The turn opens with a registered stonk by a nebelworther battery which damages a Sherman, the Germans suffer a command blunder which force some of their units into the open and one Panther is destoryed by op. fire. Another Panther and a Sherman KO each other in exchange of fire across the river. However another Sherman manages to be hit five time and make all five saves, the Germans threaten to go home! The British FAO and FAC both target the same area and manage to kill some German infantry.

The Germans survive a break test. The British manage to build another bridge across the river, meanwhile a British mortar section storms into combat with the German recee unit destorying it with the support of some pioneers and a carrier! The advancing shermans in the middle concentrate on clearing the factory with the support of air and artillery but lose a section of infantry in the process.
