Team private forums will be opening shortly. You should all be able to see your respective sections, if you can't drop me a PM.

While they wont be for discussing team tactics as such (the only tactic is follow your orders!) they will be a place where commanders can give you specific information on what is expected of you in the field and your standing orders. Direct orders will be given when on the battlefield but by then you should have a good understanding of the structure of the event and have had the opportunity to raise questions both practical and theoretical.

And the reason for separate private sections? Jeds, SAS and Germans will all be playing completely separate scenarios with different objectives. As in a real battle, commanders will be organising men and materiel as they see fit and according to information received. This is an unscripted and fluid event not a collection of games. We have 700 acres in which to play out this scenario - it is as likely you don't see any enemy for 6 hours as be entrapped in an ambush inside the first hour. Anything is possible!

First line: you should all be able to see your respective sections, if you can't drop me a PM.

I've now added you to the private section, sorry for missing you off.

I'm sure you haven't missed much, Sandy. Germans talking about their sausages, probably.


You've got nothing to ein, zwei, drei, vier

But Chomley insists a quality inspection of our sausages is vital to the war effort.

This is true. Sausages will be held at the attention for inspection at 6am morning glory, prior to gobbling at breakfast.

I hear the Allied's are planning a chopper inspection themselves...

Allied and Axis private forums have now been made visible (but not postable) to all.

I see some players have already dived in to see what the others were up to! What should be clear is that both sides had completely different scenarios and objectives, neither side knew what the others were doing, and so the only plans that could be made could be in response to intelligence received - be it sighting reports or radio interceptions or interrogation or good old gut feelings.

The highly visible German forces didn't have any prospect of laying ambushes but could disrupt nefarious allied activities by patrolling and controlling key points and so forcing allied movement into certain areas. Patrols could get lucky and stumble on enemy groups but very small allied squads meant damage should have been minimal and objectives still achievable.

So the allies, by stealth and guile, should have been able to move without being under German gaze - avoidance and extreme cation being the watch words. If there were to have been any shots fired from the allies on Saturday then it should have been hit and run or self defence and any assault on Sunday would only be achievable by as large a group as possible aided by distraction.

Very much so, when we got bumped I went to ground to conceal my position, we weren't quite sure how many Germans there were until it was too late.

I imagine that for Special Forces, despite being highly trained highly trained and because they are highly trained, being behind enemy lines was more about living by your wits and being resourceful than 'by-the-book' military discipline. Instant decisions have to be made, get it wrong (or indeed right) and that's it, games up, no where to go, no back up, no second chances! Terrifying thought - I know I'd never have volunteered back then!
