The right flank is also held up by an engagement that appears to be increasing in intensity with every metre of advance. The German column has not yet crested the ridge from which the scenario objective - Le Rocher - would be visible.
001. & 002. American rifle and bazooka teams are dug-in in the forest behind the bocage. They have already KIA'd the commander of the SPW which now retires and moves around the right to bring fire on the Americans from behind the bocage instead of through it. (Note: In CMBN tall bocage is extremely good protection against small arms and direct HE)
003. - 005. The SPW has moved forward and Grenadiers also move into the farm field behind the bocage in an attempt to infiltrate into the woods but are ambushed by another American section dug-in.
006. & 007. As the Grenadiers move deeper into the woods they encounter more dug-in Americans suggesting that this group, like the main column, has also run into an American strongpoint.
008. The SPW moves further right to clear out the last of the Americans dug-in overlooking the farm field.
009. While all this has been happening, the German column has been coming under fire from the woods overlooking the ploughed field to the left of the road. Another platoon is rushed forward and dismounts to engage the Americans to their left.
