375 6/20/2019 10:22:00 PM Turn 7 Germans Nels Message Thanks, that Montebourg move is a favorite of mine. Working to tweak how long to stay there, when to run (usually I don't want to hold it after the 9th). Sometimes I set up to assault on the 7th.

I will get a new one set up, my Allies v. your Germans.
374 6/20/2019 5:08:00 PM Turn 7 Allies Tom Message And I meant to mention I liked your Montebourg moves. The artillery there really turns Utah Beach into a shooting gallery (where are the Band of Brothers when you need them?), and the assault from Mountebourg into St. Mere has the potential to completely shut down the US attack into Carentan
373 6/20/2019 4:58:00 PM Turn 7 Allies Tom Message Please accept the honorable surrender of my forces, who fought hard but were poorly led. Kudos to you Nels for your stalwart defense of Carentan -- I had monster rolls for a day-and-a-half yet never really threatened the place again after the J11/A0 double impulse near miss. At least I did my best poker move and got all my chips into the pot with the best hand, but a 55% chance of success means victory and defeat are equally likely. Without a weather change on the 11th I couldn't prevent you from massing around Carentan, so by the 12th I didn't see a path to 9.6. The opening tank attack into 35 was simply a desperation move to keep your corps arty from pounding my attack force in 34. With the overrun I should have gone for the +6 roll with all three 9 ID infantry into Foret, a long shot to be sure but nothing better out there so why not? Thanks for another great game and congrats on the win, and if you want a rematch send in the landing craft whenever you're ready.
372 6/20/2019 7:03:00 AM Turn 7 Germans Nels Message And that horrible "decision" not to regroup out of Merville to avoid the triple. Can't make those mistakes against people who know what to do with the Allied pieces.
371 6/20/2019 6:37:00 AM Turn 7 Germans Nels Message All those big rolls, and the one time you absolutely needed par, you came up one pip shy on your double impulse. Also, that weird monster roll that almost gave you the triple early in this turn. I suppos you were keeping a couple of units of 9th div back just in case you needed to counterattack Isigny, but those units in the Foret assault would have taken the advantage from me, too.

In other words, it was about as close as a game of Breakout can get.

I am real displeased with a couple of my decisions. My St. Jean and Marigny play sucked units away from me without enough effect, although it did take bombardments and an impulse or two from you. The real stinker was putting the flak on 9 into Merville when I had 8 fresh units in Troarn! I got cocky, and you made me pay by taking Tilly on the 10th. I possibly could have held both Tilly and Foret. Instead, I let it become a Carentan game. Terrible play by me.
370 6/20/2019 6:26:00 AM Turn 7 Germans Nels Message I count that at 17:6 (7 lead + 2x 4th + 2x 2nd + 4/arty + 2/arty + corps + + 2 div bonuses + daylight), and down 3 on the dice is 8 CPs.

Lead to D1, D2 arty R, 3 of the D1s go D2 and R for 2 apiece, 8 CPs total. One of the retreating units has to continue the retreat to Coutances due to stacking.

By my calculation, a 12:2 roll (and you have 2 chances at it!) will clear Caumont, so...

Weather is now overcast...

12G7 Activate 24/le Beny Bocage, and move the 17ss/flak to Caumont.

Back to you if you'd like to roll it out.

Message from Germans Nels:
Great game! Let's see what we get here. I figured life had interrupted, but I had also awkwardly worded my last, with my move buried in the middle of the next to last post, so I figured I'd call attention to it.

But enough rambling delay. Reroll time!
368 6/19/2019 11:26:00 PM Turn 7 Allies Tom Message Well I'll send it back to you for the re-roll as I'm off to bed -- either way great game!

Sorry for the delay Nels -- hate it when life gets in the way of gaming!
Time to end this -- I've had monster dice for the past turn-and-a-half but am no closer to victory, so once more unto the breach, dear friends

366 6/19/2019 9:28:00 PM Turn 7 Germans Nels Message no rush, but i wanted to highlight that i made my 6, and its over to you.
365 6/19/2019 2:08:00 PM Turn 7 Germans Nels Message Put more succinctly, it's this:

Lead D2 and R (2); D2 flak R (1); 265th arty D2 for 2; 275th arty D1 for 1; that's 6 CPs total. In my map, I failed to mark the retreating units D2. I've corrected it.
364 6/19/2019 2:03:00 PM Turn 7 Germans Nels Message 6 CPs. Lead goes D2 and R for 2. 2x spent arty go D1 for 2. D2 unit R for 1. One of the D1 arty goes D2 for another 1.

12G6 Act. Periers, move 3FS/5FS into Carentan. 12A6 up.

Lead is spent 5FS (3) + 1 fresh + 2 TEM = 6 and 16 steps.
