November > Thanksgiving > Turkey
The Triple Entente, or Allied Powers, declared war on the Ottoman Empire on November 4, 1914. What have you done, Enver Pasha ?
Time for testing the WARG rules with World War 1 paper armies (courtesy of Junior General.org), but, not on the Eastern front. Instead, it's the Western front with the "Harlem Hellfighters" (369th Infantry regiment) versus the Germans. Objective: repair a damaged "Water Tank" during a lull in Artillery fire.
The "Harlem Hellfighters"
The Germans take some advanced shell holes for cover
The battle is joined
The Germans suffer losses on their right flank, while US engineers trying to start the tank are eliminated
The Hellfighters attempt a Sergeant Alvin York maneuver to outflank the Germans
But, the Germans push them back
The Hellfighters are taking heavy casualties
The battle centers on the disabled tank, as repairs begin
While we were experimenting with the WARG rules, there is another simple & inexpensive set of WWI rules, available as a PDF, named "Trench Hammer" .
With further credits to director Howard Hawks's movie "Sergeant York", starring Gary Cooper and Walter Brennan.
