Meanwhile back on the left bank of the Meuse.....
At this point I told the French that one of their Colonels was to be court-martialled for losing the position, but he got away with it by virtue of being dead. (this actually happened)
A fresh regiment was rushed to the front from a rather better division and the French players were asked to plan an immediate counterattack. (this too actually happened)
The Germans were asked to prepare a defensive plan.
Next time I will share with you the plans
