Mike and I completed another day of this epic struggle to secure a bridge too far.
Mike continued his run of poor combat die rolls, but as the German player, he has the forces and resolve to withstand the losses.
At this stage the Allies appear to have their flanks well secured, however the Germans have built up a good defensive line on the Waal. The Allies need to still take Nijmegen and get the 43rd Division up and force a river crossing and then survive the inevitable counterattack (which, with backs to the river could result in unacceptable allied casualties).
So far the Allied losses have given the Germans six victory points. If that rate of loss continues the Germans will win an automatic victory (they need twelve). The trapped paras outside Arnhem represent another two and a half VPs ripe for the picking.
