The Battle of Bitburg

(October 30th - Oberkommando das Heer)
(OKH) Major Svedala deployed at the Bitburg-Vivande depot at 18:48 carrying his trusted kar 98 rifle. In order to defend Bitburg he joined the defense of the depots with infantrymen like Sab06 and then moved out of town with panzers in order to get a perimiter to deny the french and british forces to deploy mobile spawns close to town. Svedala shot one british rifleman and then moved towards the west forward base where he managed to damage one light-machinegunner one QF 6 pounder, two QF 2 pounders, five Bofors 40mm AA gun, one Bedford and one Morris gun tractor, while scouting for the panzers.

Scharfschutze reports in

(October 14th - Oberkommando Das Heer)
(OKH) The call for infantry to Spontin came just as Major Svedala wrapped up in Bergen Op Zoom, a short but hard fight won by Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine showing up in force to support the troops on the ground. Several deployed at Spontin to flush out enemy forces entrenched in the Armybase as well as the depots. Sappers cleared one depot by placing charges on it and then the odd enemy infantry tried to infiltrate the town and that called for Scharfschutzes (Snipers) who kept the killing then enemy infantry who used the same paths in to the town over and over again. The operation was a success and the enemy High Command was unable to escalate the attack with an attack objective.

Newsreel: October 13th

(October 13th - Oberkommando der Wehrmacht)
(OKW) Sedan was one of the most intense battles for weeks. It had lots and lots of infantry with mortars raining fire on eachoter. The Allies held the west side of the river for a while during which time invidual mortarmen sent hundreds of mortarrounds with smoke to cover the advancing panzers and infantry and high-explosive to keep the enemy from holding their positions. One bridge was up and both sides thought they could make a succesful attack on the other side and so the bridge stayed unharmed and hundreds died crossing it. At the end of the day 12. Armee supported by Luftwaffe and detachments from 6. Armee managed to take and secure the town of Sedan. Althou not qualified as an epic battle the intensity of it will be carried in many soldiers minds for weeks to come, this is what world war II online is about.

The detachment were quick to repell the attackars and gain control over the mountain south and hill to the north were they could continue to operate and dis-courage and more french aggressions in the area.

Heavy fighting over Monchen-Gladbach

(October 8th - Oberkommando der Wehrmacht)
(OKW) A massive assault by Wehrmacht was made earlier today to try and brake-out of the temporarily stalemate on German soil and secure the factories of Monchen-Gladbach. When Axis News arrived at the scene, Wehrmacht held half of the city concentrated on the south side and the Airfield kept switching ownership while skirmishes took place on the german countryside. The FB to Kaarst was subject to heavy attacks and once lost regained in no time only to find itself under attack again. Stukas kept bombarding the northern Armybase held by french troops while Jagdfliegers pursued the Royal Airforce over the razed city. The war is not over and Wehrmacht calls on all able soldaten to join the ranks of the frontline troops in order to push back the aggressors.

Speak like an australian night

(September 29th - Oberkommando das Heer)
(OKH) Axis News can report that Oberfeldwebel Slob, 3rd Panzergruppe tried to invent a new Teamspek event but to no avail. Oberfeldwebel Slob explains: " On ts last night i announced that it was Speak like an australian night. if you spoke on ts last night, you had to use an australian accent. Kommandeur Whacko was having none of that and i think he should be banned from the event as a result. The only other person beside myself who participated was Deeks. i think he should be promoted as he does a pretty good australian accent, but i have to admit it's not as good as mine."
