Excellent. If the Allies take Rome on the next turn, they will have taken it on the historical date!
If they don't, then you are doing even better than historically!

As historically, allies land in normandy and take Roma this turn.

The PoD seem to be in the strategy of the allied armies. Brtish troops attack east, and US troops are on the west flank.

Due to the situation ( increased allied shock to 120, presence of 2 strong fleets on the west flank, allied air superiority, lack of mobile units in the area), Axis is not able to counter attack.

So, let's marshall and entrench.

All mobile units on the west front are converging to Normandy.

The remaining Jagd Geschwadern in Germany have been sent in the suburb of Paris in order to increase allied air losses.

The turn ends here.

Turn 9






The allied main objective seems to be Cherbourg. Jedi367 move his fleets to support the offensive in the cotentin.

Most of his armored troops are facing west.

On the eastern part of the front, US troops are holding the front line with 8 entrenched divisions (5 infantry, 2 airborne and only 1 armored).

There's a good opportunity for me to reconquest the landing beaches.

red arrows represent the axis of the offensive. The yellow circle is pointing the Mulberry.

First objective, take Caen.

Once it will be mine, I will attack north and south of it to drive back allies.

It will also permit me to reach the coast because American front line has no depth.

40 per cent of the turn have passed.

I succeeded in reaching the beaches.

In the yellow circle, 3 1/3 infantry divisions (2nd, 4th, 29th & a regiment of the 90th), 2 FA groups, 2 Corps HQ (V & VII) and the 1st army are trapped.

To accomplish this, I've used a late unit (12ss Pz Div) to occupy an hex south of the circle.

Units are late this turn and can't attack this hex.

It's time to attack south of Caen.

50 per cent of the turn:

My attack succeeded but germans didn't occupy the hex. In fact, it's another good opportunity to increase US losses.

The 2 divisions which were defending this hex have been split in three last round. Now the hex behind the 2nd US armored division is full.

If only 1 unit retreat on the unoccupied hex at the end of this phase, it could be destroyed next.

In the coastal area, the destruction of the pocket begins.

80 per cent of the turn :

In the pocket, Only two units remain : 4Inf Division and VIIth Corps. I lost the 1/716 Inf Div during the reduction.

The attack south succeeded. The US divisions are now trapped and can't retreat.

As it's the last round, units are attacking ignoring losses. The other units are entrenching.

The 2 attacks succeeded.




In those battles, germans win for four reasons :

- No naval Support for the allies
- No Air Support for the allies
- Lack of armored vehicles for the allies
- I red Curtis Lemay's posts.

Maybe he'll be the first peacemaker with a pacemaker (sorry, I ate a clown at lunch).
