Activate Troarn, 21PZ/125 to Caen via Bourqebus
Interdiction possible in Caen
56 10/23/2019 7:46:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message John: it is not possible to blow a bridge unless you "own" that bridge; the 16/21 bridge was seized by the Allies on 6A1 - see entry #39 in the ACTS log.

Instead you might want to consider trying to move forces to defend key VP areas: Caen (if Allies get Caen, they will win over 95% of the time) and Carentan. The safest way in clear weather is to move making as few interdiction attempts you can and also make use of the Advance Phase to get units into position.

36 10/20/2019 9:47:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message Thank you, I will gladly accept advice and these suggestions. I did not think it was possible to activate an area one doesn't have units in.
redoing my losses and move:
21 PAK to D2, retreat to Villars-Bocage, 21 PZ to D2, retreat to Tilly.
35 10/19/2019 9:37:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message 1. You could have retreated the 21pz/pak at d2 rather than elim
2. You do not have to control an Area in order to activate it. So in this case you could have activated Bretteville and tried to blow all of the bridges except 16/18, which I control.
With that knowledge, go ahead and redo your move and decide if you would like suggestions.
34 10/19/2019 9:32:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Hey John, just got your move. I have played this game hundreds of times since it came out in 1993; its my favorite game by far. My "mission" is trying to keep the game alive by interesting new players. With that thought in mind, I am offering "advice". Some players think I am impertinent to offer while others accept. So feel free to turn this offer down, no hard feelings, and we play on.
What I try to do is not "tell you what to do" (that wouldn't by any fun) but at least offer alternatives or perspective, however you want to put it, and let you decide. With that in mind, let me point out a few things.


33 10/19/2019 7:38:00 AM Turn 1 Germans Message No luck, Vassal file on it's way.

PS
I apologize for the delayed move, I needed additional time to analyse what to do. Looks like a tough game ahead for me.
