A Very British Civil War
Note: this is clearly a “what-if” scenario, loosely based on the bustling miniatures war gaming off-shoot of the same name. Outstanding work has been done by Solway Crafts and Miniatures, and I credit them with the brilliance of this war gaming theme.
Background
England, May 1938 (designer note: note the in-game calendar notes “1944”; this is only to create the optics of lush green environment of the British Isles)
Weather: overcast, mild, dry
The very social fabric of Great Britain was torn during the apocalypse that was The Great War. The mightiest empire on the globe ended victorious, but at what cost? The rigid social hierarchy was shaken, and the world wide waves of social change did not stop at the English Channel. Class structure, worker’s rights, regional animosities have all brewed in the decades following the Great War. This has all been exacerbated by the crippling economic crisis of the 1930s, to which the ever cautious government responded to by constricting public spending ever more.
In May 1937, King Edward VIII of the United Kingdom married Wallis Simpson. The marriage to Wallis was not supported by Stanley Baldwin, the British Prime Minister; and King Edward refused to abdicate. This marriage left the British government, and most of the people, alienated; and public hatred for King Edward and Queen Wallis rose. Parliament was torn, and in the general election of 1937, Baldwin was defeated. The Conservative party, ripped by the issue of King Edward’s marriage, as well as economic and regional tensions, broke apart, and a large segment of the Tory support went to the British Union of Fascists. Oswald Mosley’s promise to ensure public order, and shore up the Empire, resonated with a public tired of public disturbances, strikes in essential services, and the economic malaise. The Labour party too split, with the more radical sections forming their own splinter parties which ran their own candidates. The 1937 election results saw a fractured parliament, and although only winning slightly over 200 seats, and less than 30% of the vote, the BUF formed the largest caucus in the House of Commons. King Edward VIII asked Oswald Mosely to form a government. Mosley did so and almost immediately issued “Orders of Council”, outlawing strikes, restricting collective bargaining, and establishing new offences for unauthorized public gatherings, and publishing “any article intended to alarm the public”. Any opposition was swiftly responded to, if not by the police, then by Mosely’s own BUF Blackshirts, the BUF’s paramilitary wing.
In January 1938, a protest by Dockyard workers in Liverpool was brutally crushed by the BUF and elements of the Regular Army; and violent clashes began across the country; between the Kings troops and those of several other factions. The British Civil War has begun!

Factions: The outbreak of conflict led several groups to attempt to seize the country or their own personal goals. Major factions included:
On the Right (Axis in this scenario
* The Edwardian Army – elements of the professional Army, bound to King Edward VIII.
* The Royal Navy and Royal Marines – bound by tradition and culture to remain loyal to the reigning monarch, and the majority have done so.
* The British Union of Fascists (or “BUF”) – the dominant political party, led by Oswald MOSLEY and heavily backed by German and Italian interests. Mosley has garnered considerable support in his efforts to restore order internally and restore the status of Britain’s Empire
* The Mosley Youth – a “social club” of young men, who have been drilled and armed by unknown sources, and have formed para-military units to push the BUF agenda.
* Foreign Volunteer Units: after the recruiting of numerous foreign elements to fight in the Spanish Civil War, similar detachments have been formed to back those with similar agendas in the British Civil War. Contingents from other fascist and imperialist sympathizers have been formed. Here we will see the presence of the “Hanoverian Legion”, volunteers from Germany, who are backing the Edwardian and BUF efforts
On the Left (Allied in this scenario)
* The Albertine Army – elements of the regular forces, plus most of the “Territorial Army”, backing the young Prince Albert’s claim to the throne.
* The Anglican League - A large army led by a group of bishops and archbishops, they were aligned with the Albertine Army. Many are veterans of the Great War.
* The People’s Party Army - Made up of disillusioned Labour party supporters, disgruntled workers and Spanish Civil War veterans, they are seeking to turn Britain into a Socialist state based upon Lenin's Russia.
* The Farmer’s Union: radical small plot farmers and farm working hands, seeking better pay, price subsidies, and land redistribution. They are heavily influenced by Marxist doctrine.
* The Student’s Union: like students before and after them, the university students have ramparts to thwart whomever they view as authoritarian,
* Foreign Volunteer Units: after the recruiting of numerous foreign elements to fight in the Spanish Civil War, similar detachments have been formed to back those with similar agendas in the British Civil War. Groups of Americans, Canadians, and ANZAC units have been formed; here we will see the Lafayette Battalion, formed of French volunteers, many fresh from the savage fighting in Spain.
This scenario occurs in the West Coast port town of Twaddlemore. Twaddlemore is the home base for a small Royal Navy destroyer flotilla, as well as being a mid-sized port for international commerce. Given that the United Kingdom lives or dies based on this freedom to trade overseas, the port is vital to all in this conflict. The Royal Navy, which for the most part has remained loyal to King Edward VIII, dispatched the flotilla two days ago to join the rest of the fleet, tasked with stemming the flow of foreign volunteers coming to fight for their faction of choice. Many of these foreigners have come directly from fighting for the Nationalists or the Republicans in Spain, who have endured two years of their own brutal Civil War already.
Yesterday the dock workers, who are heavily influenced by communist agents and are affiliated with the People’s Party, refused to move armaments stored in the dock warehouses. Instead, they armed themselves and fighting broke out when security staff sought to control the situation. Who opened fire first is both in dispute and a moot point at this juncture. A company of the Army’s Provost Corps was rushed to Twaddlemore by train, but a bomb was used to derail the trail just outside of town. Multiple factions are either in town currently or rumoured to be headed this way. The Telephone Exchange is the key to communicating with the rest of the country, and is clearly a goal to secure. Likewise, the docks and the armaments stored there in are also of immense value. Lastly, the mysterious new Wireless Tower being built on the south shore is of unknown value, as the work crews are from “away” and appear to be quite Teutonic in manner.
This battle will surely prove that the term “Civil War” is clearly a misnomer.
A historically fictional 'what if' look at the events leading up to the Deutsche Afrika Korps capture of Tobruk in June 1942.
SCENARIO DESCRIPTION
A meeting engagement played out in the wooded terrain of the Ardennes at the beginning of the Bulge. 60+ turns.

