From 3/9/11

Pointe Du Hoc Historical with an initial bombardment of the German defenses, determined by 5 random cards from each fate deck. These random shellings turned out to be well-targeted and took out two bunkers, with and two double hits killing two squads and a leader. Then the U.S. Rangers started waltzing up the cliff to finish the slaughter. There were only three U.S. casualties - two were deployed teams eliminated by overstacking caused by frequent German use of Rout cards. The third was a broken U.S. squad driven by Rout to the edge of the board that was killed by a sniper attack. All other casualties were German, inflicted to Surrender by the U.S. Rangers. One wonderful moment: a three-hex line of Rangers are targeted by a machine gun nest. The lead squad pops a 5 smoke to cover them all and then steps out of harm's way to join another fire group next turn.
