From: Genoa, Republic of Genoa (occupied by Italy)
When I played the German side, I already knew the Allied OOB, so my first thought was to avoid being slaughtered by Shermans.
In the north-west sector, I took some fire, then retreated my units inside the Abbey; in the south, I thought the 88mm could give me some chance to hold the trenches longer.
Much to my surprise, I only saw two Churchills, which were promptly killed by the 88mm, then I didn't see any Allied AFV for the rest of the game . I sometimes heard the AFV moving, but they never showed up.
In the south, the British infantry was wiped out and never reached the level 1 hexes. Even though the deadly AI OBA killed the 88, the PzIV and most of the infantry, at the end of the game the British only had a squad and a HS in Good Order (and still in the plain below the Abbey).
On turns #9 and #10 some British squads finally appeared in the north-west, but were all wiped out by point-blank fire.
Chasing Germans in the moonlight is no mean sport
