Really interesting that one.  I was thinking “bad, bad mistake” as soon as I started reading about the New Zealanders preparing a counter-attack…

One thing that did occur to me was that the Germans by deploying their mortars and machine guns early looked as if they were expecting contact but the rifle platoons didn’t.  I wonder if the NZ weapons platoon might have opened up a little too early (although I suppose that at least they got some good firing in before the German armour turned up!).  Combined with a NZ defence of the other strongpoints, the Germans might have been in for a very thin time…

All that said, it seems like the Stukas are always going to be a bit of a trump card in this campaign.
