To the U.S.A. Commander.

The fortune of war is changing. This time the U.S.A. forces in and near Bastogne have been encircled by strong German armored units. More German armored units have crossed the river Our near Ortheuville, have taken Marche and reached St. Hubert by passing through Hompre-Sibret-Tillet. Libramont is in German hands.

There is only one possibility to save the encircled U.S.A. troops from total annihilation: that is the honorable surrender of the encircled town. In order to think it over a term of two hours will be granted beginning with the presentation of this note.

If this proposal should be rejected one German Artillery Corps and six heavy A. A. Battalions are ready to annihilate the U.S.A. troops in and near Bastogne. The order for firing will be given immediately after this two hours term.

All the serious civilian losses caused by this artillery fire would not correspond with the well-known American humanity.

The German Commander.


In fairness my 5 rounds are for test firing the mountain gun when its ready not the mortar :slap:

All part of my cunning plan to lull them into a false sense of security...

I've been practising... I've worked out that if I try and actually throw it at you it will probably head towards the enemy. Brilliant heh! What can go wrong?!

I shall only be firing at the British under circumstances of extreme provocation. Really we should be ganging up on the common enemy :)

When Charlie gets a grenade out though, everyone within half a mile needs to run for their lives.

Thank you Martin. I actually see that as a compliment as I think careful analysis would probably reveal the figure as more like 3ft, plus the 5m kill radius of course!
