June 6th! The American Airborne has taken Sainte-Mère-Église…and the Germans want it back!
Ray ran another intense game of Cross Fire last Monday. The battle was fought on 2 boards. One held the city of Sainte-Mère-Église. The other was the area held by German Paras holding of the American forces trying to break through. The Germans were able to recapture Sainte-Mère-Église, but I doubt they were going to hold it as, we poor paras got run over by Shermans, Machine gun jeeps, and M8 armored cars!
Intense fight with a ton of laughs and fun!
The American Infantry are forming up for the attack
Backed by Shermans
The flying jeep column! Yes 2 of these vehicles lived!..
German Paras fighting on. A panzer III would come up to support. Survived an AT attack only to be put out of action by an M8 armored car
American AT gun deploys to kill the panzer III to it’s front. It is disordered, rallies, fires, misses, gets disordered and then killed…about 7 turns of combat!
Where are my panzerfausts!!!
