26 9/19/2021 4:06:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Edit VPs German: from 0 to 0
Allied: from 1 to 5
25 9/19/2021 4:06:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message Adjusting victory points for the elimination of the 902/Lehr panzer grenadier unit (3 points) and the 711th static infantry division (1 point).
24 9/19/2021 3:23:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message 6 roll on the 10-1 gives a -/2 result which eliminates the two German 1-6's in 4103. The CDN 4-12 armor will advance two spaces to 4104 and the GD armored division will just advance into 4103.
Let me know where the Germans retreat from the 3rd, 4th and 5th attacks and then I'll do the allied mechanized move phase. Looks like I have broken thru in the East with the British.

Message from Allied:
The attack on 4202 gets a 1 roll and a -/3 result and the German 2-6 must retreat 3 spaces. I will advance both units of the 17th division to 4202 and stop.
6th attack at 4103 by the GD armored division, CDN 2nd armored brigade and the 3/6 para regiment against the two reduced German (1-6's) is a 10-1 attack. The Germans are surrounded by the 5th attack and cannot retreat.

Message from Allied:
The 4th attack got a 3 roll and a 1/3 result. Not what I wanted. The German unit must retreat first to the vacant space 3705 and then two more spaces. I will retreat 1 since both units can move again the mechanized phase.
5th attack is at 4202 by the 17th armored division which has divisional integrity. 24 to 2 is reduced 2 columns for the major river to an 8-1.

Message from Allied:
On the 3rd attack at 2207, the 5 roll gives a -/2 result and the German unit retreats 2 spaces. Let me know where he retreats. I will advance here.
4th attack is at 3704 by the British 3rd infantry division and 4th armored brigade against a German 2-6. 20 to 2 is reduced 1 column by the German HQ to make this a 9-1 attack.

Message from Allied:
The 9-1 against the Para unit in 1906 gets a 3 roll and a 1/3 result. This eliminates the Para unit and I will retreat 1.
3rd attack is at 2207 by the British 49th division and two armored brigades. 26 to 2 reduced one column for bocage and one column for HQ to make this an 8-1 attack.

Message from Allied:
The Carpet bombing roll of 5 only got a -/1 result which will eliminate the problem unit but leave a 3-12 in 1405. This is a big break for the Germans.
2nd combat is at 1906 by the US 2nd Infantry division and the 113th armored cavalry regiment against the surrounded and unsupplied German 8/3 Para unit (2-6). 21 to 1 (halved due to supply) is reduced to the 9-1 column for bocage.

Message from Allied:
Allied attacks for turn 1:
1st roll is for carpet bombing in hex 1405 against the two reduced Lehr mechanized units. This roll is under the 6-1 column and will result in steps lost.
17 9/19/2021 12:14:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Edit VPs German: from 0 to 0
Allied: from 0 to 1
16 9/19/2021 12:14:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message I think the 346th German infantry division elimination gives the allies 1 victory point so I'll make that change.
15 9/19/2021 12:05:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message 2 roll on the 10-1 overrun gives a -/3 result and eliminates the reduced 346th division since he can't retreat through zones of control. The 17th armored division automatically advances into 3903 and has 4 movement points left. Zones of control don't extend across major rivers (8.21) so the 17th will move to 4102 and stop there. This will end the overrun attempts for the Allied move phase. Now to move all the other units.

Message from Allied:
British 11th armored division will retreat 1 back across the river to 3702 for the 1/2 result on the last overrun attempt at 3903. Next, the 17th British armored division crosses to 3902 (5 movement points) and attempts another overrun of 3903 (3 more movement points) against the reduced 346th division 2-6 which is halved for being out of supply. 12 to 1 makes this a 10-1 roll.

Message from German:
3903 attack at 4:1.
12 9/19/2021 6:13:00 AM Turn 1 German Message I think there is some learning / getting our eye in to be done. The 1-6 should have stayed in 4002?

