City on the Edge ETO (id:#62238)
(Special Ops 5 ID:O10)
Designer: Chas Argent
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The encirclement of Aachen – the first significant German city reached by the Western Allies – began in earnest on 2 October when the city’s suburbs were attacked from both north and west. After five days of combat, the 30th, attended by tanks of the 2nd Armored Division, had pushed five miles past the West Wall. Progress was so swift that General Hobbs, the 3oth’s commander, declared, “The job is finished as far as this division is concerned.” But scattered German counterattacks began and took the wind out of the advance in front of Aachen, devolving into a series of hostilities among the coal mining villages north of the city.
Attacker: German (Elements of Kampfgruppe von Fritzchen)
Defender: American (Elements of 3rd Battalion, 117th Infantry Regiment, 30th Infantry Division, and 743rd Tank Battalion)
