|Looking good but the FSJ soon fell back under heavy fire|
Determined counter attacks restored the British line but were themselves threatened by further FSJ and GBJ assaults. Clever use of Over watch orders allowed the Brits to pin three separate attacks as soon as the Germans broke cover and looked to be leading to a German loss.
|Attack #3 pinned down|
|Attack #4 also pinned|
|Attack #5 pinned - a pattern here!|
In the end the Germans got some luck though as run of bad shooting enabled them to eventually get into contact with their 6th and 7th attacks, pushing the Brits back and routing 2 sections. This gave them a 2-1 lead on objectives captured
|Finally attack #6 works and the emplacement falls|
|FSJ reluctant to attack the Brits on overwatch|
With their final attack the FSJ managed to dispute, but not capture, a third objective whilst a charge by the British HQ section recaptured the ridgeline.
|A desperate dash and bad shooting gives the FSJ a win|
|British HQ clears the hill of Germans|
A fun game played out over two weeks due to the size and intensity of the battle. After a cautious initial phase we saw plenty of action with the FSJ fighting ability to the fore, but the Brits doing well to hold them off until they ran out of units to oppose the focused German attacks.
