This is the second Battleground WWII game:
Encounter at St Joost - January 1945
The scenario: The British 8th Hussars had the task of breaking out towards the River Roer. In their path, lay the village of St. Joost with an unfordable stream and one bridge across it. St. Joost was thought to be held by a unit of second-line Germans reservists. Looks like a cake walk. Can the Germans prevent the British from breaking out towards the Roer River?
Rules: Battleground WWII
This was a slightly modified scenario from Squad Leader - Cold Crocodiles. Another member of the HAWKs ran the same scenario earlier in the day using the same terrain and figures but showcasing the new Combat Patrol rule set.
The German defenders used hidden map set-up and movement to make things more interesting.
The British cautiously advance into the village. A view of the British attack as they entered the village with the infantry supporting the Cromwell's advance.

|Danger close - no kidding|
|A Cromwell is brewed up|

As usual, I failed to take enough pictures throughout the course of the battle.
