The British started by giving partial air superiority to the Soviets! Turn one saw the British artillery targeting the empty woods South of the town. The British then moved on and advanced towards the Soviets, deploying all the force to face the Soviet right flank, North of the town. The Soviets responded by firing on the British recee units, revealing their positions.
Turn two saw the Brits continue to advance and target the units that had revealed themselves in the previous turn. The remaining recce units located a number of unmarked minefields in a line, linking the North and South of the table.

Turn four saw the Brits continue to engage the infantry in the woods and start to engage the Soviets who had managed to filter into the town. the mine clearing unit cleared the first string of mines. The Soviets continued to filter more units into the town but found themselves pinned in place by six challengers on the Brit right flank. The Soviet infantry in the centre right woods also found themselves pinned in place, not wanting to risk moving North, exposing their flanks to the Brit tanks.

Turn six saw the Brits streaming into the Soviet rear area unopposed. It was at this point Danny suggested we call it a day as the Brits now had six turns to exit the table! A major British victory.
