The expected British and American invasion of France will be at anytime. Der Fuehrer has ordered that the invasion must be stopped at all costs, but he has restricted major deployment decisions to himself. So command has been order to place all line battalions to cover the main areas of allied advance. Armor will be under strict control for Der Furhrer, but he has deemed local command can use them in emergencies. Resources will be scarce so command will need to husband them. Extra artillery reserves can be counted on, but the status of Luftwaffe support will be an unknown and getting them may cost in not being able to get other resources.


For deployment, we will need to disperse some of the line battalions to cover the Allied advance, but once we know where the attack is center we must regroup the units to strike at the attack. So on the Utah beach, we will have the 1st Battalion, 729th Infantry Division with AT support from divisional artillery. Behind them one battalion will in each of the area's, Seine, Picardy, Belgium, Champagne, Belgium, and Ardennes. Supporting armor have be cleared to deploy in Picardy and the 70th Panzer Battalion will be in Belgium finishing it's refitting from it's deployment in Russia. We are also deploying an extra battery of 105mm guns in the Cotentin area to support the beach defenses. 


We will need to be vigilant for any attack, so command has specified that more patrols and having more troops ready for action at a moments notice for the next month or so. Beach defenses will need to be on full alert for any invasion when the moon is new as well as high tides. Double checking of waterline defenses and new mines will be added to defenses. 

Remember the Americans and British must be stopped.

Notes - This represents the strict setup for the campaign. The Germans are setup dispersed and will need to reconstitute as quickly as possible. The extra artillery and vigilance will be purchased for the defensing troops to try to inflict as many casualties as possible on the Ivy Division. But the Germans will have a tough time to defend as there is a 3-1 line battalion difference. See prior posting for Allied command decisions.
