Advanced Squad Leader scenario 3 The Czerniakow Bridgehead (AAR)

It’s September 22nd 1944, Warsaw.  The 1st Polish Army, fighting under Russian command and the Polish Home Army (the famous “Kampinos Battle Group“) defended the Czerniakow Bridgehead withdrawal against Kaminiski’s White Russians, fighting under German colors across the Vistula.

The “Germans” need to take more CVPs than the “Russians” and have enough on Board 8 to exert 20 unmodified FP at the end of 10 turns.

Thoughts

  • This is a good German management team, 7 leaders totaling -5 Leader mods.
  • The Poles have numerical superiority : 27 squads vs German’s 15 (balanced off by half the team having bad ELR). We have a force that will happily swap bodies in CC.
  • The 1st Polish Army need to recover quickly post “bombardment” and re-situate to interdict where the Germans decide to cross in force.
  • The Poles don’t have the firepower to engage the Germans inside buildings and have to seek shooting opportunities in Open Ground.

ASL AAR After Action Report

The Poles had been able to delay the Germans at the crossing enough to for the Kampinos battlegroup to resituate.  Once the Germans bring their machine guns into the buildings acrossing the river it will be much tougher for the Poles with their lower firepower and shorter range.  I would have to figure out how to take maximum advantage of our stealthiness, MOLs and sewer movement (ie, fight up close).

The Germans made an approach to the bridge on the left as well.  As a result I need to retain forces to the left of the board.  I have a squad, an LMG plus a -1 leader HIP’d at the G/F of the building where you see Defensive Fire going to the DM’d German stack (red dotted line).  Unfortunately they will never get to leash hell on the bulk of the German forces since we decided to end the game here.
