KGP1 Shadows of Death GE[RMAN Human Player]
STOUMONT, Belgium, 20-21 December 1944 (Night)
Having halted the Kampfgruppe Peiper, those first elements of the 1st SS Panzerdivision 'Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler' near Stoumont,
the 119th Infantry Regiment belonging to the 30th 'Old Hickory' Infantry Division (elite) and the 740th Tank Battalion both
forming the 'Task Force Harrison' have managed to capture the St Edouard sanatorium on twilight time.
This large brick made building was dominating the slopes of the north western approaches of Stoumont close to the Nationale 33,
just like a fortress covered by only one recent, but hastily German laid antipersonel minefield.
Around midnight, enjoying a moonless night & cover by a very thick mist coming up from the nearby Amblève river,
the Germans counter attack! Accompanied by mighty Panther tanks, about a hundred shouting SS troops suddenly burst out of
darkness, furiously charging toward the hospital...

SCENARIO LENGTH: 7 Game Turns / Side B only goes on the Last Turn
VICTORY OBJECTIVE: The side with the required Victory Points is the winner

SPECIAL RULE for the AP minefield:
- While there are no Mines in TotH (for now!), I propose the following movement restriction applicable only to German infantrymen:
that of not crossing the five (5) contiguous hexes marked with a (X) yellow cross. All are located near the sanatorium to form
a single continuous "minefield". Americans and tanks on both sides are unaffected. We will admit that they are well protected by
their armor, or that the GIs have had time to recognize / clear passages!