The Germans are trying to seize important territory: bridges, cross-roads, and towns to allow breakthrough armored thrusts. Central to this map is the village of L’Shone and its surrounding road network.

The Americans are trying to occupy the same terrain to prevent its use by the Germans.

It is hard to believe that it was only a week ago when we first heard of “The Outbreak”. Initially it was thought to be a terrorist biological attack, with outbreaks in large cities overwhelming medical facilities. But soon it was apparent it was much more… the more we hear, the more we realize that we know very little – the cause – the prognosis – or the scale of this crisis. All remain unknown – at least to the general populace. What the “government” knows may be something else again.
You are Jack McCann, police chief in the small coastal tourist town of Shady Acres, Maine. Normally by this time of the year, your town is overrun with loud tourists from the cities of the East Coast. If only that were the case.
Four days ago a large staff of the Center for Disease Control showed up at the Town Hall, and brusquely informed the Mayor, Chuck Zeto, that the Federal Government was immediately taking control of “Shady Island”, a favourite picnic spot in the bay. This was all one-way communication, you don’t know much more other than soon thereafter a convoy of sealed trucks arrived and barbed wire was being strung across the access bridge to the island.
The National Guard has been mobilized, and your own police force has been placed under the command of the governor’s office.
And yet even now, you are not sure why. A strange illness has swept the globe, but what little news was initially released was like something from a bad movie. Now that trickle of news has stopped altogether. The official story is that a Chinese cyber attack has shut down the Internet, but this being Small Town America, there are a lot of conspiracy theories floating about.
The Mayor, Chuck Zeto, who also is the local bank manager, has asked that citizens assist in securing the town from whatever threats may arise. Given that the local National Rifle Association sponsored Chuck’s last campaign, their members were eager to show their affinity for the 2nd amendment and reaffirm their ownership of large capacity magazines and assault rifles. With some hesitation, you agreed to deputize these men, but have asked them to stay at home until they may actually be required. Their training and experience doesn’t necessarily match their enthusiasm.
You were at your office all night. You had a call from Doctor Jacobie at the hospital. Dr. Jacobie, a Vietnam war draft dodger who only returned from Canada in the 1990s, is determined to ignore what he considers a “fascist edict” that all patients in suspected cases of the “outbreak” be turned over to the C.D.C. immediately and quarantined on the Island. “It reminds me of the interment of the Japanese in 1942!” Jacobie ranted, and he said he would treat all patients as “patients, not criminals”. At that, you sent two teams of part time deputies to the hospital to deal with any issues that may arise.
The town is an important transportation hub, in that the coastal railway runs through the town. The Railway has deployed their own security at the train station, as if there is an epidemic, it is important to prevent those infected from traveling. Hopefully they have enough staff to do the job.
You remained in your office all night, and it seemed that things may be calming down, but then with a complete news black out, and the mute C.D.C. guards by the island Park, who knows? You did receive several calls from citizens overnight, reporting screams and other noises from the areas near cemeteries last night; typically the local teens will go there to drink and smoke up. Although you usually will send a Deputy to put the run on them, there are more important things to do now.
The sun is coming up, but a heavy thick fog has blankets the town. A convoy of C.D.C. relieve staff are expected in from Bangor any minute; hopefully they have some news. To allow your exhausted staff get some needed rest, two detachments of National Guard troops will be arriving, one is about 5 minutes away and a second convoy from the east in another 5 minutes after that. It will be good to get home and hit the sheets. You are so tired you feel like the walking dead.
Your phone rings. It is the security detail from the train station. Old man Codger, a elderly farmer who lives north east of town, has just shown up at the Rail station, out of breath and terrified. He is rambling about being attacked at his home, and that the only way he could escape is by setting the buildings on fire. You had better send a Deputy to go interview him. It sounds bizarre.
The phone rings again… it is Deputy Boomhauer at the hospital. He sounds quite distraught. Apparently the hospital was overwhelmed with patients overnight, and now he reports the motion detector alarms in the morgue have gone off.
At that second the switch board lights up, and several simultaneous “10-78” calls are received – “officer need assistance!”… What the?????”

