|The small road in the center is also considered key terrain to move the assault troops near the ford.|
|The mortar targeting red line. Note how the German infantry (grey icon is behind the cover of the hedgerows).|
|A mortar round falling behind the hedgerows. Looks like the German infantry team is getting a beating, but with the fog of war on, the intermediate war gamer can only guess by the enemy's volume of fire slackening or disappearing.|
|The assault teams are called up to cross the river. For a few seconds the lack of enemy fire is encouraging.|
|However, an enemy LMG team (grey icon in the foreground) opens up on the assaulters. A nasty surprise.|
|Suppression is called from the fire support team. The effect is almost instantaneous but the infantry fording the river gets rattled. They eventually make it through the ford.|
|All the assault teams have forded and taking cover in the hedgerow line on the far side of the river. The enemy LMG team that caused so much trouble is eliminated with a few grenades.|
|But the left flank is still under fire, apparently from an enemy team located in the second line of hedges. A typical suppress and flank maneuver eliminates the threat.|
|The destruction of the enemy in the center high ground requires a pincer by assaulting forces in the right flank. The enemy team was a platoon HQ.|
|Every gain in terrain results in new contact with enemy forces. This view from the right flank shows an enemy LMG team which can't be destroyed by fire with the forces in the foreground.|
|The left flank is called to move up the hill, yet again. A cautious approach for the already weary troops.|
|The final assault on the last enemy team.|

- In his effort to preclude the enemy from effectively using the high ground, he found that in this type of terrain suppression requires an extraordinary amount of ammunition. Some BAR teams had less than 20 rounds at the end of the scenario.
- He knew that the destruction of the enemy was almost impossible by "attack by fire" missions. The only exception was perhaps the use of the mortar firing on the enemy team in the center. The destruction of the enemy required closed assault which in turn demanded frequent splitting of his forces.
- His scheme of maneuver was completely dictated by successive contacts with the enemy.
