GAME 3: A Delaying Action

After a victory at Livry, and showing some concern about the number of Support Options the British forces have available, the German force has decided to pass the initiative back to the British and pull back in an organised retreat to Villers-Bocage. This will allow them a better defensive position and time to dig an entrenchment.

After last mission, the German forces suffered no casualties, with the British forces suffering one casualty and an injury. The injured trooper was able to rejoin his platoon in time for this mission as the German forces decided to retreat.

British: 22 men. 1 Senior Leader, 3 Junior Leaders, 18 troops

German: 24 men. 1 Senior Leader, 3 Junior Leaders, 20 troops

All newly promoted Junior Leaders were accepted by their men after the previous battle and have no command penalties.

At this time the British and German personality list and force chart will remain the same as last mission.

GAME 6: Flank Attack

** Please Note. Alex will be on holidays for a 6 week period. No campaign games will be played in that time but I’ll continue putting up CoC/ Army posts.

Game 6: Mission 5: Flank Attack – Not played. British withdrawal.

Update: Thinking about his difficult situation, Sgt Hardball requested a strategic withdrawal to more defensible ground. This would also allow him more time for his troops to return to duty. HQ agreed and the order was given to move back to the hilltop west of Villers-Bocage.

This withdrawal will allow the 14 stragglers and injured to be combat ready again, giving Sgt Hardball more of a fighting chance,

GAME 7: Attack on an Objective

** Please Note. Alex is still on holidays, he’ll be back soon. No campaign games will be played in that time but I’ll continue putting up CoC/ Army posts.
