The battle for TIM (Triangle In Moselle February 1945)
The "Saar-Moselle triangle." was similar to the West Wall itself, a defensive position two miles deep, fronted by dragon's teeth or antitank ditches and composed of pillboxes and concrete bunkers reinforced by field fortifications the terrain is rolling and sharply compartmentalized, in many places covered with dense woods. All in all rugged terrain with few roads that would support Armour.
At dawn on the 18th January 1945 the storm broke. For twenty minutes German mortars and artillery rained down on the forward positions of the US troops then the German uniforms appeared attacking the front that the Allies were supposed to be taking. This was the last German Offensive.
Confusion was all around with probing attacks from both sides until the Allies managed to start their own offensive. At dawn on 27 February they crossed the Moselle and made a bridgehead with Rangers and US Infantry leading the charge for the ancient town of Trier.
Defense of Trier itself remained a responsibility of Army Group B's Seventh Army and the 2nd Mountain Division was moved up to stop them.
Our game focuses on this engagement with General Patton calling on a British Airborne formation to protect his Left Flank and Germans fighting for the fatherland.
As with previous events hosted by our group, we absolutely insist that you operate within your designated squad and follow the instructions of your squad leader. This will be a big part of the player experience and itâ€™s non-negotiable. We want people to have fun but we won`t tolerate lone wolves or freestylers as it destroys the game scenarios and spoils the enjoyment of the many.
