GenCon Battle Report: Bitter Cold Bastogne
German tanks advance towards Bastogne.
In turn three, a well-placed artillery barrage caught a large group of panzer grenadiers in the open, with devastating results. A number of men were killed, and the rest were suppressed. The German tanks on the right flank completed an about-face and charged towards the weakened right flank of the 3rd Army. Withering fire resulted in more losses, with several half-tracks destroyed.
