Things appear relatively peaceful at the rural HQ of the Departmental Milice, with only a solitary sentry on duty. The local Resistance have decided that the ultra collabos need to be taught a serious lesson, that the HQ needs to be destroyed, and the local Milice unit wiped out.
But the Miliciens have been tipped off, and have laid an ambush on what they hope will be the main axis of attack on the south-western road into the town.
Meanwhile, on the eastern approaches the Resistance machine gun team move up to cover the main road to prevent reinforcements for the Milice turning up.
While 'Felix' (Big Man status II) moves his men up, with 'Petit Jo' (Big Man status II) and his boys in the distance, moving to attack the HQ from the rear.
And Alain Draylon (Big Man status II), with the local Resistance supremo, 'Hairy Pierre' (Big Man status III), head, unknown to them, into the Milice ambush...
