Historical Background:
Hattert Harassment
On the 5th of October the American general Hasbrouck tries a different approach. American troops taken an easterly route around the forest and are to approach and tare to capture Overloon from the other side. Again the Americans go into battle without any reconnaissance so the 88mm canons in castle Hattert remain unnoticed. Within a few minutes 10 tanks are ablaze and the battle is just as bloody as the one fought in the forest. The 88’s are not silenced until air support is called in. The attack has actually already stalled, but fierce fighting continues. The German troops, supported by Panzers, carry out severe counterattacks. The distance between the dug in troops is sometimes no more than a throw of a hand grenade. After three days of hard fighting the American troops are battered and broken. They are withdrawn from the front line to gather strength again . . . .
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.
