The B&P Times
Two games on, my mid-war desert series with Russell has us tied at 1:1. For Game 3, Russell had just built up 3 Churchill IIIs and was raring to let them loose in the desert and so we revved up our engines and kicked up some dust.
With his Kingforce Churchills in support, Russell chose to attack and of course, the DAK chose to attack to. Rolling a 5, we drew a 'Free-for-All' mission.
Our previous game saw Russell's Desert Rats 1st Battalion, The Rifle Brigade, Motor Company put up a dogged defence around the town and taking the victory from my DAK Panzer Regiment 8, 15th Panzer Division, Panzer III Company.
Now for our rematch, Russell wanted to try out a Tank-heavy force. I, on the other hand, swapped out my Panzer IV platoon for some Lorraine Schleppers and Marders.
They (Americans and British) have fought together in every major conflict in since World War I. have shared intelligence with each other that almost no other two nations would dare. and have always referred to their relationship as "special".
The Bear will examine the infantry options of the British and the Americans. Their pros and cons. lastly, how to pulverise them into a capitalist skid mark on the road to socialist Europe!
