Despite heavy action securing Bruyeres the previous night, the Nisei were ordered to keep the pressure on and advance eastward at dawn. First stop, Hill D, one of the leftover objectives from yesterday's to-do list. though the rain had finally subsided, the clouds had not parted, hanging sullen over the battlefield and preventing any of the planned air support once again.
Hill D, including the sleepy village of Avison, was secured by noon. The Nisei pushed further eastward eventually bumping up against well entrenched Germans along the railroad embankment at Bois de Borement. While struggling to overcome the obstacle they became embroiled in a vicious firefight with the 198th Fusilier Regiment, stopping all forward progress. As the official records contain no mention of a 19th Fusilier Battalion, but combat reports do, it was probably the reconstituted remains of the 4th/198th Security Regiment which had recently been absorbed by the 16th Volksgrenadier Division. In all, it had been a rough week so far for the Nisei.
This scenario is an updated version of the "What? Another Hill?" scenario from the 1st edition of Go for Broke.

The movement allowance on the counters in Airborne is misprinted. It should be "3."

One Wespe (ID# 1201) should have an armor value of 1 on the front and back of the counter.
