Emieville-Cagny, 8km NE of Caen, France: [Best played as Axis] Operation Goodwood was Montgomery's best hope of effecting a breakout in the Caen sector in Normandy. After intense "carpet bombing", Monty sent his armor forward with very thin infantry support on a narrow front. The 11th Armored passed west and south, and the Guards Division, portrayed here, was second in line. For a time it appeared the British would break through near Cagny, but Major Hans von Luck rallied disparate elements of his Kampfgruppe to stem the British armored tide and bring Goodwood to a grinding halt with a few well positioned 88s and a company of Tigers. Can you hold out until reinforcements arrive?

No way to win the battle if you are the axis player.
Easy allied victory by heading south with all troops and overwhelming very thin defences.
The allies can choose to go for the objectives or the exit hexes. The right choice will result in a totally lopsided and somewhat boring major victory for the allies.
Resolve then, that on this very ground, with small flags waving and tinny blasts on tiny trumpets, we shall meet the enemy, and not only may he be ours, he may be us. --Walt Kelly
I strongly recommend a ROE for the Allies player not to use the southern exit hexes. That would force him to attack west instead - making this much more balanced.

The German's are spreadout-the Allies should pick a flank(schwerpunkt) and go for it with all they have got.
