In stark contrast to my last game against Nigel which went on for an impossible number of turns, my game against Shadow was over in two turns ☹️
The mission was Counter Attack and my Ten PzIV were up against a 20 strong Soviet Lend Lease tank army supported by Armoured cars and mechanised infantry.
The mission was Counter Attack and unfortunately I was the defender forcing me to leave one of my two platoons off table in Mobile Reserve. I chose to have my remaining PzIV platoon in ambush, leaving me just with my HQ on table.
Even though I was nestled behind trees & buildings the Soviet air found my HQ & destroyed my command tank.
Unfortunately my ambush was less than affective, only destroying two Soviet Shermans.
The return fire from the Soviet tanks destroyed on and bailed a second tank. The assault from the Soviet infantry soon destroyed the remainder of the platoon, giving Shadow a 6-1 win
