|Stuarts double then get ambushed|
|who ambushed who?|
At the at the same time he had 3 more Stuarts advancing on the other objective and infantry moving up the middle. Both under cover so the 88s had no clear shot.
Turn 3 arrived and I got my reserves! 3 Panzer IV moved to save their commander and the two bailed survivors of the Pz II Platoon.
Over the next three turns Dan tried to kill my Pz IIs he got one more, but my Panzer IVs steadily killed Stuarts. My 88s also managed to get one tank on that side of the board. Dan Also tried to Flank the 88s on the other side of the board but went a turn early and got burned as his tanks for killed by my 88s. Even on Turn 6 Dan was still driving on my men. Dan used his medic Token to re-roll a company moral (not sure I would have) and launched a final desperate attack with his CinC and 2IC but in the end he never did kill that last PZ II. This gave me a 6 to 1 win but folks it was much closer than that! I won this battle because I happened to throw a 5 for my reserves the fist chance I could if I had not Dan would have probably won the game on turn 4 or 5.
Dan was very gracious in defeat especially considering the frustration he must have felt at not getting that Last PzII! I still find it hard to believe that Dan got this good with this list in approximately 4 weeks! Watch this fellow he's dangerous!
