Had first 'live' game of this interesting light game on the first week of the classic Bulge Offensive.
A fun little game with light rules overhead.
Only rule that required much re-reading was the targeting of specific unit types in a multi-unit battle as based on type, numbers thereof and a hierarchy of targets.
Fun game with Germans (guess who ? yep thats right mon pere) pushing on a broad front against my US forces.
He failed to achieve a decisive breakthrough anywhere but did advance steadily (more of a rectangle than a bulge).
We did not finish game, having to finish on 1st impulse of 19th December  turn (there being 3 impulses each per day turn).
But whilst US where holding on their left flank and centre the right flank (around Bastogne) was looking decidedly dodgy with a thin crust of weak units facing strong German units with fresh reserves arriving.
Longest route to Meuse crossings for Germans however.
Fun little game we must try again.
Only real downside is the rather small areas to hold the largish counters especially on 'start' lines, not so further 'inland'.

Some memories flooding back after looking at these photos.  I auctioned off this game for FAB BULGE which plays somewhat similarly as a area movement game but faster.  This is a good game, however!
