[Sticky] The Conclusion .....
first off many thanks to the squads for sticking together and treating there missions with respect and filling in the information. Some good side notes , brave action taking the american grenade kill to save there squad , forgetting there Intel camera and making the person draw it , the capture of a high ranking German officer , the non capture of the American mp even when he died twice so close to the German Hq , Americans taking the 3 points they were not expected to capture.....
10:30 in what seemed like a average day in Severino , suddenly changed , reports across the entire line of a German counter attack started to come in , within minutes there was contact all around the supply depot and the prison of war camp in Severino, Allied forces were caught off guard but soon rallied. In the area of Contrada and Severino small skirmishes had broken out with neither side really getting the edge.
12:00 reports across the line the allied forces had held and German forces had stood there ground or fallen back.
13:30 After Intel was gained from a captured German officer a makeshift counter attack by allied forces towards the road to Avellino was launched , with American and British units hitting 3 key German staging areas , They were not expected to take these positions but just to try and put the Germans back on the back foot, but with the German forces stretched and tired all 3 soon fell to the attackers. With the 3 areas now in Allied control the allied forces dug in and skirmishes once again broke out around the area.
16:00 with darkness setting in, the fighting was dying down ,allied forces had started to fortify the area while the Germans pulled back slowly , at last the road to Avellino was open
it was so close to call in fact was as close as it could be
after going through the missions completed the war effort ratings were
it was so close i went back and double checked it , i thought it would be close as all squads seemed to be working hard , so not really a victory for the allies but at least they got the damm road open at last
Triple check it?
Much better than I expected, really. There were times when it felt the Allies were hammering us in to the ground.
No need to check the papers confirm it and the press never lies
Actually closer than I thought, at lunchtime Martin told me the Brit squad had completed 6 missions in the morning, well the Germans only had 9 for all 3 squads so in the afternoon I tried to speed things up a bit
Great days gaming whoever edged it
I didn't realise it was that close, i do hope you will post a pic of the sketch I made James do. I gave him the camera in the HQ and put it in his hand before we set out!
It was great day.
yup i thought the allies had a greater lead after taking all 3 afternoon objectives , but they dropped some points with getting engaged early, but in the defense of the Germans , they were slightly out numbered this time around and local area knowledge was greater on the allies as well.
So i think all of the axis team can be proud for making it so close
and matt i will post his art up later
as promised the intel drawing lol
as promised the intel drawing lol
See now i think thats better than taking a photo! Pencil to be added to kit list for april gets my vote.
When you have to remember everything you need and just about able to see what you are doing it's hard to do everything right! Especially when the team buggers off before you're ready!
And I think I did a fair job with that picture.
