D-Day+6 - the other sectors

Apart from the adjoining sectors I had little knowledge of the progress of the game in the other sectors. Overall it was an Allied win.

The pictures are in order of play rather than sector

An attemped panoramic view of the table

Don attempting to organise us

Western sectors (US)

101st paras advancing (they were on my left and we could provide shirt range support to each other if possible

US 2nd Armoured approaching Caretan

While their HQ hides itself away from harm

Armoured infantry entering Caretan, the scene of much street fighting

Artillery supporting 6th FJ REgiment opens fire on Caretan

All quiet in the 452nd German Infantry Division v's 29th US Infantry Division sector

Caretan, it was in two sectors, for the Allies the problem was the river/canal on the northern side restricting access

Units of 101st Airborne moving up to the west of Caretan

a footbridge comes in handy

MASSIVE! And it's beautiful too. How do you play this game and not spend all your time snapping photos?

What a day you had! Astonishingly good terrain and troops. Inspirational. Looking at all those shiny toys reminded me of all the toys I still have sitting in boxes awaiting my attention...
