Initially we excluded semifinals, but we are in for the pleasure of playing, so I'll say why not? At the moment, I think I can bestow upon myself the title of "Best incarnation of a WWI general", thanks to my 105 figures lost.
There is not much to say: British forces bravely attacked the German lines, but were welcomed by a devastating cross-fire (read a Butt & Bayonet, two Return fire and one Surprise Ambush played in a very quick sequence). Without being able to take any terrain where to get in cover, British infantries were inevitably hit repeatedly by the German rifles and bombers.
