The Allies captured Mockern quickly and destroyed a lot of guns. The French fell back. On turn 40 it was still a major French victory. By turn 42 it had slipped to a draw.

The fight went down to the last turn from a French minor victory to a draw. Reinforcements arrive on scene in last few turns which helped turn the tide.

I enjoyed it as the Allies.

This is a difficult scenario for the Allies to win. They must move and secure victory points quickly and cause substantial damage. French are well lined up and while at a disadvantage numbers wise, they control the tempo of the game on the defensive.

I think the French can make a fist of it if they play a long game.

Difficult for French but not impossible
