Belgian Blitzkrieg ETO (id:#62908)
(ASL Journal #12 ID:J182)
Designer: Lionel Colin
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
On 27 May, the Germans renewed their offensive on the Lys River line. The Belgian 11ème division d’infanterie was unable to withstand the German attack, and a gap appeared in the Belgian lines. The only reserves available were the Groupement Morel de Westgaver consisting of two carabiniers cyclistes regiments and some AFV from the chasseurs d’cheval. This group was tasked to close the gap near the village of Knesselare to allow the 11ème DI to regroup. German Heinkel bombers had severely punished the village, destroying the church and rubbling or setting fire to much of the rest. Forward elements of the group pushed through the village just in time to delay the German advance guard, and heavy fighting quickly erupted.

Last Played:
2017-08-29(A) Martí Cabré vs Francisco Belmonte German winThe Belgians held the stronghold but the German reinforcements bypassed them neatly. Key Belgian defenders broke under precise fire and the Germans quickly gained 3 buildings before the Belgian reinforcements could even enter, so I conceded. I think that if the Germans don't fumble it it's quite impossible to stop them.
2017-08-26(A) Stephen dedier vs Crawford, Brent German winI made it through the 2nd turn this time but didn't have the firepower to resist the Germans. My tanks made it into the battle but couldn't help get the Germans back out of the buildings they took from the infantry earlier.
2017-08-19(A) David Garvin vs Logan Stallings Belgian win
2017-08-04(A) Jeremy Busby vs Dave Reenstra German win
2017-08-04(A) Stephen dedier vs Maciejewski, Jeremy German winMy first play I didn't have enough to hold the initial building. My last unit was broken in the last German phase and routed upstairs but I forget I had to get through another phase and my unit surrendered in my phase.
2017-07-28(D) Dan Best vs Mark DeVries Belgian winSt. Louis ASL Tournament
2017-07-22(A) David Ramsey vs Martin Barker Belgian winWhat a great scenario! Options galore for both players, tactics and meaningful decisions required for both players throughout the game. My Belgians managed to hold on to the first building despite the German onslaught but there was play in the game until the end with a token force managing to get behind the Belgians to wreak havoc. The cycles played their part and saved the building but the Germans were only a good CC roll away from winning a great game.
2017-06-15(D) Jason Wert vs Mike Augustine Belgian winVery epic game with lots going on. Played with the Belgian balance based on some reviews and it seemed well needed. Germans didnt go for Turn 2 rush and bypassed to top of board and played for Village while reducing the forward stronghold. Belgians did very fine withdrawal and managed to create a stiff fight in final house. Last CC phase spelled it out, with the Germans coming one location short. Great scenario and match
2017-06-15(A) Michael Augustine vs Jason Wert Belgian winIt didn't feel like a Belgian Blitzkrieg. I had to artfully fallback starting on turn 1 and continue throughout the scenario. The Belgian tin cans arrived late to provide a little bit a of backbone to help eek out a win.
2017-05-27(A) Christian Knudsen vs Neil Andrews Belgian winIn this playing, Neil, worried that I would attempt to repeat his turn 2 victory, set up quite heavily in the forward VC building. Recognizing this, I threw only just enough at that building to stop him from leaving it, then ran everything else around the flanks toward the village, which I got into in strength on turn 5. Neil didn't figure he would have enough strength to retake it, and so conceded in his turn 5 RPh.
2017-04-29(A) Christian Knudsen vs Neil Andrews German winI set up too lightly in the forward VC building, and Neil made me pay for it by capturing it for the quick victory in turn 2. A fun little scenario.
2017-04-23(A) Rich Weiley vs Dave Wilson Belgian winHeld on for a win as the Belgians. Held the Z6 building throughout the game with the help of the AT gun and the 9-1 directed MMG. The German turn 3 reinforcements bypassed Z6 and headed for the main village where I had only two and a half squads anxiously waiting on the reinforcements. The attackers drove out the garrison of the N5 building and contested the G4 and J6 buildings but the counter attacking force eliminated the Germans in the former and reinforced the garrison of the latter, putting victory out of reach for my opponent. An excellent scenario with high replay value.
2017-04-22(A) Jeff B vs Steve Etzelmueller German winI must be missing something because I don't see the Belgians standing much of a chance in this one. They are forced to heavily defend the forward building to prevent a quick German victory, but if the Germans send a token force to clear it and the rest press forward the Belgians won't be able to extract the forward defenders in time and they will be caught between a rock (the pressing Germans) and a hard place (German reinforcements). Reinforcements will probably end up being a turn too late to prevent a toppling of the next building, and then they will never get it back.
2017-03-29(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Federico Corso Belgian winThis is a highly replayable scenario, with many options for both players. In my opinion is going to become a tournament classic. I put enough forces in Z6 to keep germans out, and slip back some during the second turn. Some good shot on my part and bad morale rolls for the Germans, meant that they were not able to really threaten the second building.
2017-03-29(A) Andy Beaton vs Jeff Wasserman German winHeld on to Z6 without a dice pip to spare, came close to pulling it out but lost a building in a last German turn CC and didn't have the forces to get it back in time. Excellent scenario.
2017-02-19(A) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best Belgian winFantastic scenario. As the Belgians I put a max effort in defending the Z6 building and my opponent put a max effort into taking in for the quick win. In a bloody toe to toe fight, my Belgians held onto the building for 4 turns and the Germans had suffered just enough losses to keep them gaining a second building for the win. So in the final turn, my Belgians managed to hang on and get the win.
