Just as the Germans think they may be home free, the British guards run down from the building and hold them at gunpoint.

With a deadly volley of .303 fire, the German squad is wiped out.

“They died the way they lived: German.” – Me

Pvt Barry is cut down in a hail of British lead.  Shot down in his prime by two vicious servants of King George.  And a Bren Gun.

Things are going very badly for the Germans.  More dead Nazis than Dead Snow.

Turn 6 (Final Turn)

Sgt. Howling and his furious commandos open fire on the troops in the woods.

The British troops in the Southern building opened fire onto the German Kommandant, killing him instantly.  At this point I conceded as I had one German troop left on the map, and could not score enough victory points to be successful.

We decided that the British played very well, but suspected that the scenario was a little balanced in the defender’s favour with a smaller force (we were playing with 500 point sides, rather than the recommended 1,000).  My main mistake was running into the open too early.  I was hoping I could get the MG-42s into position to cause Massive Damage, but unfortunately, this was a gamble that didn’t come off.
