Operation Martlet - New Games 3 & 4

Strong jumpstart in 2016: 3 days of the new year and we have played two new games of the Martlet Campaign for Chain of Command. We fought on the scenario 3 table, with a first German victory on New Year's day but only to be defeated afterwards on Sunday.

The Scenario 3 represented a key position of the German defense line and its loss represents a major setback. In addition, the German infantry has suffered significantly in the process; and despite causing casualties to the British, the latter has a full fresh platoon in reserve while the Germans have to play with the forces supplied at the beginning of the campaign.
