The photos start with each section, and then pics of the teams that make up the section (or squad as we say in the US). British sections were made up of a Bren gun team plus a rifle team. Three sections make a platoon, including a HQ with a PIAT and 2" mortar team. Specialists will be featured in future posts.
Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy #74. The campaign is 4 linked battles representing the British 5 Platoon's spearhead for 3 Para’s advance on Arnhem. I ran the German training/replacement unit blocking the Para's advance. Thanks to some white hot dice and great generalship (tongue in cheek!), I beat Hugh's Para's quickly and soundly.
We reset and replayed the battle as the British must win to advance the campaign. In our rematch, I got a beat-down before I withdrew off the table. My force morale plunged as a result and the next campaign battle just got exponentially more difficult for the Germans. Ouch!
