While the other Allied troops all over the region launched an assault against Boche's positions all over the Somme river, the Germans launched their own assault against our division entrenchments in Mametz Woods, near Bazentin.
This scenario is mostly artillery scenario: The artillery plays an important role in the mission, especially in destroyed concetrated masses of enemy units.
Planes are also useful- they are good for shooting down enemy planes, destroying ground units and revealing the enemy positions to friendly artillery.
Machine guns are also overpowered, and flamethrowers too.
Your mission is to repel the Boche's assault until you will get tanks- Mark I Light Tanks- armoured vehicles with large enough range to act like small artillery, but more mobile than the heavy guns, and able to move and capture enemy trenches.
and if someone could'nt understand why did I call the German riflemen "Bill's Boche Soldiers" - the reason is that the German Emperor, Wilhelm II, was often nicknamed by the British "Kaiser Bill".
Boche is a term used widely in World War I, often collectively ("the Boche" meaning "the Germans").
'Tommy soldiers' refers to 'Tommy Atkins' - a term for a common soldier in the British Army.
Spandau MG08 (the machine gun- based on the unique MG42) was the German Army's standard machine gun in World War I.
Vickers .303 - the British machine gun- is a name primarily used to refer to the water-cooled .303 inch (7.7 mm) machine gun produced by Vickers Limited, used widely by the British Army during WWI.

i just played that and my first thoughts are great beginning but a bit boring at the end. im not telling you to make it shorter but im saying it needs more action like maybe sending every german unit at the end for a final frontier then when they lose like over a 3 quarters they all retreat instead of making them just stand their get shelled buy bombs or shot down by biplanes.
but over all it was great.
sweat as dude. =)
