The situation at the end of turn 2 the Germans muster a solid counter attack!
Back in Turn 1 we see a reprise of my first play of TME, I landed an all US force in the Normandy beaches excluding OMAHA. I did not do a good job with Paras. Losses were high, but we took Caen turn 1 regardless.
Turn 1, I also went South to try and keep some forces down there….yikes booted out of Southern France! Losing 2 steps in process.
In turn 2 I conducted a clear beach invasion with the Brits @ the historical Omaha. Without air support the Allies lacked the ability to do much, so the attacks that were critical were chosen carefully keeping 1 air in reserve for the British paras. In hindsight keeping it for 2nd Armoured would have been smarter.
I was away from the screen while my opponent mustered forces. He popped a 4:1 attack! Sneaky bugger.
The counter attack in Turn 2 knocked off the 2nd Armoured and 1st Para! I was hoping to encircle but to no avail. 8 steps lost in 2 turns.
Turn three I hope to gear up a solid offense and go for Paris to press home the advantage in units. I need a port!! Cherbourg we rolled a 6…..not good. I may feint to Paris and try Le Havre?
Will the Germans hold or fall back?
