Advanced Squad Leader After Action Report (AAR)

This video represents Decision at Elst campaign game date 1 (Sept 23, 1944 Afternoon), which is part 1 of 5. The British, led by Major Souper (represented by a 10-2 leader in game), kick off their efforts to secure Elst and the Arnhem-Nijmegen road from the German SS under the command of Major Faust.

The Germans have a lot of territory to cover and are spread quite thin, but they have two formidable Panthers stalking the battlefield in the rear. The British take a three pronged approach, north, center, and south … but end up making less progress than expected due to German resistance and challenging terrain (polder).
