In an Eastern Front game, my small German force was suffering the “death of a thousand cuts” as it was whittled away by a large & continually advancing Soviet army. In spite of opportunities to be a bit aggressive, I simply absorbed losses & retreated bit by bit. By the designated last few turns I had only dribs & drabs deployed around a nebelwerfer battery. However, rather than accept a solid “Victory” result, my opponent decided he’d wipe me out for a “Glorious Victory”. Clearly his contempt for my timorous approach outweighed good sense. So to get enough troops up, he loaded them in trucks & raced for the nebelwerfers. I got in one salvo which thanks to the vagaries of the dice resulted in a barrage of accurate hits. His truck borne infantry suffered loads of hits; any not dead were pinned.

Game over & my Germans accepted a definite moral victory.
