The 352nd Volksgrenadier Division's right wing crossed the Our River at the village of Roth, west of the town of Fuhren; held by Company E, 100th Infantry Regiment. The Americans' observation of the German crossing site made them an obstacle to be eliminated.
The German 915th Regiment crossed the Our near Bettel and moved against Longsdorf. Company E held Fuhren against a series of uncoordinated attacks as the bulk of the German infantry bypassed the town. In the afternoon the 109th Regimental reserve was committed to relieve the now-surrounded company, but was only able to reach the outskirts of the town on Longsdorf (Board 10) before nightfall.

|4 Errata Items|
Two 105mms (ID#s 1204, 1205) have "16-31" fire values in black (direct fire), when they should be in white (indirect fire).
(Shad on 2010 Dec 15)
The reduced direct fire value of the Heer HMG became 5-5 starting with Fall of France.
(plloyd1010 on 2015 Jul 31)
The morale and combat modifiers of German Sergeant #1614 should be "0", not "8".
(Shad on 2010 Dec 15)
The movement allowance on the counters in Airborne is misprinted. It should be "3."

|Battle of the Bulge Scenario 16|
The Germans begin crossing the river with what is an overwhelming force ready to overrun the American town and then exit the south edge of the irregularly shaped map. Once again they have seemingly infinite time to do this, so they gather up strength before moving on the town and simply overwhelm it with bodies and artillery support. The only real chance America has is to kill off enough German GREN units to prevent their VC, but they only caused 2 step losses before succumbing. The Germans then exited the map before any sides reinforcements arrived. It seems very lopsided like most Scenarios in BoB if the attacking Germans are patient.
