|As the members of the 75th began to log in on November 29th, 2007, we coalesced around the Buzancy - Stenay FB. Intelligence reports indicated that the 69th, who the Allies jokingly refer to as the "Pirates" were guarding Stenay.
With the knowledge that an Axis unit was operating in the area, we set up a defense around the Buzancy - Steenay FB. It soon became apparent however that the Axis had no stomach for a fight, so the 75th brought the fight right to their door step at Stenay.
The fighting in town was fierce. The Axis forces had nowhere to hide as their members were slaughtered. The Allied spawnable in town was taken, lost, and then retaken. The Axis air forces blew the Buzancy - Stenay bridge in an effort to halt the attack. Even with the bridge down, the 75th was undeterred. Kew and Eurogeek led the 75th across the wateer with the prowess of marathon swimmers The spawnable was retaken and with it the battle was back in town.
While Eurogeek and Kew were forged their way across the river, Nero316 and Meatus approached town from the north. With the whirlwind battle going on around them, they made their way to the ultimate goal, the AB bunker radio. Meatus was hit, which left Nero316 alone, but that didn't stop him in the least. Sneaking past numerous enemy armor and infantry units, Nero316 managed to sneak into the enemy AB and get to the table. Well done Nero316!
Within a matter of minutes, Stenay was under complete Allied control.
The Axis were too scared to attack our FB, but the 75th didn't give them a choice when we attacked and took their town!
Well done to the 75th that participated in the attack:
coldwind, nero316, eurogeek, kew, meatus, danweed, poton
Nice job 75th, way to boot the 69th out of Stenay!
