Blue forces had laid minefields covered by a pillbox located next to the village.
While Red's left flank continue to press forward their casualties were starting to rise.
Blue's reserves arrive just as it appears the Red flanking force was about to breakthrough.
Blue reserves bolster the defence and attempt to stem Red's armoured advance with a counter attack.
Red air support assisted in the elimination of Blue's mobile artillery while Red's armour engages with Blue's counter attack.
As night closes in Red forces have full control of the village and have control of the woods. A victory for Red just before time runs out.
The game was in the balance until the final three moves when an effective airstrike and artillery bombardment by Red eliminated the treat of a counter attack by Blue.
