Okay, here is the report for Day 3:
Do or die time tomorrow. This scenario is proving to be very frustrating! I feel that I have put a decent effort into planning and execution, but have nothing to show for it. There may be several reasons for this:
- Too late I learned of how to manually implement resting so I could time early morning attacks.
- Too many directly controlled arty units. I think I should have left most if not all mortar units attached, and stuck to issuing bombard orders to the big guns.
- Being too conservative with arty supply - not bombarding with everything I have, as often as possible.
- Expecting too much of my paratrooper units at the start. I was hoping to quickly grab the Oberweywertz crossroads, but met stiff resistance. In hindsight, I should have fallen back, regrouped, and re-attacked with a greater force.
Well, maybe I can turn it around and eke out a draw or slight victory. I am close to taking the Dom, and might be able to separate the NE allied units from the rest of their army. Stay tuned for Day 4!
