First part of the game "The great war"with the scenario 46: Verdun the Mort Homme and the hill 304! As in reality, the fight was terrible: the German player, after a big preparation of artillery gives the assault on the hill of the Mort Homme, the fights in close combat are fierce but the French player remains master of the place after suffering too many losses: there is only one operational unit on this part of the map, but the German player no longer has enough power to break here.
The German player then tries a breakthrough in the center and an attack on the hill 304. These two assaults will last several rounds and drag on in attrition fights. But these maneuvers will pay off because at the end, after a second offensive on the 304 hill, he won the victory.
For the first part we liked the game very much. The rule system allows you to immerse yourself in the dark and apocalyptic atmosphere of trench warfare. The game was punctuated by surprises and a turnaround (battle cards and command cards can give real benefits when used well). This game is a success.
