I can't see a reason why as the Allied player I should attack Cherbourg given the automatic victory conditions. I know the importance of Cherbourg in history, but unless you decide to ignore the automatic victory rules, I don't see it.

Each Cherbourg city hex counts for 2VP in final scoring, which can be substantial.

In my experience, auto-victory is far easier for the Germans to achieve than the Allies; Caen can be a very tough nut for the Brits to crack with a couple of SS divisions in there.
