As suggested, by Capn Darwin, I've been playing "A Time to Dance" multiple times to get so I at least get a draw most of the time. I'm managing to do way better at protecting my force and even managed a 44% rating with 58% of my force remaining (while almost wiping out the Red forces except the arty units). My one frustration at the start of the scenario is having to order the three recon units to new bridge sites after the orignial bridges are blow from the initial orders. Several times the recon units are destroyed or at least made to abort their new orders because of enemy units attacking them.
I realize that it is probably hard to do but is there a way to have an order in a unit's cue for a move command after a blow bridge command? In other words, at the start of the scenario, a unit will be given two commands: 1) blow bridge XXXX and when that is complete, 2} the unit is given a move to command to Hex XXXX. I would envision that this would be the only time, and probably the only situation, that this kind of double command would occur in a game.
This whole idea comes from, at least in the "Dance" scenario, the 11th ACR knowing the area like the back of their hand. They would have known exactly which bridges needed blowing and, although not positively, which bridges should be blown first and which could have been blown a litte later. The idea that the recon (and engineers) would set around for a ½-hour waiting to be told to go to the next bridge and blow it is a little hard to take. That, somehow, doesn't sound like the elite troops they were nor the type of planning those troops would have done. (I've got a story about the 11th ACR but that can wait for later.)
As a side note, my combat engineer battalion in Darmstadt, besides the four line companies, had an ADM company (Atomic Demolition Company) attached to it. Talk about security around the barracks they occupied. We were told to not even look at that barracks let alone talk about it. I remember being told (by his driver) about our company CO traveling around looking at potential demolition sites for delaying, etc. any attacking force. Yeah, pretty serious stuff.
