  1. According to the book ”Greek Army in the Middle East (1941-1945) El Alamein-Rimini-Aegean” published by Hellenic Army History Directorate, III Battalion of the 3rd Mountain Brigade which was operating at the left flank of the Brigade,attacked on 15th of September at 15:30 with the objective of capturing Casa Lechio settlement.Battalion was supported by 6 tanks and managed by 18:35 to clear Casa Lechio settlement.
    Commander of the III Battalion was Major Luterakis Andreas.

  2. Comments from my opponent Allied: Looks like I had a MUCH bigger force than you, maybe if you had one more platoon/tank it would be a bit more balanced? Either way, a very grueling battle which my poor Greeks won’t forget in a hurry…

    Also, I’m surprised it said your AA gun only caused 3 casualties – it virtually wiped out one of my platoons, and damaged another pretty badly too (plus I give it credit for killing one Sherman and crippling another, by forcing that platoon to rush up to deal with it before I’d cleared out your infantry)!

    I think the key was me having the better armour (numbers and quality). I was really surprised that your hull-down tank on the hill didn’t hit any of my Shermans, one or two knocked out then would have made things dicey.

    Comment from me:
    Yes I don’t think the balance of the scenario is right yet. I needed another platoon of infantry and two more A/ T guns, then I think it would have been closer. But it was still a fun game to play,

  3. Thanks for play testing the scenario! I’ll look at it for revision with your comments.
    Glad you Liked playing it!
