Thanks.† No hurry.† It's not like I'm going anywhere either.† I'm at work too.
Regarding the Arnhem scenario in the 2D screenshot, my recollection is, playing as the German, crossing the bridge would cost so much in lost Strength Points that it was difficult to win the scenario that way.† Even if you neutralized the British on the riverfront, there were others waiting behind the riverfront waiting to ambush you.† Also, once you crossed the river, unless you were lucky, you were forced into a†park (orchard), and the British, fighting from city hexes, had a tremendous advantage.† On the other hand, if you just duked it out over the river, the Germans had superior firepower and could win a minor victory.
While difficult, it is possible to win as the Germans. It boils down to the order of firing of your units, knowing when to assault across the river, and having enough across to secure the position.
