The mist crowns a dark forest
Only crows break the silence under the snow covered trees
A remote forest dirt road in the gloomy winter morning light...
Into the wild...no human dares to come
But growing roars are followed by the apparition of two steel monsters...
then bigger ones...
Who are those creatures ? Who ride such powerful mounts ?
fuel fumes and engine roars
The descent by the snow covered road seems never ending, some men try to sleep, others are too excited by the fight soon
"Where is the Hamlet, Klaus ?"
"You are sure we'll find an bridge ?
We need it, we need Die Brucke !"
The days before...
A man obsessed by his mission...
Leading a powerful kampfgruppe in a daring breakthrough behind american lines
Leaving in its wake... a wave of terror slauthering americans prisoners and belgian civilians ...
But those damned US engineers blew out every bridges when the panzers tried to cross them !
His Kampfgruppe is denied any means to cross the Amblève river
He needs an intact bridge...or the drive to the Meuse river, his objective, will be doomed !
Little Kampfgruppen are organised to recon the little forests dirt roads and find some forgotten bridge...
(Next time, the AAR: fight for Die Brucke)
