4th September 1939

The Poles counter-attack

And the right flank

On the left flank a German armoured car is just visible behind the hedge.

Unfortunately every effort to upload more photographs to this site have failed. Suffice it to say that the Polish infantry moved into the centre of the town. In a fight between three 7TP tanks with 37mm guns and three SdKfz231 armoured cars with 20mm guns honours were even with two units lost on each side. The only meaningful result of the conflict could have been the systematic bombardment of every building by the German artillery. With the rules used there was no way that the infantry could take out armoured units, and with no communication rules (it being assumed that the commanders were omniscient) the game became unplayable.

For the campaign I reduced each side by 1 point, following the duel between the tanks and armoured cars, and left positions unchanged.

The Poles will have another chance tomorrow – or whenever this gets to be played…
