‘Combat Mission’ Video Tutorial 6 – How to Fight

By Armchair General

How to Fight: In Lt. Col. (ret) Jeffrey Paulding’s sixth and final video on tactics, we go to Sicily, using Combat Mission: Fortress Italy, to give on tips on “How to Fight.” Using examples from two battles in a river valley, this video focuses on key concepts, as well as the details of how to fight at squad level. We go over the use of area fire, the assault command, the importance of understanding ballistics, understanding match ups, and the use of terrain. A review and primer all at the same time, this video rounds out the series, while introducing the latest version of Combat Mission.
