AAR: ASL43 Into The Fray

Germans: Matt
Poles: Ralph

At the last North Texas game day Ralph had been reading up on the Cavalry rules and as he put it, wanted to kill some horses. Matt took him up on the challenge; they played ASL 43 Into the Fray. Matt took the attacking Germans, Ralph the Poles (and the horses). The Germans have to either punch through a line of Polish reservists or wreak wholesale slaughter on the the Poles to win. Most of the Germans attacked on their left flank with a "keep em honest" group moving down the right. The right flank was stopped dead in their tracks. Literally. Most KIA'd with low rolls by Ralph. The other flank pushed on, assisted by reinforcing armor. One tank was immobilized but it was still possible for Matt to exit what he needed. Then the cavalry arrived... The Germans opened up on them and it got ugly as Matt started rolling KIAs too. I missed the details being wrapped up in my own game but apparently he killed enough horses to win.
