Below is a photo of the final disposition of the units in the immediate vicinity of Omaha. I'm sure I broke several rules or at least the intent of some of them, even during the structured landing phase. Please bear with me.
Phase 1. All units except the DD tanks make it to shore. Thank goodness for drift, or several infantry companies would not have made it. I had two DD tank units scheduled to come ashore during Phase 1, but none of them did. Yikes! During the German fire segment, the units in 1751 and 1646 both hit US units and eliminate companies. During the US fire phase, the 2nd Rangers at Pont du Hoc score a hit with a roll of 1. Studs... The 5th Rangers also roll a 2 and score a hit. The Germans decide to lose the infantry company and keep the 3 fp strong point. None of the other units hit. Slow going during the first phase.
Phase 2. The Germans in 1751 again score a hit and eliminate a US infantry company. During the US fire phase, the units destroy strongpoints in 1650 and 1847. Still tough going.
Phase 3. The Germans in 1751 again (studs...) eliminate a US company, and the Germans in 1848 also eliminate a US company in 1747. The US come back in their fire phase and eliminate a strongpoint in 1652, one in 1751 (time ran out for these guys), a strong point in 1749, and one in 1849. Still not enough to make any movement from the initial beach hexes. The Germans moved a few of their infantry companies back off the beach in the hopes of reforming in the next turn or so.
During the end phase, I reformed as many of the units as I could, some at full strength and some at half strength. I placed the beach head counter on Dog Red because that seemed to be the best location with easy road access.
Please let me know if I butchered this turn. I may reset the game and play again, because I spent too much time looking at the rules and not enough actually in the game.
