaining Nazi units in Normandy. Concentrating around Le Mans, the US XV Corps - with 2ème DB – headed north on the 9th, with the town of Argentan as main objective. The first encounters with German panzer units gave mixed results. If the hedgerows formed perfect defensive positions, the flexibility and aggressiveness of the French often prevailed. Four days later, Leclerec forces were south of Argentan, theoretically an objective of the 5th US Armored Division. The French general nevertheless decided to take the town. A small mixed column drove to the outskirts and infantry under Lieutenant Carage cautiously entered Argentan but found no signs of the enemy. Unknown to the Allies, elements of the 116.Panzerdivision hurried from the north to help bolster the crumbling defense.

2017-05-20(D) Michael Rodgers vs Bill Slunt French winBill Slunt and I diced for sides. I received the defending Free French. I hipped two HS with BAZ in orchard road hexes. I lightly defended the FF rightmost building; I defended stronger on the left, and strongest in the middle with the FT. I deployed a lot at the beginning and during the game. Bill attacked mostly in the middle and FF right. One HIP BAZ bagged an SPW 251/1. The right building went down in CC, but took some Germans with them. The FT broke on its first shot, achieving only a TC. The left building was never threatened by infantry, but AFV’s kept those troops in their building until near game end. The middle building was fought over extensively. In the end, I still had one G.O. HS and one melee happening to keep that building for the win.
2017-03-29(D) Glen Taylor vs Mike French winCame down to last turn. Great scenario.

2016-04-01(A) Michael Rodgers vs Bob Tufano French winBAZ set fire to the central victory building, which screwed up the Germans' plan of attack. Still had a small chance near the end, but missed two 3 to 1 CC attacks.
