The Americans push on with their planned envelopment of the attacking enemy forces. However, the Germans manage to form cohesive firing lines and push back the attempted encirclement.
Due to exceptionally, and unexpectedly, accurate fire, the Paras are forced to break off and retreat to Carentan to await further reinforcements from the beach-head.
Verdict: Not really a representative game, due to particularly 'spawny get' dice-rolling on my behalf. We thought the vehicles were a bit too good (possibly due to Mr G's appalling luck!). Overall, though, a fun game.
