Do the Germans really move first? With a forward "defense", the SS jump, VB freeze, and mostly destroy the Canadians on Turn 1 before they can even unpack their DM equipment. The other option is having the Canadians set up along the northern edge followed by moving through HMG fire lanes through all the fields with little time to even reach the VC village. seems like an impossible task so wondering how you made it work.

Yes, the Canadians move Sets Up first; and if the Germans want to attack - pretty ballsy tactic.

The Germans were well hidden in the rubble of the village and the advancing Canadians walked into the German kill zone - actually stumbling into a hidden minefield, which triggered the Germans to open fire.

In playtesting AARs reported a hard fight coming down to the last few turns; prying 8 Morale troops from stone buildings was very difficult.

One says the Germans move first; the other says the Canadians move first. Can they both be right?

The card says Germans move first but George says the Canadians move first which makes more sense.

Well my opponent did attack with the SS and they destroy the Canadians on Turn 1.
