FALL BACK TO THE BRIDGE. WW2 action shots.



In my last post I set up the table to show you the engineers and obstacles I had been working on. The table layout was done ready for the Chain of Command game I will be playing when my mate comes around in a couple of weeks time. The scenario from the book is 'ATTACK ON AN OBJECTIVE'. The game is played long ways down the table and the objective ( a bridge in this case) is set up in the final quarter furthest from the attacker.
 
The minefields, barbed wire and tank traps in the above picture are just for show and wont be on the table on the day unless the defender chooses them from the lists with his allotted points.

The pictures that follow are obviously not of the game but just to show you the layout of the table and the engineers in action (and because I like to take lots of pictures of what I have been working on).

























 












 
 
 Dave Green, if your reading this, you now know the layout for our game.
 
Cheers,
 
Pat.
