On the left the Paras advanced to the edge of the field, then came under accurate fire from the German squad. Despite their best efforts they were forced to go to ground. Their return fire did manage to kill a few more Germans though, this "few hits but always a kill" effect was starting to cause the Germans some problems as they started to run out of men.
|Boom boom boom...missed!|
Another turn and the FOO managed to bring in the 81mm mortar support. Despite his spotting round being on target, the actual barrage shifted just enough to miss the Germans.....fortunately. As time went on though, the steady attrition of Germans caused their morale to go and they were forced to fall back. Damn und blast. They nearly won, with the US suffering a large number of squad NCO hits, all of which cause a possible loss of force morale. Unfortunately they didn't lose quite enough. Every US squad had their NCO either killed or wounded, which resulted in the platoon officers and NCOs having to step in. It was a good game again though, with Nathan managing another win.

I am now in the process of painting some Jeeps and a kubelwagen. There are 10 jeeps in all, 4 for Nathan and 6 for me, while the Kubel has sat in a basecoated state for about 12 months now, so I have decided to finish it off.
Hope you all have lucky dice, I know Nathan did last Friday. Catch you later.
