It took a while, but AP35 is finally finished. It was a hard fought game from the beginning. The Germans were still knocking me around up until the last turn. A German 8-3-8 managed to get adjacent to two of my Shermans and knocked out both with a captured Bazooka...dang that really hurt.
A look at the US left where the strongest German effort was made. The German infantry surged forward in Turn 7 and rushed the village. The Shermans managed to send them reeling backwards. Only one German squad...the tough 8-3-8 made it into the village and announced its presence with two flaming Shermans.
On the far left, the US forces were in solid position and the Germans never threatened.
The reserve German armor never made it into the battle.
On the US center and right, things got a little dicey, but the M10 anchored the end of the line and the reserves were coming up in time to deal with the tough 8-3-8.
Without the Shermans, the Germans would surely have taken the game.
