6 The Ardennes Offensive ltbv (ARDENNE3 - EASY) I would say: historically correct EASY. The real challenge is not the opponent's resistance, but the terrain. And you have to be careful not to kill all enemies before all flags have been collected - it would be a shame to lose prestige. The AD has no...
