Crossfire MTO (id:#61405)
(ASL Action Pack # 8 Roads Through Rome ID:AP78)
Designer: Gary Fortenberry
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Acerno is a mountain village astride a tortuous and winding stretch of road leading north from Battipaglia. The road was one of two that connected the beachhead with Highway 7—the main highway to Rome. On 22 September, elements of the US 3rd “Rock of the Marne” Infantry Division closed on the village. The German rear guard, a reinforced company, is composed largely of Second Line Infantry. Unfortunately, for the Americans, the defenders are armed to the teeth. Excluding the anti-aircraft weapons on four half-tracks, the Germans have seven machine guns, three of which are “heavies.” The attackers also have to contend with Hidden units, including an anti-tank gun, a pair of infantry guns, a medium mortar, and a squad (or half-squad) potentially armed with a PFk.
Attacker: American (I and L Companies, 3rd Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment, F Company, 2nd Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment)

2015-10-23(D) Kermit Mullins vs Christopher Brackney DrawTwo turns down and the Americans are well inside the Board 10 Village. The Shermans are all intact and will soon drive on Board 46. My guns are all still hidden at the current time. My Germans have to hold out in Turn 3. Game was not completed.

2015-02-02(D) Russell Dewhurst vs Daniel Soukup German win
2014-06-22(A) Lee Bray vs German winA nicely unusual situation with the US attacking from two opposing directions into a village overlooked by level 3 hills. I was the US and everything went well for the first turn as I revealed a couple of German Dummies and was poised to attack into the village on turn 2. Things progressed well on Bd10, but unravelled on Bd 46 as my attack suffered a bloody nose with a fair few breaking units. That mess took me a turn to sort out which set back my timetable. My setup and plan was flawed as I had not thought enough about how long it would take to reach some of the Bd 46 buildings. In the end, I accounted for all but one of the German vehicles quite quickly and pushed forward capturing board 10 handily, but was too slow on Bd 46. By the end I was 5 buildings short of victory and conceded at the end of US T6. A good scenario which I would play again although it seems quite tight - there's not much margin for error for the US, but this may apply to the Germans too.
2013-10-20(D) Richard Carter vs Kevin Klausmeyer German winKevin attacked from both sides of both boards. He had some poor rolls early on but it still came down to a last CC in which I got lucky and ambushed him then snuck away to be able to take back control of 1 building. Very fun scenario.
