Looks daunting from the British perspective but shear numbers help.

Tough scenario for the Huns. So many different types of Victory Medals available to the British. Without Recon cards, the Germans have no answer to the British Medal haul.

British won 7-2
Quite unfair lose for the German, because British side ended up with 4 units with a single figure/miniature (would have been easy points for the enemy).
Lucky "no mans land" roll creating a lot of shell craters on the country terrains.
Good start for the British with a run/rush to the enemy MachineGun in the middle of the field.
Intense battle even on the left forest.
Last 2 easy point for the British were both Temporary VP for capturing enemy trench and mine crater.

I saw them tie a soldier to a cartwheel with his arms outstretched as a punishment. I also knew of men who did themselves in. British soldiers weary of sitting in the trenches who cut their throats during leave. If order hadn't been maintained, they would have deserted. They were coerced. When you're in the army, you can't just do whatever you want. ~~~ Gaston Boudry, in the Belgian book 'Van den Grooten Oorlog' ~~~
