Heavy losses to the 7th Army (also known as the 2nd Panzer Army) had to withdraw from their positions in Holland, and retreat across the Rhine. They had been badly mauled, as had their infantry friends from 2 other Armies. Most could make it across but a few lacked the mobility to do so...
So I decided to mount a rescue mission, of sorts, that turned into a grand offensive. First Brussels was shelled and bombed, to reduce itīs resistance to my upcoming attack. Then the 1st Panzer Army (i forgot which army it is exactly) along with elements from the 6th Army stormed the city. The defenders hadnīt expected it, and it was a great victory. With Brussels taken, i then had to decide what to do. I had two choices, I could go for the jagular, and hit Antwerp, isolating a strong unit of tanks, located north of Antwerp, or I could try and face off this armoured army that had dared to stand in the way of my other panzers. I chose the latter.
Again I shelled and bombed the French and British, and they took heavy losses. I then attacked from across the Rhine, and with the stragglers that had been left behind by the fleeing Panzer Army, along with troops from the 6th Army in Brussels. The attack went well, and the hapless British and French found there was nowhere to flee, as Bombur had almost maxxed out the number of units in Antwerp, so they could not flee, or they would overstack. The result was devastating!
Then, to continue what has now become a tradition, German troops took Luxembourg, again. The city has long since been reduced to rubble, and the ruins serve as a grim reminder that here there has died many a young Frenchman and German.
The german submarines are playing tag with french and british destroyers in the atlantic. Mostly the submarines seem to be winning. Here is a map of the european battlefield as it looked at the end of the German turn...
