German (SS)British
In the opening phase of OPERATION MARTLET, Company D of the Hallamshire Battalion was to occupy positions on Phase Line Queen, otherwise known as the River Bordel, on the western most section of Fontenay. The company advanced through heavy mist and established positions near the river. The battalion’s 6-Pounder anti-tank guns had not been in position long before the inevitable German counterattack started. The commanding general had offered a £5 prize for the first Panther tank knocked out.

2018-08-17(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Federico Corso German (SS) winPlay it! Great scenario.
2018-01-20(D) Jeff B vs Steve Etzelmueller British winMy opponent attacked solely on the western side of the stream but his plans were thrown a wrench when, seeking cover for one of his tanks, he rubbled the N8 building. As it was, despite this being a typically short SP scenario, I thought he would have enough time to adjust and continue his methodical push, because my Brits simply had no place to hide and hold the buildings at the same time. They seemed to constantly break and surrender. My reinforcing tanks were a welcome and necessary sight and I must have positioned them well because, over the next couple turns, all but one German tank were elmiminated (and this one was bound to fall in DFPh to my last hidden gun). I can't say this was one of the most enjoyable scenarios I have played.
2017-10-06(A) Michael Rodgers vs Steven Flicker British winAttacked strong at the middle east edge into the teeth of Brit defence.
2016-01-15(D) B-E Karlsson vs German German (SS) win
2014-12-10(D) Ralph Shoukry vs DS British winSplit German attack and British early success with AT guns prevented Germans from taking the required buildings.
