[Size: Large] [Play H2H only!] Celles, Belgium, 25 December 1944: The German 2nd Panzer Division had made the most progress during the Ardennes offensive, and was positioned a mere 6 kilometers from the Meuse River. General Harmon, the U.S. 2nd Armored Division Commander, contacted headquarters for permission to attack and, after a convoluted series of messages, received permission for a limited counterattack. Harmon responded, "The bastards are in the bag!" Aftermath: Task Force A attacked along the high ground to the West of Celles. Task Force B drove along the eastern ridges. Task Force A made solid progress until it was stopped cold by a section of Panthers, which quickly knocked out three half-tracks. The Panthers were chased away by a flight of fighter-bombers from the 370th Tactical Fighter Group. Task Force B was opposed by isolated guns, tanks, roadblocks and mortar fire and made steady progress. The task forces closed the pincers around Celles while fighting off a counterattack from the main body of the 2nd Panzer Division. Having displayed no real zeal to defend the town, an entire Kampfgruppe was caught in the bag. [Special thanks to Chas Smith for his original scenario development in Advanced Squad Leader].\Uses Patchy Snow Terrain with JSGME.\\Americans vs. Germans, Americans move first.
