Battle of Jackson Heights (A Combatpainter saga)

A WW2 action.  US Airborne supported by armor attacking through hedgerows into Grench town defended by Germans.  28mm scale.  Used Disposable Heroes rules with some home grown modifications.

I had these Force on Force Fog of War cards I wanted to make use of so we added them to the game, modifying them to match the WW2 setting and DH rules.
They turned out to be a better deal for the Americans, as they got an extra tank show up as reinforcement and the Germans had their Panther bug out halfway through the game.  The Americans had to make their way into the edge of the town defenses by turn 6 which they just barely managed to do but they had destroyed most of the German force in the process.
