The Clearing ETO (id:#61797)
(Rivers to the Reich ID:U39)
Designer: Adapted by Jim Stahler
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Day after day of seemingly endless forest. Constant shelling had turned most of the trees to shattered hulks. Advances were truly measured in yards as each step forward increased the threat of yet another sniper or hidden Spandau. Then, near the road from Richelskaul to Raffelsbrand, the GIs saw treeless sky. Without any command given, the US forces surged forward to take the high ground.
Attacker: American (60th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division)

2017-10-11(A) Jeff B vs Scott Sherer American winVery fun and fast-playing scenario with a little bit of everything. Being that all the Germans set up HIP there were only so many hexes they could be in, so the Americans approached quite safely to the south. That safety was blown however when a 4+1 shot broke the kill stack they had amassed, wounding the 9-2 in the process. This set their approach back by a turn or two as they regrouped for their assault, wary of potential spots for the 8-3-8/MMG/9-1 who had yet to show their faces. The Americans would thank the designer for the sole AE (who provided excellent smoke) and the two DCs (that provided a constant threat) that functioned as a successful tandem. The last two turns proved to be a bloodbath as both sides struggled for control of the hill. In the end the Americans survived some vicious German fire with one GO squad, just enough to fulfill the VC. Great game!
