The French HMG and 1st section drop two privates but miss the sniper...bad news.
The Chassuers drop another invader of France.
The grenadiers rush a ruin to get closer to the French while A section and the Jagers cower in the protection of the wood (a lot more successfully than the French).
"SNIPER"-the last world Lt. Valois hears before the fatal shot takes down the leader of the platoon. the command section loses its sgt and a pvt as well.
Things are worse on the left where a cpl, chasseur and two more privates fall for France. French marksmanship seems on target but hits are few...is something wrong with the ammunition?
