Gräbner's Charge ETO (id:#61468)
(Arnhem: The Third Bridge 4 ID:ATB2)
Designer: Kurt Martin
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
 
Balance:
German (SS)British
Overview:
SS Captain Viktor Gräbner had been awarded the Knight’s Cross just hours before the British landings. His valuable armoured recon group was soon rushed south to check foe paratroopers near Nijmegan. But after Gräbner crossed the Arnhem Bridge late on the 17th, the British 2nd Para Battalion captured it behind him. When Gräbner returned he found the way bloacked. He decided to rush the British in the morning to catch them napping. At 0900, Gräbner signaled the charge from his captured Humber AC by pumping his fist in the air. The leading three or four armoured cars quickly weaved around wrecks from the previous night’s action and disappeared into downtown Arnhem, untouched. The half-tracks struggled to keep up, while behind them rolled a few hapless trucks with the last SS troopers. When these vehicles neared the first houses, the carnage began. British antitank guns, PIAT rounds, and grenades demolished the opentopped vehicles. The ‘small’ group of British paratroopers turned out to be a full battalion well dug-in and prepared for his assault. Somewhere in the confusion Graebner himself was killed, but it is uncertain when exactly.

2012-10-02(A) Vic Lauterbach vs MA German (SS) winNot exactly fun, but exciting - led with the (sacrificial) 250/1s and got both Pumas and a couple 251/1s with passengers off the map. British TH DR luck factor plays a big role in this one. I prefer the more attractive CH ATB map, and it's interesting to compare this one to CH ATB2 Grabner's Charge.
