253 7/7/2019 8:30:00 PM Turn 4 Tom Germans Message After the Rangers cleared Grandcamp and St. Mere fell on June 7, I was very unsure I could hold Carentan. I had to send 6FS to Isigny to make sure I got two rolls to drop the causeway. But with only two fresh units in Carentan the Allies has a 14-9 assault that I could do nothing about. I feared an airstrike against St. Jores would keep those two units (including the only adjacent artillery) from Carentan, and then post-assault the Corps arty and the USN bombards created the very real possibility of no fresh German units in Carentan at the start of J9 -- the death knell for the town.
252 7/6/2019 12:23:00 PM Turn 4 Nels Allies Message Usually I have something to say about the games. Not much to say on this one. I made a couple of decisions, not sure whether they were good ones. Talked to Malcomson, one of them was bad.

On the 8th, we had that game of chicken going in Carentan, you holding units out while I still had bombardments, ready to regroup in. I decided to hold the advantage, pray for no weather change, and double impulse to assault at the end of the day. I reasoned that it would make it a game. There were light German casualties, but if I had Carentan in play, it would be a game. I was behind, so I decided to play as though the weather wouldn't change. It changed, and perhaps I should have re-rolled it. But I still thought that even if you contested Trevieres and Isigny, I could still execute the turn ending contest of Carentan. I'm interested if that was the right play. I'm not sure.

I decided to try for Pont, Foret (contesting St. Lo and Balleroy on the 10th), and something else (Tilly?) for the win. My intention was to have Brit corps arty in Bretteville and Verson to start the 10th threatening to Caen and Villars. That was probably a mistake. One of those artillery should have gone to Sword. Talked about it with Malcomson. He has honed that back door approach to Caen. Even if it's stopped, it wrecks more German units in the +1 terrain than the Caen meatgrinder wrecks.

And that's game. No complaints about the early game. Some good luck, some bad luck. But once I was behind, certainly when the weather changed on the 8th, I'm not sure I picked the best line for a win. Sometimes playing from behind is fun. No pressure, and trying to find the right line is a challenge.
