Overview:
The brigadiers commanding 69th Infantry and the supporting 8th Armoured Brigades had accompanied B Squadron of the Dragoons Guards up Hill 102, south of Cristot. Opposition was light, but infantry would be needed to secure the position. The Green Howards were summoned, and looked with dismay at the difficult country they would have to cross. At least only slight opposition was anticipated. Unbeknown to the Green Howards or their brigadiers the Hitlerjugend Division appreciated the value of the hill and, following the British recce, slipped reinforcements into the position.
Attacker: British (D Company, 6th Green Howards / B Squadron, 4/7th Royal Dragoon Guards)

2017-10-07(D) Jason Wert vs Anthony Flanagan German (SS) winASLOK Purple Rain Mini played with the British balance. Tough scenario on the British with the option to only move tanks or infantry. Anthony made a great push toward the far hill, but an immobilized panther and active panther effectively blocked the assault

2015-06-06(A) Jim Kloss vs Bob Eury DrawI had to concede early to attend a sporting event, however I felt as if my British attack was running out of time due to the slow going in the bocage. The either/or movement restrictions on the British armor and infantry was unique and necessitated that the Shermans form a mutually supporting hedgehog at the crossroads until the infantry could link up. I just didn't have time to make it happen.

2013-04-11(D) X von Marwitz vs David Wallace British win
2012-12-08(D) Raoul Duke vs MH German (SS) winEven after burning both Panthers, the British still have a very, very tough job. No infantry got past hexrow 'Q'.
2012-09-25(A) Andy Beaton vs Martí Cabré German (SS) winOnce I lost my tanks, I was at the mercy of the German Panthers. I was able to get some guys to the bottom of a hill by turn 6, but they didn't stay alive there very long. We'll play Second Cristot as a rematch.
2012-07-05(A) Fred Ingram vs Chris Hofland German (SS) winWell, the British set up primarily to move on the North flank towards the hill. Although I did not feel I wasted infantry movement, they sure needed another turn. They also needed the rain to stop, but it actually increased (and then we forgot to apply the +1 modifier on quite a few shots - although that did not affect the game outcome). Early on, one of the Panthers bogged going over the bocage, then mired when attempting to unbog. The British really needed the rain to stop to be able to move in the tanks for a single turn to lay smoke (or burn themselves) to provide cover for the advancing infantry. The British conceded at the end of turn 5 after it was apparent they would only get one squad onto the victory area. Good delaying play by the Germans
2012-03-24(D) Michal Bonaventura vs Permonick German (SS) winBritish tried to attack german AT at end of the road and 3 his tanks was destroyed. German tank smashed some British infantry. In the last german turn, when some opponent's infantry crossed the line above the hill, german leader became berserk and "infected" most of large infantry stack, which crushed last hope of british...