This scenario is
1) Meant strictly for play against the AI. Although it one player wants to try playing the Axis/Zombies, please feel free.
2) The scenario is meant to be strictly for fun.
3) Watch you ammo loads. Shoot for the head. You only have the ammo you brought into the fight.
August 12,1944. France. SE of Argentan.
Married platoons of U.S. 5th Armored Division
night out-posts.
France, 1940 - Case Red.

Heavy Tanks of the 4th DCR must smash a hole in the advancing German line - but there are complications.
At Dornot, the U.S. Third Army's XX Corps' first attempt to establish a bridgehead on the Moselle River south of Metz met bloody failure. Two and a half miles south of Dornot the XX Corps' 10 Infantry Regiment is trying once more to establish a permanent bridgehead across the Moselle at Arnaville. Since the first U.S. troops crossed at Arnaville on the night of 8/9 September, the Germans have been launching increasingly vicious counterattacks in an effort to destroy the bridgehead and repeat what happened at Dornot.
This is an Aug 44 meeting engagement between Brit and German mech forces in Belgium. The map is based on a satellite photo of Neubruck just southeast of St. Vith.
Cassino town was destroyed by Allied Airforces on Wednesday, March 15th, along with the abby known as Monte Cassino. "The town was blown assunder and beaten into heaps of rubble, the official British history reported. Yet hundreds of bombs and thousands of shells failed to pound the town to powder, contrary to Allied expectations, nor were the surviving defenders 'rendered comatose', as planned." --The Day of Battle
Normandy - known for its rolling fields, orchards, stud farms and a good glass of cider. Sheltered from the elements which can pound the coastline this is a landscape is carpeted in apple blossom. It is here, at the heart of one of the best designated cider producing areas that you will find the Chateau les Bruyîres, an Empire period residence and 18th century manor house - run by the Wehrmacht. It is your task to put an end to this inappropriate ownership.

Soviet vs. German Meeting Engagement. 60+ turns.
Best played as: H2H (Not recommended for vs. AI play due to mounted infantry.)

In recent weeks, this industrial center has been the scene of increasingly sharp clashes between recon units and regular forces. Both sides have traded jabs over this important airplane fabrication city. Both have moved into the town and then been forced out again. No one seems to be able to hold it. The landing gear assembly plant on the edge of town was occupied by the Red Army a few days ago and then burned and destroyed as the Wehrmacht forced them out. Much of the town lies untouched, but the workers and residents know it is just a matter of time before a major battle rages through the streets of their city…

After another bloody engagement, both sides have backed off. Again, in the still of a Sunday morning under the cover of a pounding rainstorm, both sides push forces forward to gain possession of the city.

