Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

briefing for 'Maxi':

Quote
Normandy, June 7th 1944.

Pre battle allied situation:
After a day of bloody fighting the Allies captured first ground inland in Normandy.
Troops were pooring in from the sea to reinforce the weary units in the frontline.
The battle you are going to play is set in  the Canadian theatre of operations.

The Canadian 9th Brigade, part of 3rd Canadian division, landed around 11.00hr  in the morning of June 6th, bue to enemy activity they had to change course and didn’t land at the proposed beach, St Aubin, but instead they landed at Bernieres.
Bernieres already had units of the 7th and 8th brigade in position, which caused several trafficjams, 9th brigade therefore was not able to advance without delays, the drive for Caen was to be continued only at 16.00 hours.
9th brigade had to go to the preplanned assembly point at Beny sur Mer and from there on reinforce the allied advance towards Caen.
9th brigade , led by Brigadier General Cunningham, consisted of 3 regiments:
--the Highland light infantry regiment  of Canada, led by LTC Griffiths.  
--the Stormont,  Dundas & the Glengarry Highlanders, led by Christiansen
--the North Nova Scotia Highlanders(NNS), led by LTC Petch.
Armor support came from the 27th armored regiment Sherbrooke Fusiliers.
From their assembly point the brigade had to advance towards the Carpiquet airfield (Caen).
At 1820hr the NNS and the 27th Sherbooke  armor moved out.
At 20.00hr they reached Villons les Buisson and met strong German resistance (716th Infantry division).
Due to the resistance it became impossible to reach Caens airfield, and the units halted for the night since most units were to far spread out and their commander was worried of counterattacks by 21st Pz division or 12th Pz SS division.
June 8th at 07.45 in the morning of the 7th the 9th brigade continued their advance with light Stuart tanks in front of C company of NNS in carriers. Closely  followed by  the rest mounted on Shermans of the Sherbrooks.
Villons les Buisson was quickly liberated and at 0900hr the Canadians moved on.
At Buron they knocked out a PAK from 716th Infantry division and at 1300hr C coy reached Authie.
The unit then moved on towards Franqueville........

Pre battle German situation:
The Germans had 2 divisions near Caen, which was the 12th SS Panzer division Hitlerjugend and the Heer's 21st Panzer division.
12th SS Panzer division was commanded by SS Brigadefuhrer Fritz Witt.
Part of this unit was Meyers 25th Panzer Grenadier regiment.
On the evening of June 6th the 25th was stationed at Orbec.
‘Panzer’ Meyer already sent out patrols towards Caen, angry as he was because he didn’t receive any orders to move.
Hitlers permission came very late, the division was assigned to several commanders and finally Meyer was ordered to move to Evrecy. During the early hours of the next morning, harassed by allied planes, the units finally moved towards Evrecy.
All these delays meant that the division was unable to attack on the planned hour.

June 7th OKW (OberKommando West) ordered a counterattack by 12th SS Pz Div and 21st Pz Div.
The attack, planned for 1600, was directed against allied units at the allied landing beaches of Juno and Sword.
12th SS Pz Div was ordered to advance along the railroad (west) Caen - Luc-sur-Mer while 21st Pz Div would move on the other side of the same railroad (east).
The advance went slow, 12th SS Pz Div’s leading units only reached the line Verson towards Rots.
21st Pz Div. arrived at Epron around noon. Inbetween the 2 divisions was a big gap.
Surviving units of the 716th div, after their first engagements with the Canadians, were in place but  widely spread.
Meyer again send out patrols to find out where the allies were. Reports brought the info that Buron/Rots and Carpiquet were still in hands of units from the 716th but that the first Allies, Canadians, were seen at Villons-Les-Buisson.
Meyers unit was ordered to close the gap, inbetween 12st Pz Div and 12th SS Pz Div, in an effort to keep the allies from reaching Carpiquet and it’s airfield.
Meyer’s unit went into the defensive with setting up his command post at the Abbaye d'Ardennes, south from Cussy. It’s hurch towers provided cover and were ideal observation posts for Meyer’s artillery.
Germans units were rushing towards their starting point. Some lacked fuel, others were harassed by Allied fighters, but Meyer was confident that he could attack at 1600hr. At 1300hr, June 7th, he saw an allied Sherman tank nearing his position......

Here this fight starts!

designer notes:
The battle is set for H2H.
Forces OOB’s are very accurate, and although historical we strongly believe that the balance should be OK for a game.
The map is a good example how the area looked, we’ve put a lot of detail into it.
The location of the towns and villages were chosen using old topographic maps and Google Earth.

We hope you will enjoy this battle as much as we did creating and testing!

Koen,

printing your email out like that will get you literally thousands of spam mails re: viagra, rolex etc. , as the spam bots are looking just for that.

My recomendations:

Either dissolve it into e.g. "koen (dot) combatmission (at) gmail (dot) com" or post it as a picture, the bots stil cannot read pix.

FYI
