The scenario has too few turns to reach the urban fight that it's supposed to be about. If a scn is released untested it is not smart to give it few turns. 25 to 30 turns might have been appropriate for a whole day of fighting that this scenario is supposed to represent according to the description.

The the meek player, the Allies may seem to be in an unenviable position. Aggression is everything in this battle. I attempted and was ultimately successful and going wide on both flanks, despite horrendous losses. Had I done the usual frontal attack, again, aggressiveness and vicious penetration is essential. DO NOT allow the Axis to fall back.