I suggest we play on with the overstack.
11 9/18/2021 3:48:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message I had made a mistake on my 2nd overrun and realized that it takes units with divisional integrity to attempt an overrun. I had tried to perform that with the 8th armored brigade which was illegal. Since the attempt got a 6 roll and a 2/- result, it had no effect on the German unit so I'll let it stand. I was getting ready to do the overrun roll against the Germans in 3903 and listing the German units and realized that you are overstacked there. You can only have one division in a space plus HQ units and the special armor 2-12 units. The 731/711 regiment and the 346th infantry division makes for an overstack there. I recommend that either:
1. We ignore it for now, or
2. We put the 731/711 (1-6) back in it starting hex of 4002, (in which case the GD armored division will attempt to overrun it there) or
3. we eliminate the 731/711 for overstacking (which I don't like to do. We are just learning this system.), or
4. you come up with some other suggestion.
10 9/17/2021 2:28:00 AM Turn 1 German Message All adjustments done.

Tomorrow (Saturday) we are up before dawn to drive to the ferry, which itself is an 8 hour crossing. I might not reappear online until Sunday.
9 9/16/2021 4:26:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message Not the best of rolls:
On the 3rd overrun attempt the 5 roll on the 4-1 column gives a 1/1 result. Since the German unit was already reduced, it will have to retreat 1 to either 1807 or 1907. I will retreat the 29th to 1804.
On the 4th overrun attempt the 3 roll against 1606 gives a 1/1 result and again the reduced German unit must retreat one to either 1607 or 1507. I will retreat the 35th motorized to 1705.
On the 5th overrun attempt the 6 roll gives a 1/- result and the 9th motorized division will retreat back 1 to 1304 and the Lehr 4-12 holds.
On the first overrun the GD armored division will move to 4002 and stop in that ZoC. Let me know where the Germans retreat from the 1st, 3rd and 4th overrun attempts so that I can continue my move and possibly do a couple more overruns before moving to the combat phase.

Message from Allied:
1st roll is for the 3rd overrun attempt by the 29th motorized division vs the 2-9 para unit in 1806. 12 to 2 is 6-1 odds but the bocage and Para HQ lowers this to a 4-1.
2nd roll is for the overrun attempt by the 35th motorized division against the 2-9 para unit in 1606. 12 to 2 is 6-1 but the bocage, Para HQ and city lowers this to a 2-1.
3rd roll is for the overrun attempt by the motorized 9th division against the 4-12 Lehr unit in 1306. 12 to 4 is 3-1 but the bocage lowers this to a 2-1.
7 9/16/2021 1:29:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message The 3 on the 7-1 gives a -/2 result and you will need to retreat 2 to either 4103 or 4201 or eliminate the two reduced units GD armor division advances into 4001 and has 3 movement points left.
The 6 on the 1-1 gives a 2/- and the 8th brigade retreats 2 back to 2204. I've got a Dr appointment and will continue this later in the day.

Message from Allied:
I just sent the first Allied move file and designated some overruns.
1st roll for the overrun attempt by the GD's division against the two 1-6's in 4001. 16 to 2 makes 8-1 but the German HQ lowers this to a 7-1.
2nd roll for the overrun attempt by the 8th armor brigade against the 2-6 para in 2107. 6 to 2 makes 3-1 but the bocage and Para HQ lowers this to a 1-1.
5 9/15/2021 1:55:00 PM Turn 1 Allied Message The British 66/6 can't retreat through 3802 or 3803 because of the divisions there but can and will retreat though 3902 and into 3901 stacking with the 3-8 para there.
4 9/15/2021 3:36:00 AM Turn 1 German Message Roll of 2 gives us a 1/2.

Assuming you retreat somewhere of your choice, I will take the 1 loss to the 2-6 and advance both units to the vacant space.

No file sent. An off to dentist (and other things) and will do the mech part this evening.

Message from German:
Turn 1 sole German attack.

2-6 in 4002 and 5-6 in 3904 V your 2-8 in 3903. 7v2 will be a 3:1 attack but Germans get +1 column shift for the HQ at 4005. No terrain consideration. Roll is on 4:1.

2 9/14/2021 4:15:00 AM Turn 1 German Message > the 902/Lhr reduced unit should be a 3-12 instead of a 2-12. We will have to remember that this counter is incorrect.

Have tried to put a memory jogger near the tracks.

If we play a 2nd game we need to go back to your corrected setup and swap sides.
