217 4/24/2018 11:30:00 AM Turn 3 Germans Message I'm tempted to leave the tank there to make it harder for you to retake the beach, but I'm afraid it would just die for no real purpose. So the tank moves back to Caen.
216 4/24/2018 11:28:00 AM Turn 3 Germans Message The Sword Supply depot is unavailable until the turn *after* you retake the beach. So if you retake Sword this turn, you can't use its Supply until the 10th.

and Yes Agree...
121 4/1/2018 10:56:00 AM Turn 2 Germans Message I believe you miscalculated the odds in your Merville attack.

Your assault was a Mandatory Assault per the second bullet of 8.51: "enter a Contested Area across an enemy-held bridge or river." A Mandatory Assault across an enemy-controlled bridge triggers a +2 defensive drm (See 9.3 third bullet b)). This is the same situation as the Germans trying to move across the Magic Bridge without seizing it first.

Add another +1 because the boundary was flooded (9.3 fourth bullet), so a total drm of +3 for the bridge crossing.

The CA had a DV of 2 minus 1 for D1 = 1. The TEM added another 1. And the bridge crossing added 3 for a total DV of 5.

So, the assault went off at 6-5. Your DR of 4-6 meant the assault failed. The assault crew goes D1 and must retreat back across the bridge. The CA stays at D1, and the bridge remains German-controlled. I'll wait for your confirmation before making my move.

This is one reason I think it's a mistake not to seize that bridge on D-Day. The other is that Supply can't move into Merville without the bridge.
