Posting here some comments found online.
  • Interesting scenario that is quick to get into.
  • An aggressive play by the Germans can force an American surrender.
  • This is a fun and fast paced scenario that is a challenging puzzle for the US player. Good use of the artillery is critical for the US player.
  • The first few turns can be a nightmare for the Germans and then it's hell for the USA.
