For several days the Germans rebuffed every American attempt to reach Bruyeres. Merlin Castle had still not fallen either. The 36th Division's command deployed both the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and one of its own regiments along with tank support in an effort to finish conquest of Bruyeres. A heavy rain was again falling making spotting difficult and air cover unavailable. A German counterattack struck the Nisei just as they jumped off for their attack struck the Nisei just as they jumped off for their attack, along with a heavy artillery barrage.
After six hour slugfest Captain Joseph Byrne's Company I managed to wrestle Merlin Castle from the defenders. In the main effort, the hard-charging 143rd Infantry Regiment managed to bully its way into the southern portions of Bruyeres by noon. They soon supported by Company L from the 442nd Regimental Combat Team who fought their way into the northern portion of town. A couple hours of mopping up and the town was declared secure. To their chagrin, the pronouncement was a bit premature as hidden German diehards resolutely held out until midnight. Overall, the operation was a success as the Americans had greatly compromised the German defenses in the area, secured Bruyeres and other key locations, and captured 134 prisoners while inflicting a similar number of casualties.
This scenario is an updated version of the "Bruyeres is a Cheese, Right?" scenario from the 1st edition of Go for Broke.
The American FLM unit seems to be a hold over from the 1st edition. U.S Army FLM units may be found in Cassino'44, Saipan'44, and Nihon Silk.
