Germans entered in waves from both roads...recon elements 1st.
Made worse by a lucky PIAT shot.
The flank attack has some success, but the 2in mortar rips one squad to pieces.
The front line elements have pulled back to avoid the PV IV and Stug fire. British armor reinforcements are on the way.
Germans start to pull back as the British tanks arrive.
The PV IV gets a mobility hit for 1st blood...
But the return fire is more effective.
