Abandon Ship! ETO (id:#62804)

Designer: Jeff Cebula
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
In an effort to determine the strength and location of the Germans before Bastogne, Company I of the 501st Parachute Infantry was ordered into the town of Wardin. Upon reaching the village a roadblock was found, astride the Wardin-Bastogne road. A short firefight ensued, routing the outnumbered German defenders. The paratroopers took possession of the dreary Belgian house and organized a defense. Not long afterwards, the sounds of approaching tank engines grew louder and louder—signaling the arrival of the Panzer Lehr Division. The 130 or so men of Company I were no match for such a force. They fought bravely -- one man knelt with a bazooka in the middle of the street and knocked out the lead tank before return fire cut him down, other men with bazookas accounted for three more – but there were more panzers and too many panzergrenadiers. Captain Wallace gave the order to “Abandon Ship!” He later died leading a small rearguard around the roadblock, keeping an escape route open for his men.

2019-02-15(D) Jeff B vs Dale Wetzelberger American winAmerican plan was to play a strong upfront defense and then get the hell out of Dodge. This plan took a backseat though as the initial repulsion went so well. It took the Germans three turns to get past the American setup line. Turn 4 saw the StuG get taken out in CC by a 10-2 led squad, while a Panzer MALFd it's gun. Turn 5 saw the Germans feel the press of time and, if they could get a tank or two in my rear, I would have a rough time running for the exit (which I needed to start doing). Alas, all three tanks for taken out with bazookas. Good scenario.
