Continuing with the Bastogne Campaign on the 4th Turn my club fought three missions; Rchamps, Bizroy, and Noville over the weekend.  This battle matched my US Tank Company against Veit’s (Sounds like Fight in English) Panzer Grenadiers from the 2nd Panzer Division.

AAR – Hasty Attack at Lollange   Leave a comment

Turn 3 or Week 3 of the Bastogne Campaign Continues.  This week I juggled between Longvilly and Lollange.  I picked Lollange because it has an interesting story with Company G from the 110th Infantry Regiment.

Borrowed from the scenario for Cafe Schinker:

Situation: Situation: The 39th Fusilier Regiment is the southern prong of the 26th Volksgrenadier Division’s push towards Bastogne. Fusiliers have crossed the Our River in the early morning hours of December 16th, 1944. Their immediate objective is the town of Café Schinker. The town is defended by “L” Company of the 110th Infantry Regiment of the 28th Infantry Division. The US must try to hold on tow the town, while the German Grenadiers must quickly break this position to clear the way for the Panzers pf the Panzer Lehr Division when they start crossing assault bridges being erected across the Our River.
