Club Night 4th June

Luke and I played a FOW, joined by Chris Dell and Steve K, with an Italian force of infantry and artillery defending in a cauldron battle against a British armoured force. The infantry company deployed in a large circle, with each platoon occupying half the position , with an artillery battery covering it. The British were lucky with their deployment, enabling them to concentrate their forces against one side of the enemies position, negating half their force. Despite some initial casualties from the guns the British tanks were able to overrun the infantry positions, followed up by their supporting armour. Spread over such a wide position, and with limited antitank suppressed by the 25 pounders, there was little the Italians could do to repel them.
