Excellent map but very tricky for the German player to penetrate an organised defensive zone.

This battle is not for the faint of heart as it takes place entirely within a built up area. There are a number of lessons to be learned about fighting in towns, particularly with regard to line of sight(LOS), employment of tanks/AFVs and the occasional building entry quirk which causes your troops to run out into the open on the other side of the building rather than entering through the door directly in front of them!

The British force is well suited for the defence as, being paratroopers, they are very experienced and have tons of SMGs which are devastating at short range. Due to the limited LOS, use of tanks/AFVs is challenging and the PIAT is easily able to take out any German armour. In terms of play balance, I would suggest the following:

1) German Pioneers - the Germans definitely need a company(+?) of pioneers to help with mobility as being forced to move through the streets is lethal; and

2) The remaining German squads could be beefed up slightly as most of them seemed to be around 50% manning.



Overall, a very challenging map and battle with an excellent mix of objectives.