No one is sure where the front lines lie. Is the enemy in front of you? Or is he gone?

Push forward, as so many before you have tried, and hold this town once and for all!
This is a CMBB scenario, modelling Plan Yellow in France in May 1940.

October, 1942
In the northern Caucaus, along the Terek river line, the battle has been raging brutally for nearly two months. Germany's 13.Panzer-Division tasked with taking the key junction city of Vladikavkaz (Ordzhonikidze) has been stymied in it's every attempt to breakthrough.

But now, at the end of October a break has been achieved through the first mountain range and panzers are rolling along the valley near Ardon, on a back route to Vladikavkaz.

The Russians, somewhat disorganized, are withdrawing to new positions. A desperate stand is ordered to slow the German advance and buy time to set-up the new defensive positions.

*****************************************

a Couple of weeks ago the Allies have conquered one of the major towns in France.

Now the Germans broke through the American line of defense in the Ardennes and are advancing rapidly towards this town.

Can the Allied commander hold this town?
November 1944, the French 2nd Armored Division is tasked to breach the German fortified line of the Vosges mountains. This battle takes place on the second days of the attack. The different French Task forces are competing with each other in order to be the first to reach the plain of Alsace. The company team Minjonnet (part of the Task Force Massu) blocked close to Voyer in a narrow valley by German remnants of the 708. ID has to bypass quickly this resistance. The French can be sure that their old enemy is not about to ease their action !

This CMBO map is built from a topographical map of the little town of Seville, NE of Melbourne, Australia. My idea was to lauch a Brit brigade (3 btns) across it at a German static defence screening mobile reserves.
Desiliens is an ancient Roman town. The map features the ruins of the town, an aquaduct, and the ruins of a villa on a low central hill.

The eastern side of the map is mostly woods, the west is hills and farms. It is most suitable for an assault on the town, but if the focus is shifted to the ruined villa it would be good for a meeting engagement.

A post on the Main Forum by General The higher the level commander the more often he doesn't get combat and stealth ratings and he does get command and morale ratings.

Failure about the American penchant for backing away from any and all resistance and calling in artillery was funny.
But true.

There are nationality differences within every army in WWII. Here are the nationality traits I have used as a scale and why I feel the way I do. You may well feel differently than I do.

The Americans for instance left faster and returned quicker than anybody. (That's our story and we're sticking to it!) To show this, I often give even the lowest most inexperienced leaders morale and command modifiers. The Americans could also be heard for 100 meters away, or farther, let's face it, quiet we aren't, so I don't often give them stealth bonuses. Rarely do I give them fanaticism.

The Germans were good at everything and I give them the most well rounded ratings across the board. I normally give the Germans fanaticism rating of 25% of all troops. They will hold but not to the death.

The British Normally I give them good stealth ratings, average morale and command bonuses and good combat bonuses. I usually attach a fanatcism rating of 50% of all troops to British units. British troops have a reputation for holding onto whatever ground they get.

The British are much maligned in WWII after May 1944. Especially by US authors. Yes, that's the time period after the invasion of Normandy. The US view, has been for decades, was that the British didn't want to fight. The polite term was that they were, "war weary". The truth of matter is that England was having manpower shortages and could not replace many of the combat casualties suffered late in the war. Especially to the infantry.

This must be taken into consideration when doing the British units. The later it goes into the war, the less likely British units are going to be to take casualties. They simply couldn't be replaced.

The Canadians are very tough troops and the equal of the Germans in almost all respects when it comes to training and leadership. I treat them the same as the German leaders, with the sole exception of not giving them command bonuses quite as freely. I also try to put a fanaticism rating of 25% of all troops.


The UK... you know who these guys are; Australian, Polish, New Zealand and Indian. If I forget anybody remind me....

These guys all performed about the same. About as well as any soldiers ever have. Solid units that will fight hard. I give them average leadership ratings at all levels and
a fanaticism rating of 25% for all troops.

The Soviets are by far and away the hardest to do. My depictions of Red Army forces are very highly dependant on the action I am trying to model.

Until late 1942 I include a company/bn commander that I make a commissar. He is elite with a 2 rating for both command and morale. It was his job to motivate the troops to fight! In my scenarios he will.

In defensive positions the Soviets should probably aways have a fanaticism rating of 25% of all troops. The rest of the time it should be 50% of all troops. This is only in a defensive position. The longer they have been in it the more fanatic they become about staying in it.

