Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The 1/5 Welsh were ordered to gain the Falaise road and crossing near Barfour. A change in mission called for the companies to halt at the road. Unfortunately, Battalion HQ lost radio communications with both companies. Lt. Tasker Watkin's B Company continued across the road and later came under murderous machine-gun fire while advancing through a corn field set with booby traps. Lt. Watkins was the last officer remaining. He led a thirty-man bayonet charge against approximately fifty enemy infantry from the 271st Infantry Division's Bakery and Slaughter House Companies, practically wiping them out. Finally, at dusk, separated from the rest of the battalion, Watkins ordered his men to scatter and after he had personally neutralized an enemy machine-gun nest, he led them back to safety. Lt. Watkins' intrepid leadership saved his men and directly determined the outcome of the battle. For his actions at Barfour, Lieutenant Tasker Watkins was awarded the Victoria Cross.

2019-12-28(A) O Ramaille vs British winA desperate last CC from the Germans at low odds could have helped win the game. However, The British got the Ambush and killed them all. No more Germans could stop the British to exit. A simple introductory infantry scenario where decisions are key.
2018-11-26(A) Tom Abromaitis vs Travis Crowe German win
2017-10-06(D) Chuck Dye vs JohnH British win
2017-07-07(D) Greg Krane vs Scott Key German winGermans got lucky multiple ROF for its Medium machine gun that immediately wounded and casualty reduced one British leader and casualty reduced a squad. This set the tone for British luck as they didn't break a single German squad until the last turn. British rolled at least three more box cars on rally attempts and morale checks during the game.
