One of the first sizeable reinforcements was CCB, which I ordered diddle diddle straight up the middle through Liesel. This fateful decision almost totalled my command career. As seen above, moving a force of this size through a single road surrounded by polder in the face of the tiniest resistance (grey German icons at Liesel) was very stupid. I should have used my interior lines and approach from the west. The amount of time spent at Liesel was not in my budget.
|Meanwhile, at Meijel, CCR is getting nervous at the prospect of being surrounded.|
|Almost one day later, with a tremendous flank punch by the UK 227th Highland Brigade (brown icons), Liesel gets liberated.|
|And let's not forget the situation way south at Ospel, where CCA has been fighting against the fallschirmjäger for almost five days. The German forces (light blue icons) were eventually evicted from most of the town.|
|And a final screenshot of the situation at Meijel, where a joint allied force has a solid hold and has corked the German forces crossing the canal.|
|Areas of control at the end of the battle. Note the "pressure points" (red for Axis and blue for allies) with the most important one at Meijel.|
