This is an interesting scenario and very different from other FoW scenarios I have played. The table is divided into quarters. Each player has a trench line on their side. The main deployment zone for each player is from their trench line to their table edge. The Germans would be the attackers and the British defending. Each side placed an objective in no man's land and near each friendly objective is a patrol platoon. The goal is to capture the enemy objective while defending their own.
|The German patrol with the A7V in support. As the attacker the Germans only had to hold half of their platoons in reserve and could start with a tank on the table. The German trench was also well manned with support weapons running the entire length.|
|The British patrol starts near their friendly objective and supported by guns and HMGs.|
|The first couple of turns had the German and British patrols moving towards each other in no man's land. The Germans were more aggressive and moved to attack. German flamethrowers did their damage but their assault was repulsed by defensive fire.|
|Meanwhile, the British reserves were slowly making their way onto the battle field. They were well positioned to capture the German objective as long as they could make it across the wire and the German reserves didn't get there first.|
|The German reserves enter the battle and make good speed to secure their objective. But before they could clear the trench line they came under sniper fire and the German officers could not get them to advance any further.|
