That was easy work. I decided to weight the attack to the north, using more friendly approach there (village shielded me from the rest of the line). Mortar support was sufficient. Tanks cleared what infantry could not.
Overally, I lost only 67 men to nearly 300 Germans. German forces are fleeing in disarray.

I believe whatever lies beyond now belongs to my troops. But - if possible - I would like to rest and refit my troops.

Let me know what are you planning right now. Just telling: I want to turn my force into mechanized unit by the time I land (or fight a little) in France. Also. Your decision is to make if I should going French Armoured Division in Normandy or 2 other French Divisee Blindee landing in southern France.

I always thought you were the 1st DLF?

Emm, I made no exact plans on this. It was supposed to be generic battalion facing key French battles of that era, as if we completely stuck to history we would have our hands tied a little bit. All French battalions' paths can be exactly re-enacted and these were not in one place as we do in this campaign. Which was easy until now as most of French forces were fighting in relatively one place. I was sticking more or less to 1st DFL for most of the time... and now you should decide where to send me.
You plan this campaign for me. It is yours to decide

If you want a mechanized unit then you should land North:
if you go from South you will have to go through more mountainous land (such as the old 'Massif Central', not high but very large and still mountainous), so you better need motorized (for swifter strategic move, not combat) infantry with more artillery than tanks, than the mechanised 2ème Division Blindée of Leclerc, which landed in Normandy (2nd French Armored Division, 1 August) where the land is far more flat, but maybe more treacherous with bocage, why you do need much infantry if you don't want to lose many tanks...

I think we will roughly keep with the 1st DLF, so we will stay in Italy for a little bit, then land in Southern France, then Vosges Mountains, Operation Nordwind, Colmar Pocket.

I will post a new scenario on the weekend, because I need to make a new map and don't have as much free time now than I used to. See you then!

Okay, as promised, the next scenario. We will stay in Italy for a short while before going over to the motherland.

Quote:
After breaking through the Pontecorvo Line we chased the Germans north and participated in the capture of Rome, the eternal city. Only one day later came even bigger news: Allied forces have landed in France! Maybe we will see our homes again soon.

After Rome we continued our advance north against German delaying actions. We have now reached the plains of Tuscany. Our next objective is the town of Sienna. Elements of a German Panuer Division have set up a makeshift defensive position in a village in our path.

-Deploy your forces
-Destroy or bypass the enemy and reach the other edge of the map on the road

OK, here we go.
Enemy force failed to ambush me effectively (though one or two trucks were lost). Panzergrenadiere lost a lot of men in that town and PzIVs failed to push in time and got caught in nasty urban combat Then I conducted pincer movement and cleared my way towards next objective.

Casualties are noticeable, but acceptable given enemy losses.

Emmm, actually before this one. I assumed some time has passed (about a month?), so refit should take place.
Do not tell me I was supposed to do it without it -.-'
Otherwise we misunderstood each other. Well, as an argument... one company stayed out of the battle.

Yeah nevermind, I didn't think of it either, still a bit rusty after the hiatus. Will post the next one during the weekend.
