The Great War: 100 Days Offensive

Last night we revisited The Great War rules. Of course I forgot my camera so I´ll make do with some older pictures of games long past ;o)

A Canadian attack group supported by Whippet infantry tanks attacked a German trench battallion during their retreat to the Hindenburg Line in the summer of 1918.

The Germans had entrenched themselves in a ruined village and had covered the road with medium field guns. The Canadians attacked on the German left flank but their concentrated formations suffered heavily from German HMGs and was slowed down signficantly. Despite losing their frontline platoons the Germans managed to stall the Canadians, knock out one tank and call in a Stormtrooper group as reinforcements. The game remained unfinished due to our late start but the Germans were still firmly entrenched at the end of it.
