Victory points 4 US destroyed (2) 6 towns held = 8Vps the best result I have had previous go I only had 1 vp. Interestingly my main success as been in the south with 7th army. Bastogne is probably in peril but St Vith is reinforced and going to difficult to take as for Elsenburn I have got to hope it will die on the vine.
