|I meanwhile had managed to rearrange the defenders - with the infantry in the village and the Centurions (with the Brigadier frantically trying to rally them) and Shermans flanking.|
The onslaught wasn't long in coming. The Pakistanis who had plodded across the fields piled into the Shermans and a messy melee ensued.
|The Indian infantry managed to see off the Pak assault but the Sherman battalion was nearly wiped out.|
|The level of Indian casualties caused me a few worrying moments but the bulk of the enemy had been driven off.|
Although I had run this scenario several times before, the most recent was about 5 years ago so I had no clear memory of what had happened in those earlier games (I'll look for photos). Will took to the game with some enthusiasm and proved to be a worthy opponent. He is welcome back any time!
Finally, I should point out that the scenario was adapted from the one on Bob MacKenzie's website.
