We desided to stop playing for the Germans had 3 full units near the emty house close to bridge and the US was to far of on the sides to be able to Defend the bridge.
It was a nice game, ut we can see thet if you get a lot of order dice in a row it can realy change the outcome of the game, and the german got alot of order dice.
Hope you all liked the AAR.
