The battlefield:
A plain valley with a river in the middle, some woods and fields are evenly distributed across the terrain.
Two main roads drive parallel to the river and two secondary roads crossing it. On the left side a bombed village, on the other side an intact one.

Mission rolled: Counterattack

Deployment:
Nicolas choose to defend from the top left corner and I choose to attack from the bottom left.
He decided to left the StuG and the Recon platoon in reserve and the 88 in ambush. The PaKs, the HMG and the Panzerschrecks were evenly combat attached to the panzer grenadier platoons.
I put all but the artillery platoons ready to sprint towards the right side of the battlefield in order to cut the reserves arrival and to press on the right objective. A Nisei rifle platoon kept pressure on the left objective.

Battle:
German small arms fire forced the left Nisei Platoon to stop and dug in.
The StuH pressed forward but were caught by side shots from the Stuarts and artillery barrages forcing a morale check which was failed.
Nebelwerfer fire cause a platoon moral check on the right Nisei Platoon which was passed.
8.8 shoot from the ambush on the Stuarts killing one before being destroyed by the return fire.
Intelligence and recon destroyed the heavy platoon before falling to the grenadier platoon fire.
Panzerspäh arrived from reserves and welcomed by combined action of AT guns and pioneers.
Remaining Stuarts were destroyed by PaKs fire.
StuGs arrived from reserves and exchanged fire with the tank destroyers for 3 turns. StuGs were finally destroyed by Pioneers. Wolverines were caught by nebelwerfers and forced to flee.
Finally Nicolas was forced to test his company but even the “Elite Troop” special rule didn’t help. 4-3 for the Allied!
