Yes, looking back, the Germans were very strong in this one, and Allies had a very hard row to hoe to even claw a significant loss in this go.
My worthy opponent Leonidas has now a pending challenge on the server, in Arrancourt as German, but that map is surely an Allied victory.
At least I think so, perhaps Leonidas has a special strategy up his sleeve. He is a worthy opponent.
Again, looking back on this one, key to Allies is keeping the Brits on the board ... and I saw Leonidas trying very hard to take them off.
Luckily, I was able to keep Dunkirk in hand, had that not been so, Paris would have fallen.
Some thoughts on scenario design: Belgians and Brits kept appearing for me in South France, that was surprising but did not have much impact on defense of S. France. Key for me was defending Paris, and keeping the railroad open to Chartres was key also for me.
It was a fun game, a good "beer & pretzel" scene.
PPPS: Also, in the scenario ending, mentions Operation Sea Lion (invasion of England proper)
I think it would be interesting to take on that scene in TOAW, to follow up this.
Will post a challenge for that, taking England, as soon as my short Moscow is done against Sandy.
We are on turn 55 or so in that one, almost done, w/ a Soviet OV there ... maybe I do better in Sea Lion next.
Okay, well, have a great gaming day!
