June 17 (turn 12) and the fighting continues in overcast conditions.
Whoops! I haven't been keeping an eye on automatic victory conditions. Seems the Germans won an automatic victory on turn 11 when the US reached seven (three step) units eliminated or reduced to cadre. However I could have avoided this by withdrawing the 82nd US Airborne, which I could have done and will do now.
It is an Allied Victory as they control 13 VPs worth of towns/cities beyond the historical line, while the Germans just hold one. They need 10 VPs or more for Victory. Capturing that quarter of caen contributed 2 VPs. The Orne Bridgehead contributed 4 VPs. The Cadre losses are high and a few more German attacks or unsuccessful Allied attacks could trip them over (7 for the US and 5 for the Commonwealth - they finished on 5 and 3 respectively, although the US could recover by withdrawing the 101st Airborne).
