Allies 4, Axis 1, Pointe-Du-Hoc Scenario

This scenario involves the Allies working to get over hills towards dug-in Axis troops, half of whom were in bunkers, the other half behind sandbags. The Axis soldiers are spread evenly, but there are only two units per section. The Allies hold a slight advantage in numbers, nine to six. On paper, this looks like a tough one for the Allies.

Not much of a contest really. Since the hills blocked most of the Allied movements, they lined everybody up behind the hills until everybody was all in order, and ready to go. All their soldiers started on the left flank or in the center. Since Axis artillery was on the Allied right, the Allies saw no reason to try to go for the right.

Once everything was all lined up, and the Allies were out of range of the Axis artillery, the Allies just played right flank cards, one-by-one, until they were all gone. Meanwhile, the Axis moved their artillery back into the forest.

The Allies began the assault by playing a "move all on the left card". Since all the Allied units are elite, they climbed up the hills are started firing. The Axis started taking hits.

The Axis was only able to counter with a single Allied hit. The Allies were able to take out the lead Axis unit, who was behind sandbags. The other Axis unit on the Allied left still clung to their bunker.

The Axis tried in vain to thwart the Allied push, but it was their repositioned artillery that was doing all the damage. This damage was to a lone Allied unit that was just barely in range, and hiding behind hills. This was on the extreme right of the line of Allied soldiers, roughly in the middle of the field.

The Allies cleaned out the last of the Axis troops in the bunker, and began to push right, towards the Axis middle. By this time, the Axis unit on the Allied left had abandonded its original position, and began sniping at the same unit the Axis artillery had softened up.

Next, the Allies began a two-sided thrust towards the Axis units dug in, in the Axis center. They found a bit of success in the subsequent firefight. Meanwhile, between the Axis artillery and the Axis infantry, they managed to finally take out the unit on the right end of the Allied line.

Finally, the Allied push proved too much of the hapless Axis forces. Three units of Allied infantry were able to take out the remaining Axis infantry. These two units fell quickly. That gave the Allies a total of four points, and the game.
