The battle went really well and came down to the last turn when the French and African forces (under the command of AJ, Dave and Phil) finally overpowered the Rebels/Freedom Fighters (under the fanatical command of Warren and Paul). While the Allied forces definitely killed more Rebels and destroyed more equipment, the victory came at a pretty steep cost with one European soldier killed and another one wounded, a Cobra helicopter shutdown, an African vehicle destroyed and several African troopers killed and others wounded.
Here are some photos that I took during the game with commentary:

|The Cross Roads at the Center of the Table - Hey, is that motorcycle a combatant?|
|Yes, as a matter of fact - BOOM! Of course, with the next French/Government Troop Command Die the Motorcycle Died a not glorious death!|

|The last phase of the last turn. The French are in a good position and the Rebels are making one last attempt. Can they do it?|
