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. The US command receive intelligence that German armor is moving toward Carentan. An order is given for an early start to the attack, trying to forstall a possible German counterattack on the critical town of Carentan.

An entertaining variant, but it favours the Axis as it's difficult for the Allies to make a timely comeback when 2nd Armored arrives.

The Germans have the edge from the start, but have to take the opportunity before the American reinforcements arrives. That reverse the balanse.

As the US player, be prepared to be pushed back at the start.

need to advance Americans fast to get massive firepower on objectives ; trying to flank the Germans wont work here due to small map and rough terrain.
