Designer: George Kelln
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
By late morning, the 1st Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment was finally able to cross Purple Heart Draw, but had suffered heavy casualties. Meanwhile on the east side of St-Georges-d'Elle, the Germans still held the lower end of Purple Heart Draw. It was decided that in an effort to draw off any Germans from reinforcing their position in front of the 1st Battalion’s main effort, the 3rd Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment would launch a series of diversionary attacks. Company L, 23rd Infantry Regiment started forward, tasked with the clearance of the eastern half of St-Georges-d'Elle, but no sooner had it cleared the last hedgerow just north of the town, when it too came under heavy fire...

2019-06-18(D) David Garvin vs Eric Groo American win
2014-01-04(D) Steve Bowen vs RS German winA decent little urban attack scenario where the Germans need to set up to the front and then fall back without taking too many losses. Primarily serves as good practice for the big Purple Heart Draw Tactical Mission. In our game it looked like the Yanks would make an end around for the win in the late game but a late game, very low odds, low Firepower German shot ended up breaking a whole stack of American squads. The 6 morale of 1st Line units killed my opponents last chance.
2013-10-27(D) Richard Jenulis vs Brent Morris German win
2013-09-14(D) Jonathan Davis vs Voss Graham German winThe Americans were looking like the likely victor until one of the AFVs already in a VC hex broke its MA and couldn't repair it by game end.
2011-10-09(A) Fred Ingram vs Jeff Coleman American winJeff & I both agree this scenario requires an up front defense. At least up front to the 1st hedgerow that the Americans have to cross. Unfortunately, Jeff did not set up in front with other than a token squad- but that only contributed to the loss - not caused it. The mines and the wire were both placed on the left American flank. Unfortunately, the Americans had decided prior to setup to make the major move in the center and right (and ironically - only send a diversionary attack down the left board edge). The mines killed one half squad and the 7-0 leader, but the other squad made it through. One Sherman went to both flanks. The one on the right flank was burned by a panzerschreck. Luckily, the German gun crew double broke in 2 successive phases so did nothing. The tank o0n the other end got a critical hit agains a squad and also was able to place WP twice to help tamp down the defense on the other side of the draw.
