Invasion ist com! Normandie! (HPS AAR)

22:00 Hours 6th June 1944

Panzer Grenadier Regiment 125 continues to press hard against the British paras on the Orne. Though its 7th Battalion got a severe bloody nose, its remaining battalions support by heavy weapons platoons and several battalions of Panzer Regiment 22 push the paras back. Elements of G.R.736 have started to push out of Franceville though their supply situation is dire.

Troop movements have also been unhindered by aerial attack as night covers all movements. OB West and AOK 7 have written express orders to ensure that mechanized and armour units in particular move under the cover of darkness.

Reading Material arrives…

Yep it got here earlier than expected. Richard Frank’s Guadalcanal will soon be living on bytesanddice’s bed side table as I eagerly devour this acclaimed piece. Some nice photos as well, though many are the commonly known ones of the Wasp, Hornet and Enterprise being attacked. Some great ones of several battle damaged cruisers I hadnt seen before. Will post a review when I finish!
