Christmas brought An Army at Dawn and my first foray out of the Kokoda jungle. Played scenario 1 solo, the French are defending a town from a US assault...

I set the French up in the town with a platoon dug in on the nearby hill to provide flank protection. The US setup with a fire support base on a hill in range of the town (HMGs and mortars) and the infantry on the flank to use hills to mask their approach to the town but with the French flank (Ff) units to negotiate.

As I haven't played PG for a while I completely forgot both sides off map artillery support for the whole game!

Off we went with the US infantry carefully approaching the Ff to swamp them with DF then assault. This worked but took too long (too careful?) leaving only 4 or 5 turns to assault the town.

The US fire support was quite effective as was the two stack infantry fire group allowing the third stack to assault the first town hex. Time ran out with the French still holding 2 town hexes and contesting the third for a marginal win. Surprisingly the French had lost about 7 or 8 steps and the US only one so I think I will take more risks in future.

Thoroughly enjoyed this scenario and can't wait to try more.
