The situation is critical in Sicily and the Allied lost a lot of ground. Still, reinforcement on their way and the German navy losing a key convoy, the front stalled.
In Palermo suburds, the British HQ had a special device to communicate orders between units that the Germans were not able to decipher. The High Command replaced Von Kleith the Vampire by Hermann Goret, the Head of Airborne forces (to be coming)

The landscape was changed from woods to city, and the board was 4x4 instead of a 6x4 therefore we played 4 turns only.
The first turn went bloody for the Germans, with 1 werewolf slained, the HQ Skdfz 250 destroyed by 1 lucky mortar shot. The British HMG fleed back to the trench, while German moved to take position in the buildings. The remaining British units dug in.

The fourth turn was the last one. The Germans were too far from the trenches to really take the device in time and too pride in killing as many British as possible. While the British were seeing their number getting lower and more disorganized units. The trench were filled with grenades from the building but the British hold it with the remaining Temple being the only fighting unit at the end of turn 4 still in the trenches, true to their oath.
====== SUMMARY ======
While German were still very strong, they had lost key units and were too far from the HQ to effectively claim victory, while British reinforcement were getting closer.
