A Bridge Too Far: A TCOW Campaign
This week, we had five games lined up. The Allied strategy was focused on breaking out at the bridgehead and making a move into Holland from the border. A couple of Allied generals dropped behind enemy lines, but a good number of German spoiler attacks hit the British ground forces hard.
Andrew commands the Allied forces and executes his parachute jump, including some exploitation moves to seize critical roads, bridges, and towns. Greg commands the Axis and orders a general defense along the border.
|Initial attacks are locked in! The focus is along the Dutch-Belgian border areas.|
|Andrew's (Allied commander in chief) Welsh Guards engage Greg's (Axis commander in chief) FJ along the Valkenswaard Road to Eindhoven.|
|Greg's FJ block the way to Eindhoven.|
|David's 11th Armoured Division is counterattacked by Gavin's KG Knaust on the right flank.|
|Pat's notorious KG von Swoboda blocks the way on the left flank.|
|Paul's 82nd Airborne attacks Swoboda's gunline with the support of 30 Corps artillery|
|Greg's FJ counterattack the Welsh Guards!|
|David pushes his troops forward into Gav's troops|
|Jonathan's grenadiers, backed by Panzer Brigade 107, attack James' Canadian infantry.|
|Literally moments after this photo was taken Greg's whole battery was wiped out,... by universal carriers...|
|Damian's Red Devils hold the line against Ryan's KG Knaust in a fight for Nijmegen.|
|The troops buckle down for some Market Garden battles.|
|The results for turn 1.|
