Once my team crosses the open danger area, I order a dismount. We all get out and form up for movement.
As we move closer to the enemy town we get ambushed. They may not have had time to cross Death Valley, but they sure had time to take up nice fire positions within their town.
The battle only lasts about 5 minutes or so, but at the end my complete team including me, the fearless leader, lay dead on the town border.
