Astride Hell's Highway ETO (id:#61142)
(Winter Offensive Bonus Pack 2011 ID:WO5)
Designer: Ken Dunn
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
 
Balance:
GermanBritish / American
Overview:
Operation Market-Garden’s timetable was horribly off. Feldmarschall Model recognized that disrupting the supply train was the easiest way to defeat the offensive, so he assigned various units the task of assaulting the road’s defending forces. The 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment was stretched thin in its sector. Model committed Colonel von der Heydte’s Fallschirmjager-Regiment 6 at Veghel, where they were fought to a standstill by the paratroopers. However, this action allowed Kampfgruppe Jungwirth to make a thorough reconnaissance down the highway. As they approached the hamlet of Koevering, Jungwirth’s men eyed eagerly a long line of British supply vehicles sitting astride Hell’s Highway in apparent safety, waiting for von der Heydte’s troops to be defeated so they could bring up the needed supplies.

Defender: British / American (2nd Household Cavalry, 44th Royal Tank Regiment and 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment, and 1st, 2nd, 3rd Battalions 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment)

2019-07-31(A) patrick palma vs Fabio Mazzucchelli German win
2019-06-30(D) Stephen dedier vs Johnston, Mike British / American winThis scenario is tough on the American/British forces. I managed to hold the town against the initial German assault but wound up with significant German forces embedded in the concrete buildings along the roadway. My AC's managed to find 2 of the 88's and do some damage to the German infantry before succumbing to fire. My large scale attack was broken up pretty badly by the last hidden 88 (taking out 2 tanks) but the Para's managed though assault fire to push into the woods and take out one of the 88's with a lucky shot from the 105 taking out the 88 defending the town. I began rooting the Germans out of the town with smoke from the Shermans and CC. Unfortunately Mike's CC rolls were great keeping me from getting him all out. We were left with 3 significant German stacks, one in a concrete building, one in the woods North of the town but still placing fire on the road and one on the opposite side. The Para's through sheer perseverance and losses to the last 88 took out the far stack. Then the dice turned in my favor. I 6 up 1 shot with all MG's from an immobile Sherman managed to break all 3 units in the woods. That let me concentrate virtually everything on attacking the concrete building. I managed a WP shot on them to help conceal my assault but Mike's dice betrayed him and let me get all my remaining Para's adjacent. Pinned a unit in the building and had a 9-2 leader so got the ambush and held out in melee keeping 13FP off the road. Without a good run of the dice for me this would have been impossible. As it was, I only took the game in the last CC of the last turn.
2012-10-22(D) Kevin Killeen vs Ken Young German winGerman need not attack. Can dig in and have enough firepower to deny USA player the win.
2012-07-20(A) Richard Carter vs Damon British / American winI did not send enough troops to take the buildings initially and had to try to get the FP on the road. It actually looked good until second to last turn and my troops were decimated by a bunch of american firepower.
