No Happy Rest - The Matrix Games version of West Front
Hill 112, 10 Km Southwest of Caen, France (Best played against human opponent): The task of clearing the crossroads at le Bon Repos was given to the 2nd Glasgow Highlander Battalion, of the 46th Infantry Brigade, 15th Infantry (Scottish) Division. At 21:30 hours on July 15th, 1944, the attack jumped off. Assisted by Monty's moonlight, the attack would advance down the slopes of Hill 112 from the northeast. The Highlanders were heavily supported by Churchills from the 107th Regiment (Royal Armored Corps), "Funnies" and Crocodiles from the 79th Armored Division, as well as machine guns and mortars from the 8th Middlesex Battalion. British forces were unsure of where the German defenders were holed up so the Churchills fired HE rounds into every likely defensive position. The Highlanders cleared Esquay at around 23:00 hours. At this point the Germans, believing this to be a major assault towards Hill 113, sent reinforcements from the 21st SS Panzergrenadier Regiment, supported by Mark IVs of the 2nd Battalion, 10th SS Panzer Regiment, to blunt the perceived British offensive. The British 6 lbr AT guns went head to head with the Panzers of the 10th SS at point blank range. The British were forced to withdraw back to their original starting positions on the slope of Hill 112.
