|German infantry at edge of village. MG in building on left.|
The game was fought across a 8ft by 6ft table. The Belgians commanded by Colin attacked on the left flank to take 2 low hills held by the Germans under Bart Zynda whilst I with the French attacked a village held by Germans commanded by Hugh Wilson.
|Belgian grenadiers take the walled field|
On the left wing 4 units of Belgian infantry made good progress against the Germans who decided to advance to meet them head-on with their 2 battalions. The arival of a Minerva armoured car proved decisive and the Belgians pushed the initial Germans back, taking the 2 low hills and wiping out them and their supporting Mg and artillery. They then held their ground against a counterattack by 2 fresh German battalions.
|French close on the village - just seconds from disaster|
|Chasseurs D'Afrique charge home...sabre vs picklehaube|
They work okay if you like removing massive numbers of casualties. However you can always recycle the troops back onto the table as we did in this game..
