Recently Andy set up a historically inspired Chain of Command game down BIG for Phil, Jenny and myself based around battles for the village of Stonne in May 1940 (the village historically changing hands seventeen times over three days of fighting between the French and Germans). In this game the French (Phil and myself), now with heavy armour support, attempted to recapture the village from the Germans (Jenny).
Well, despite the valiant efforts of the brave men of France and the noble sacrifices of many, the village of Stonne remained in Nazi hands... Another enjoyable game, I was quite optimistic until Jenny sprung that third Gruppen on us late in the game. The least said about the off-table machine gun or the performance of Phil's Char 1B bis (retreat from a PaK 36!!!) the better... :-)
