Historical background

The Battle of Loos was fought between September 25 and October 15, 1915. On September 27, the Germans launched a fierce counter attack in an attempt to regain control of “The Dump” and the Redoubt. Reinforced by various elements, the Germans succeeded in throwing back the men of the British Brigade, who were exhausted, having little food, water and sleep for 48 hours. Retaking “The Dump”, the Germans brought forward heavy machine guns, to support the attack against the Hohenzollern Redoubt trenches.

The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.

Glad to see the Germans attacking for a change, and no wire to pierce. An interesting scenario with the Dump blocking LOS in 1 Section. The Mortars firing over the Dump was thematic.

I think the Starting asset count is incorrect here.
British have 4 Infantry, 1 Bomber, 2 MG & 2 MTR.
Germans have 9 infantry, 2 Bamber, 3 MG & 1 MTR
