Shots rang out from the German side of the field and they bellied down in this uncleared minefield. It was a German half track! A call ba...

Bazooka Teams under fire

The problem is this: I know that the core platoons for each side only fight on 3 of the battlefields and that secondary forces for both sides fight...
