St Martin-de Cenilly, South West of St Lo: July 29th, 1944. (Scenario Size: Battalion. Head to Head or United States Human vs AI) The roads to the South East of Roncey and Montpinchon were a mess, with German units from the north and west jammed together trying to break free from the sack the US was building in the area. An unlikely group of units made up from 2.SS-Panzer-Division Das Reich and the Fallschirmjäger.Regt.6 making their way to safety, ran across a hasty roadblock of the US 4th Infantry Division. They overran the outpost but were held as the US infantry fell back to the positions of 78th Field Artillery Battalion.
