German centre holds on

German centre holds on

Despite some losses in the German centre, the French advance continues to be held up. Much to the joy of the French commander, however, the German machine gun company has finally been suppressed by the French artillery. Both French artillery regiments had joined the fight, bringing down salvoes that were defeated by a series of low dice rolls. Perhaps la chance is about to turn…

The German commander has the same view. His reserve battalion and the 14th Division reinforcements are beginning to form a second defensive line.