As the war progresses the Soviet leaders progress with it. By the end of the war the Soviet small unit leaders were very good.

Soviet reconnaissance forces were some of the best, if not the best, in the world.

Soviet units were masters of blending into the terrain and I often give all Soviet leaders a stealth bonus of at least one of not two.

The Italians had good soldiers but not good leaders. The higher up the leaders the worse they get. So, the platoon leaders are the ones that get the lions share of leadership bonuses.

The Italian soldiers are the only exception I make to a leaders experience level being the highest experience rating for a platoon. The Italian leaders can be less experienced than their men.

I will often give the Italians a fanaticism rating of 50% for regular or better troops. The Italians would stand and fight.

The Hungarians were not overly enthusiastic about fighting. They are generally poor quality. I rarely give them fanaticism. They often left their positions without provocation and having no apparent need for orders to withdraw.

Poor quality leaders and poor quality troops. Veteran experience levels are high for when I use Hungarian troops.

The Romanians were better quality troops than either the Hungarians or the Italians, and their mountain troops were excellent. Good leaders there and just a bit above average in all other units. Fanaticism given at 25% for regular or better troops.

The Finns are excellent fighters with excellent leaders UNTIL June 1944 and later. They fought poorly in the later part of the campaign. They fought brilliantly in the Winter War and in 1941.

Finns get a fanaticism rating of 50% of all troops until January of 1942. Then they get a rating of 25% for regular or better troops.

This is how I view the CM world of nationalities in WWII.

I hope this helps you in making your own scenarios.

Good Hunting.

The French have a widely varied experience in the war depending on time period.

In 1940 the French were poorly lead. They fough okay but resembled the Italians. I give them poor troop quality and poor leadership bonuses generally from 1940.

In 1941 through 1945 the French fought well and were good solid combat units. The 2nd Armored Division was an excellent unit. I give them regular leadership bonuses.

The Vichy French I consider the same as Free French in capability.

Before 1941 I rarely give the French a fanaticism rating. After 1941 I give them a 25% of all troops rating.

I hope these will help you. This is a highly subjective topic and these are just my views.

I have them for a reason. I have read extensively, and this is what I feel about the overall nature of the armies involved.

Naturally any given situation can be an exception.

I hope this will give you an idea of the differences involved in fighting in each nations armed forces.

Good Hunting.

Nice posts Smile Am gonner try and use these guidelines in scenarios to come!

To backup the information on infantry shortages:

In reseaching our losses, it seems the butchers bill comes to:
300 000-400 000 KIA
~300 000 WIA

And around 135 000 taken by wars end in Europe, at least 100 000 taken in the fall of Singapore ... then add on all those taken in the other campaigns...

To top that off, the country was still suffering from its 703,000 KIA and 1,663,000 WIA from the Great War.

Bearing in mind out small army (Around 1,650,000 men after Dunkirk and just under 3 million men i have read by 1945) was spread across much of Africa, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, Italy, Burma and India in 1944, then followed by France, Belgium, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Greece and then much larger portions of SE Asia by wars end.

When reading Field Marshall Silms he mentions during the later parts of the campaign, that the Divisions were made up more and more of troopers form the Indian Army. I guess it was more equel before hand, by this stage of the war battalions were being amalgamated and it would seem from Silms comments that Indian troopers were taking the place of British reinforcements due to slow flow of reinforcements from home.
Should also note that large chunks of the Army were rotated back into India form the front flowing with the supply situation and many were involved in the logistical effort of the theater.

As for ETO, iirc units were being amalgamated even during the Normandy campaign due to losses.
From my readings on the Battlefront forums, some stated that losses were far higher in Normandy then command had predicted!

Ha ha ha!
The Brits took on the cream of the Reich around Caen after D-Day :)
1st SS , 2nd SS, 9th SS, 10th SS, 12th SS, 21st Pz, Pz Lehr..

In his classic book 'The Struggle for Europe", Chester Wilmot quotes the texts of many official documents, including this one by Monty - "By constantly pressuring the Germans around Caen in the east we hope to draw the bulk of the German Army onto us, leaving the Americans in the west free to expand and break out"
And it worked to perfection!

