The battle along the river line from Robertville to Trois Ponts has been very fluid. I have had some success and am threatening the capture of Trois Ponts today, but I have lost the bridgehead at Malmedy.

Further West, I was successful in the destruction of the two plus Regts of the 3rd Armd Div. I did not make much headway against the elements of 30th Inf and VII Corps.

Today, I would like to advance out out of Malmedy, capture Trois Ponts and continue the push towards Stoumont.

A couple of surprising observations in this sector – my troops in the area around Stavelot are supplied – not sure how. While the Americans (82nd AB) South of Trois Ponts are not getting supplies – which I think they should be.

This continues to be a fun sector.

It looks like there is a gap north of those units [leading to Spa] thru which supplies can flow [if linked to another gap somewhere on the map].

Because those units are surrounded by enemy zoc's and badlands, I think.

Steve,

It must be a very weird and long path for my units near Stavelot - they are not getting much supply though. As for the 82 AB, I think you are correct, my zoc's and the badlands will be preventing resupply.

Thanks for the input.

Have a good day,

The situation on my southern flank. I know that I have units farther South, but they have not be activated yet. The Americans are trying to get me to activate them by launching attacks East of Luxembourg. The attacks have not caused me enough issues to trigger activation. In fact, I like that the 4th (US) Armd is engaging in that sector.

The battles around Malmedy continue to be fierce. Where possible I will rest units today, I have some units that really need a break.

Starting in the SW corner, I will use 9 Pz to freeze 3rd Armd. This US division has lost two regiments, but is still a force. I like it where it is, so I can let 9 Pz take a break while holding the units in place.

H Goring Division is going to head North towards Combain au Pont. From there, they can head towards Aywaille, which will cut the supply lines to all the Americans South of the Ambleve R.

9 Pz and 2 SS will rest for the most part. 12 SS will swing West of 9 Pz and then follow H Goring North.

15 Pz Gren will continue to push North, taking out some more of the 82nd.

130 Pz lehr will try to grab Trois Ponts. If I can achieve that, I will start swinging 116 Pz towards Spa.

Elements of 3 Pz Gren, 2 Pz and 116 Pz will try to push the Americans back around Malmedy.

Although I would love to hit the 101st hard again, this morning is going to be a rest day – for the most part.

I will tweak the defence in front of Bastogne, but otherwise entrench and rest a little.

Along the Sure R, I will continue to dig in and rest. It is time to bring back the units South of the River.

In the East, 5 and 7 FJD will dig in some more. The lead elements of an American division is heading North on the South edge of the map. I need to be ready for their arrival.
