Southwest of Carentan: June 13th, 1944 (Scenario Size: Brigade. Head to Head or Human vs AI for either side) The 101st Airborne Division had been fighting for a week to clear Carentan and open a direct link between the Omaha and Utah beachheads. After capturing Carentan, the division had orders to push southwest onto Hill 30 and beyond to provide protection to this critical town and crossroads. The airborne troops were tired and low on ammo after a week of fighting. For the Germans, the advancing 17th SS Panzergrenadier Division had orders to link up with the survivors of Fallschirmjaeger.Regt.6. The Fallschirmjaegers had been pushed out of Carentan just the day before and had orders to counterattack to take the town back and sever the link between the American bridgeheads. As the Americans prepared to move out they were hit by the German attack.

Good job on it, really get the feeling of awe at the amount of material the Allies can throw at you, and having to hold!

Allies can pretty much get a Draw by keeping their defense intact and causing German losses. Once the German attack is broken, they run out of time in their counter-attack with essentially little to no chance of victory

For a very high concentration of units in a relatively small area this still allows for tactics to be used and needed.
