But the game must go on, even though the weather was shocking.
The storm meant any attacks would be lucky to go in at 1:1
The Commonwealth launched no attacks.
The US were stalled also.
Overcast and both sides started attacking.
The Germans would have attacked in the stormy weather,
but were recovering from the previous setbacks.
Richard pointed out to me all the Victory Points that were located on the Cherbourg Peninsula.
As a result I got more aggressive with the US forces.
Still overcast, but a significant upheaval occurred before Caen.
The Germans had counterattacked and pushed back two British incursions.
But then the British attacked where the Germans had pulled troops out to attack.
I was lucky when a few German "Determined Defence" turned out to be not so determined. A tricky little game mechanic that can stop a successful attack.
Note also that the Commonwealth have largely achieved their historical advance (red dotted line).
But where it seems to matter ...
What looks like a breakthrough can probably be sealed off.
Fighting on the flooded terrain is no fun.
I also pulled the US forces back from trying to loop round below Cherbourg (right hand side of picture).
