2nd Ranger Battalion in Belgium 1 - Night Interrogation

As my first posting I decided to write about my current SASL campaign. It is a GSASL campaign where I am commanding Task Force HOL in the 2nd Ranger Battalion. As I progress I will post my reports as a regular item in this blog. I hope you will find it interesting.

We have just left Brittany after smashing the Germans and find ourselves in Belgium and the Ardennes Forest. Our first mission is to move along the German lines and try to determine the number and identity of the German units in front of us. We are to set out on a Patrol in the night and try to capture and interrogate German units. The mission played is (8) Patrol with some changes like night and interrogation rules.

AAR: At 0200 we went on a Patrol towards the German lines. When we turned around a corner of a road leading towards the German lines we encountered a German Patrol. We moved into the woods and tried to set up some traps in the wooded area on the hills as we knew there were some panzer's around. A few Germans went right into our trap and we managed to capture them. They turned out to belong to the 7th Army and the 347th Infantry division. Fierce fighting are taking place at the moment as we are trying to stop counter attacks.

To be continued .....
