After the dust has settled….

We have a winner.  After a very hard fought battle featuring no less than 17 double and 22 single battles where the Germans, with  the element of surprise, greatly superior air cover and not inconsiderable support from the rear managed only to breakthrough the ‘line’ of Allied defence at isolated points. The Allied line, although frequently buckling under the intense pressure and threatening, on more than one occasion to lets the Axis forces stream through, held  just enough to deny the Axis reaching their main goals of reaching the Trig Capuzzo in anything like sufficient numbers.  In fact the only forces of noticable strength that did get through were the Armoured Car force of Ian Rowe and Mat Robinsons Panzer Kompanie on the extreme southern edge of the German advance.   Consequently the  decision for the weekend was to award the Allies a minor victory.

This, historically did not go to plan. Even so,  we can execise some artistic licencse and claim that Rommel quickly consolidated what gains he had made and quickly re assembled his forces for another big push to break the lines to make El Alamein a realistic possibility.

Thanks to everyone for attending and making this a thoroughly enjoyable event.

List sizes

Having a number of questions about list sizes and the honest answer at this stage would be that I haven’t yet decided.
To allow some flexibilty and truly fit in with the ‘thinking on the move’ nature of this event I think the best way forward is to build  one main list of 1500 (without artillery or air) and then two secondary lists of 500 and a 1000 points. Noting that you would not be expected to field all three forces together but ideally be able to field the 100o and 500 point forces at the same time if need be.

I’ll get my head around the starting point for the campaign in the next few days and then everything will become clear.

You’ll be glad to know that after a conversation with Toby (McLeod) that I have decided on a window of a few days, now just to pinpoint the exact point.

Just waiting fron a few ‘regulars’ to confirm their attendence…

A few more days should see me having all the names in place so that I can really get down to that exciting task of picking a starting point for the weekend.

Previous events, excluding Market Garden saw the weekend kicking off not from the historical ‘beginning’ but at a point that saw all invloved deeply mired in the fighting.  At Anzio, allied forces already had a beachhead and were pouring  in troops and reinforcements and the front line was already a few miles

inland. The Germans were hastily reorganising and counterattacking and it’s no surprise that they did it well. The outcome of the weekend was that although the Allies had made someground, overall their efforts fell short of what was expected.  At Falaise the Germans were in full flight, but crucially it was not a rout, they held crucial points in the ‘pocket’ and even counterattacked on occasion and once more ended the weekend bloodied and battered but in far better shape than they shold have been.  In fact, much to the disgust of the Allied command, several of the German forces fought all weekend without replenishing their losses!  Ultimately, yet another glorious Allied opportunity squandered.

At Market Garden it was more of the same.  Well organised top quality medications. German defences and perfectly timed counterattacks proving once more that it was indeed a Bridge too Far.

In summary, 5 days ago – after three hard fought campaigns from Anzio and Falaise to Arnhem the Germans have  held the upper hand. Surely it’s time for the Allies to make ammends?

You’ll be glad to hear that I wouldn’t dream of picking a favourable situation for the Allies to kick off, I’m fully aware how insulting that would be.  So, the fighting will commence
with the Allies  in the horrid situation of not knowing where the bulk of Rommel’s forces are going to hit, with  scattered reports of attacks to the North the Allies  have to, for the moment sit tight in their boxes and hope.
