With my first positve experience with Somme 1918: Bloody Spring I wanted to go for the next scenario. This covers Unternehmen Michael from March 21st to April 1st 1918 (Turn 1 to 4) using the full starting forces with the basic game. With some spare time at hand I set up the game in a quiet corner of the house. Its an awesome sight to see all those German counters cramped on the eastern edge of the playing area.
Scenario 2 Operation Michael
In the southern sector this scenario is identical to Scenario 1 – v. Hutier Strikes. In the northern sector it adds – from north to south – the 17th and 2nd German Armies, both mainly opposing the British 3rd Army. The main German effort I choose to direkt at the border of the two British armies. Here Michael Süd in combination with Bruchmüller will force a breaking open of the British front line.
