Once again, German Panzer divisions run wild during the German turn, taking a big chunk off of several Allied units. Here is the situation:
In the interest of freeing up additional supply for my units advancing on Paris, I start to attack towards the port of Le Havre.
I then send my tanks to start pushing German infantry back along the river:
After eliminating the Infantry, I shift my focus to the Cotentin Peninsula. There is one stubborn unit there that I really want to get rid of:
That attack is finally enough to get rid of that pesky Panzergrenadier.
At the end of turn seven, I’ve established a strong perimeter in advance of the beachhead. Soon I will be able to break out towards Paris in the east and Brest in the west.
I, of course, forgot to take a screen shot at the beginning of turn eight. The closest thing I have is right after I starting moving, planning to take Le Havre and clear the coastline of units, then push in to Paris.
I move on to Le Havre, and then start to move up the coast and into France, wiping out infantry and Armor.
I also am now in position to eliminate the last unit in the vicinity of the Cotentin Peninsula. Now I will be able to free up those units to push west towards Brest.
At the end of turn eight I am well positioned to move out towards Paris and Brest. Hopefully next turn the breakout can start.
