Asking for Trouble ETO (id:#58977)
The Bunker (Dispatches from the Bunker #19 ID:DB044)
Designer: Stephen Johns
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
During Patton’s drive towards Metz, German units in the area were, for the most part, disorganized. Sometimes a bold move by a small number of American troops would result in the capture of large numbers of prisoners. In some locations, the Germans were more prepared and American units would suffer serious losses. Thionville was one of those places. Cavalry troops pushed the outpost garrison to the edge of town, but they were suddenly counterattacked by the better part of a battalion of Landsers. With the arrival of some German recon units, the cavalry troopers found themselves cutoff in the town hall, which was the only stone building in the area. Just as quickly, two M8 armored cars appeared with much needed added firepower. . .
