Patton Stalled – The Lorraine Campaign

A Doughboys Game held at Modern Airsoft Warfare, Melton Mowbray

Date: Sunday 15th April (Places to camp will be available Saturday night for our pre-game social)



Following the rapid drive across France, rolling up the German defenders before them, General George S Patton’s Third Army reaches Lorraine and, standing before the Maginot Line, it’s supplies of fuel run out.

Tanks grind to a halt before villages, mechanised columns pull up short of their objectives and the army stalls.

Not content to inactively await enough supplies to renew the offensive, Patton orders his infantry forward, to harry the defenders, find supplies and make damn sure they cannot ready themselves unopposed before the juggernaut begins its advance again.

On the other side of the Maginot Line, this delay was nothing short of a godsend. After reeling back through France the German First Army has been given precious time to reorganise and mount a defence of the fortresses long the border.

With precious few resources available, and new recruits declining in quality as time progresses, the Grenadiers of the Wehrmacht must keep back these probing Yankees to secure the breathing space vitally needed to prepare.
