Interesting AAR.
Looks like bad luck for the US due to the dice.

A bad end to a bad day for the US.
Try as one might,
some days it does not pay for our toy soldiers to take the field.

The soldiers fought hard.
I think it was their leadership that let them down!

Great AAR! Advancing piecemeal in Chain of Command is an easy yet deadly trap to fall in to. All too often in my case once my original plan falls apart I react one of two ways....all out attack as if (in campaign terms) the lives of my little lead and plastic dudes doesn't matter....or I fold and try and extricate what I can?
Now listen to me you benighted muckers. We're going to teach you soldiering. The world's noblest profession. When we're done with you, you'll be able to slaughter your enemies like civilized men.
