Standard German opening move.

159 12/16/2017 5:29:00 PM Turn 1 Germans Message I have to agree: a pretty brutal interdiction/invasion sequence.

Sword - Yes, a tie is a Stalemate. The lead unit goes D1 and everyone else is just spent (which they would have been regardless). But at least you got rid of the fortifications.

Omaha - CA to D1, spent 716/726 voluntarily retreats to [29].
158 12/16/2017 4:21:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message a tie - so does the single guy go D1 and rest spent
or do all units go spent also?

Overall a pretty crappy landing if you ask me.

128 12/15/2017 10:37:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message Your assessment of the game status is probably right. You have two major problems right now: Not clearing Omaha and not contesting Caen.

I think that's the worst situation I've seen on Omaha at this stage of the game. With the area maxed out you can't even enter it to assault. Your best bet would be to have the British clear [19], then regroup the disrupted guys out of Omaha overnight to make room for guys from the Approach Box to assault on the 9th. All that would take impulses to accomplish, cloudy weather impulses at that.

We can continue with the match or start something else if you want.

100 12/7/2017 11:26:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Hey, helping to knock off rust for both of us.

I was considering a few options on this attk.

One was to use the tank & arty - but leaving Sword
open to arty then attk on overcast was NOT a good idea.

I was also going to send one of the 455's into area between Juno and Sword but didn't think I could spare the integ bonus - and in fact I could not - but having space to move units between beaches is a bonus.

I feel like I'm doing 'okay' with decision making but the 'finer points' of 'how much to use or not use' and which items are PRIORITY vs HAVE TO BE DONE vs SHOULD REALLY BE DONE vs HELPFUL IF DONE - are still escaping me.
99 12/7/2017 10:42:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message And I screwed up with my reinforcements this turn. Usually, I put one or two of the small tanks from 12SS into Zone A so that I can slide them into Merville for some extra defense if needed. This time I put them all into Zone B.
98 12/7/2017 10:38:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message More comments.

"attempt to grab bridge
+3 +3 -1"

No, you get the +3 for the free area you're making the seizure attempt from (the now-cleared Sword). But you don't get any positive modifiers for the adjacent area unless it's vacant; contested status doesn't matter. Your could get negative modifiers for each fresh defender in the adjacent area (I didn't have any) and the -1 for the flooded boundary. So the seizure attempt went off at +2 (+3 free -1 flooded = +2), and you needed a 5 or 6 to capture the bridge. The roll of 4 was a NE.

Without control of the bridge, your assault into Merville was a Mandatory Assault and bridge modifiers applied. Had you seized the bridge, it would have been a Optional Assault with no modifiers. In this case the +3 modifier made my defense a 5 instead of 2. The 9-9 roll was just enough to kill the CA anyway.

"I should have fired the US air at Omaha directly....newbie mistake"

Not necessarily. If you air bombard a contested area, you risk a Mistaken Attack (17.31). If both DRs are the same -- it doesn't matter whether one is 5+2 and the other 4+3, just that the sums are the same -- then it's a Mistaken Attack. The Germans suffer APs normally, but the Allies also suffer one-half of their DR (rounded up) in APs. So a 7-7 DR would inflict 4 APs on the Allies, and the Germans get to chose the first target. If the DRs are different, then it's the same as an artillery bombardment.

That happened to Greenwood at a D-Day con. It was the first round on Friday night and the con had barely started. He hit St. Mere with his Air and rolled 12-12, Double Boxcars! His guys had to take 6 APs to the merriment of all.

"+ 1 flood (I think?)"

No, bridge modifiers count only during a Mandatory Assault. In this case you owned the bridge and the target area was already contested, so it was an optional assault. The reduced German DV didn't change the results for either attack, unfortunately for you.

Here's one tactic I like to use in the St. Mere situation like yours. If you'll have two inf of the 4th plus the arty fresh on the 7th (9 attack points) then regroup them if necessary back to Utah along with all three 101st guys. That gives you no worse than a 14-5 assault into St. Mere on the 7th. Depending on your disruptions, you may leave St. Mere vulnerable to a Magic Bridge seizure, but so what? If the Huns seize the bridge on their first impulse, then you use yours for the big attack from Utah. As long as you don't lose the assault by more than 4, St. Mere is yours. The Germans may hold the bridge, but it's a Mandatory Assault to re-enter the area, and you'll have a big DV.

We're on Impulse 3. The last two files you've sent were named Impulse 2.

If you come ashore on Omaha, you'll still face interdiction at 1. And only 4 units can land since you've already got 6 units on the beach.
