Here is my setup for the Germans in the H1 scenario. Please post your ideas on strategy. The units in E6 and G6 are in the foxholes. I placed them there for better visual clarity.
Thanks

The building was also used by my opponent in the 1st trial game I've played. He made a mistake of locating your G1-squad (at the right of the road) even further left, at B1. I started the game by using my both mortar supports, attacking the squad at the building and at the middle, then trying to use a local superiority at the right. It was still a close call... "mistakes were made".

I think your setup is near what we thought would be the "best" shot at the after-the-game-analyzing -session. The goal is so straigtforward that also the countermeasure may be quite straightforward.

Note: We didn't use the foxholes at the haystack -hexes. Even if foxholes are allowed at the jungle and at woods, Ordhards, hay stacks and palm grove were not explicitly allowed. We thought about that but decided to play the rules as written.

Maybe the hex types could be divided into a few categories (flat, watery, ?) and 19.1 definition of "open hex" replaced with something like "flat land hex"?

Is that after the first turn? Because the Americans have to come in between D1 and H1...

Mark, Yes this is after the Americans have moved. The Germans turn is up next. BTW those Light Barrages made nasty work of my foxholes, I did not have the presence of mind to take more pics dammit, to give everyone the blow by blow. Going to do that on the next play through.

I played this once or twice solo. I think I just laid a bunch of smoke and ran right at the Germans!
