Feb. 8, 1945
Operation Veritable was undertaken to clear the German forces from the wooded area known as the Reichswald. The 2nd Canadian division's task was to clear the way for a supply route to support an advance made by the British on their right. The narrow nature of the terrain flanked by flooded fields on the left and a dominated ridge on the right made a head on assault through the woods into the inexperienced German 84th Infantry division necessary.

Another massacre party for the Germans.
Canadians didn't even managed to go through rough terrain or starting hills.

The map is really too narrow and German units (including MG/antitank/halftrack) inside forest + trench (defence 4) in OP fire are really too much for the Canadians.

Some bad rolls in both trying to pin german units and trying to apply artillery command cards... but that's it!

Here you can find the VLOG if you would like to replay the game.

I've had my fill of Hitler. These conferences called by the ringing of a bell are not to my liking. The bell is rung when people call their servants. And besides, what kind of conferences are these? For five hours I am forced to listen to a monologue which is quite fruitless and boring (To his son-in-law on June 10th, 1941)
