More from the Flames of War Tournament at Woodbridge
Here are some shots of my first game. I was up against a U.S. infantry company controlled by Kyle Burley. I moved out smartly and aggressively, just like the training exercises at Grafenwoehre Panzer Lehr school, and was looking forward to rolling over a whole bunch of infantry! And that is the way it started! My panzers rolled smartly into the little town in the center and up and over the big hill on the right flank. I wiped out the infantry platoon holding the hill. I thought I was doing really well, but those pesky bazookas and a couple of M10 tank destroyers lurking off to the right had made it a bit costly. But I wasn't too worried. I felt I could surely deal with these things and keep right on rolling West. Panzers Vorward! Well little did I know that I had already reached my "high tide." More on that later.
