225 3/24/2017 3:10:00 PM Turn 6 robert Message The 8th feels a lot like the 7th. In both days, the net cumulative combat dice were way underwater for allies, plus mud – BUT that overstates the impact – the allies got just enough luck, at the right time, to make progress. The coin flips to clear isigny and brett were critical, and ditto for stuffing the counterattacks. The pips in those battles are way more important than uranium-tipped german shells flipping fresh paras – and you needed one more big bomb roll to devastate troarn. Cherry, cherry…lemon. Same story on 8th, with troarn and borg assaults carrying the day.

My plan for the 8th was to stretch the german line by taking isigny and brett. The brit bb whiff put the pulse order into a blender – I had planned for early day caen arty bombs, but had to discard that plan. The revised pulse order was clunky and not my best – in particular I should have focused on Omaha before flipping brett.

I used a quirky tactic with air. I didn’t need air for early day bombs, nor did I need a long day – but I was very afraid of mud. By waiting until late-ish to use air, it reduces the aggregate chance of mud from ~40% to ~30%. Of course, mitigating the chance didn’t prevent clouds. Oh well.
