Command Ops 2: Interior Lines!

This is a continuation from my previous post about Command Ops-Westwall "Counterstroke in the Swamp" scenario Spoilers warning.

Day 2, 7:52. As reinforcements pour in, I order them south towards the critical road junction at Meijel and the stretch of road between Liesel and Heitrak. These two pieces of real estate dominate the two main bridges that the Germans are using to move across the canal.

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.

UK reinforcements everywhere! Great news for everybody. The US grunts of CCR, get some relief from the 46th Highland Brigade (brown icons). Note how they arrive to Meijel from the west (where my interior lines are). This resulted in a very organized joint fall in.
