Historical Background:
On the 12th of November 1944, the 104th Infantry, 26th US Inf Division, reached the village of Rodalbe on the pursuit of Grenadier Regiment 559 who was retreating towards Bermering. But in the afternoon, a Kampfgruppe of the 11.Panzer Division, with 10 Panther tanks and a battalion of the Panzer Grenadier Regiment 110, counter-attacked and by-passed the 3/104 in Rodalbe, the remnant of US units withdrawing in the Bois de Conthil. The day after, the Germans cleared the village capturing the whole part of the 3rd Battalion.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.

Axis player [Germany] : 5 command cards, you move first.
Allied player [United States] : 6 command cards.

Conditions of Victory:
6 medals.
The four city hexes of Rodalbe form a Temporary Majority Medal Objective worth 1 medal for whoever controls the hill.
So the Allied player begins the game with one medal in his victory path.

Special Rules:
- Use "Specialized Units" rules (Troops 2) to the three Axis units with badges.
