    We played this 6mm I Aint Been Shot Mum game back in December and it gave me a chance to get my Commandos on the table for the first time. This scenario came from the Forgotten Battles from France to Germany, January to April 1945 scenario book from Anschluss Publ. The gist of the game is that the defending Germans are expecting the British to come from the west and have placed their defenses accordingly. However the Commandos have worked all the way round to the east and are launching their attack from that edge.
    Germans are defending with a company from a SS training battalion and have 4 20mm Flak guns in support. The Commandos start with 2 Troops and get additional units later including a troop of tanks.
    Made for an interesting all infantry game with a ton of Big Men/Leaders for the Commandos

    Great looking game, and quite bloody for the Commandos.  I love that not only was it designed so that one side couldn’t really win, it’s deployment was also shammed up.  Great stuff and a more true reflection of war than most.

    And the German player went along too. Lifes too for ordinary games.

    Thanks,
