Thanks for the feedback!
With multiple objectives, it depends on their relative positions. Usually I'll go for a left or right hook, using artillery smoke to protect the open flank and a small holding force to watch out for counter attacks or mobile forces that I haven't previously spotted. Concentration of forces is very important to gain local superiority.
I tend to save my artillery for smoke barrages and attacks of opportunity when you spot infantry in the open.
To defend against artillery is a bit more random. If I have an armoured platoon that has been stationery (or not moved far) for a turn or two, then my next order, wherever possible, will be a Rush. Their previous position will frequently get carpeted :) It is imprecise though and you will occasionally get caught with your trousers down! Infantry are less mobile and more fragile, so I try to keep them moving or in hard cover. This is not always possible so you have to accept that occasionally you'll get hammered.

Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
