Advanced Squad Leader AAR: Rude Mood (AP79)

Download the VASL .vlog playthrough.

Here’s the historical situation:

Date: May 18, 1944
Location: Esperia, Italy
Attacker: Free French (Groupement Linares, Chasseurs d’ Afrique)
Defender: German (Panzergrenadier-Division 90)

The Allied efforts to breach the German fortified defenses known as the Hitler Line were moving slowly forward. General Juin, commanding the Free French forces in Italy, had a plan to outflank the Germans through the Esperia defile and on to Mt. Onto. The initial French assault was forcefully repulsed by anti-tank ambushes and determined defenders manning positions among the rock-strewn approaches to Esperia. General Monsabert was not deterred, however, and ordered an all-out combined-arms assault, with a battalion of African infantry attacking the town over the hills and an armored force pushing up the road.

It’s very possible this is the shortest scenario Scott and I have ever played. Potential players … study those victory conditions carefully!
