It seems I may have been the only American to get a chance to win this one. Turn 1, Troy bring on his 26 VG units from area E. They moved into contact with the Americans holding the forward position, but I think because of Troy's inexperience with how movement thru EZOCs works, these units did not get around behind the US forces. The KG 902 forces moved in from the SE and headed for the 3 village Victory locations. Troy was able to take one hex Magaret, but it cost him a step loss and that setup a good US turn 2.
During Turn 2 the Para reinforcements came on and were able to throw the Germans out of Magaret. I was also able to get Paras in all the hexes of the Victory locations and using RM I was able to block most of the roads running west. Finally except for a few lost units that were destroyed during turn 1 combat, the entire US blocking force was able to retreat west and block the main road into the victory area.
At this point, real life hit Troy hard and we were unable to finsih the game. I do believe I had enough to hold on for 2 turns, but it will be nice to see if we can finish this game some other time.
