The First Game: The US forces had two waves of 50 men to cross the river and reach their first objective in the small hedgerow near the dike.

 

The US took heavy casualties as they crossed. The Germans were waiting.

 

The boats held ten men in this game. As they reached the shore many times only three men emerged.

The loses were high.
