With the Russians choosing not to stand and fight the only option is to push on. I’d read a comment somewhere about the Germans needing to make 3 hexes a turn to leave them time for the assault on the village. If the retreat continued at this pace I should be able to keep on schedule.
After breaking the MMG trying to rake the hedge line the advance continued in the woods with the HS scouts probing the concealed Russians. Finding nothing real in Q6 but running into an ambush in the north, breaking and falling back in dissaray.
The advance continued and feeling confident that the southern woods were lightly held the scouting HS advanced too far, falling prey to elite Russians and dying amongst the trees.
