I think the Americans need to set up a fire base on the two hills in front of the victory hill in order to allow for suppressing fire and keeping the Germans off balance. Of course, the German will probably have his mortar sited in on those hills.
I guess with a 'normal' Amis OB this could help. but, these are 2nd liners: 5 FP, 4 range, 6 moral, and they only have One measly MMG. the germ MTR's in upper level hills look right down on those other hills, albeit with some tricky LOS everywhere. not much time for the Amis to cross all that ground (inc. heaps of bocage) and get more CVP on the upper hill level than the germs. good ground for the defender to fallback through. I'd be interested in hearing more thoughts on this scenario