The only thing that worked for that operation was tying up the Germans.
The Brits lost enormous amounts of men and tanks.
The germans too but they could not replace their losses.
It was the only postive thing for an operation that would have been cancelled otherwise.......

POS did some testing that got me to thinking about the gross quality differences I see in many scenarios.

TESTING FOR HIT PROBABILITIES:

Just ran a test of 2xPz IV L48 vs 2xT34 M43Late

Distance on clear map 490m and 502m

Vet Soviet vs Reg Germ were equal in hit probability between 56 and 58 percent for all 4 tanks.

Vet Germ in same test ran 5-7 points higher the the Soviet Vet

If both sides are veteran, the German had a considerable to hit advantage of 5-8 points.

Green Germ and Reg Soviet were virtually identical in hit probability - German was 48 and 49 percent vs Soviet 51 and 52 percent.

Concluded that Soviet Veterans are not any better than German regulars in terms of hit probabilities.

Concluded that Soviet Regulars are only slightly better than German Greens.

The closest matchup I found was Green Germans versus Regular Soviets. Don't hold your breath until you see something like that! Big Grin

"By constantly pressuring the Germans around Caen in the east we hope to draw the bulk of the German Army onto us, leaving the Americans in the west free to expand and break out"

One of the greatest myth about "monty" ever.

Monty failed taking Cean and breaking out of Normandy, harsh but true.

There are no notes what so ever and no mention anywhere about the Brittish attacks in the Cean area beeing meant to tie down german troops to give the US army a chance of breaking out in the western part of the area.

All those claims were made after the breakout. To claim anything else is wrong.

A lot can be said about monty and one thing is he NEVER won a battle without having a huge numerical advantage.

This can be said about allmost all allied commanders during the war. The German army was superior in training, doctrine and equipment.

However Monty was the right man at the right place at the right time in North Africa, that is something no one can take away from him!

As said by a german during interogation after the war: "We ran out of bullets, you didnt run out of tanks."

There will be a difference of opinion about what happened in NWE for the rest of our days I'm sure.

The facts remain that ENGLAND couldn't replace her losses first. England was the first nation to run out of manpower.

However you want to portray the fighting ability of the ENGLISH Troops in the field, you cannot deny, that, without that simple fact things would have been different. I brought this up not as a point of contention here among us, but as a historical fact. Something that as a scenario designer you should keep in mind.

Good Hunting.

Am sorry Gen. Failure but you are eating up all the myths.

The truth is, he was spot on, the American Generals didnt like him because he was full of himself, he killed his rep after the war trying to defend himself and the final result is the Americans slag off one of the best Generals in the western world at the time.

example of evidence that the plan had been from the start to allow the Americans to brake out and for the British and Canadians to tie down the German troops is right here:

Quote:
July 15th,

memo to O'Connor, VIII Corp

"1. Object of this operation.

To engage the German armour in battle and 'write it down' to such an extent that it is of no further value to the Germans as a basis of the battle. To gain a good bridgehead over the Orne through Caen and thus to improve our positions on the eastern flank. Generally to destroy German equipment and personnel.

2. Effect of this operation on the Allied policy.

We require the whole of the Cherbourg and Brittany peninsulas. A victory on the eastern flank will help us to gain what we want on the western. But the eastern flank is a bastion on which the whole future of the campaing in North-West Europe depend; it must remain a firm bastion; if it were to become unstable, the operations on the western flank would cease.
Therefore, while taking advantage of every opportunity to destroy the enemy, we must be very careful to maintain our own balance and ensure a firm base."




Then to counter he only used overwleming number BS ....
Battle of Alam el Halfa
6 German and Italian divisions vs the 8th Armies 4.

The 2nd Battle of El Alamein.

10 Divisions of the 8th Army vs 11 Division of the German and Italian army. (one should know that most of the less then mobile brigades had been pulled back into Egypt so that only the more mobile ones were on the line, this had been done well before this battle)

Of all of them it was mostly XXX Corp which made the attacks eating into the German defence.

So how did we win the battle, well retraining the entire army. Training them in combind arms, mine clearing etc

Massive planning and co-operation was undertaken between the Army commanders and Army staff, the Corp commanders and staff and the division staff and commanders to ensure the plan would work.
Something which had been lacking before his arrival.

After the terrible material and ammo losses at Gazala and the material and ammo used up in the 2 battles before this, we had to build up our supplies to ensure we could win and then carry on going.

Before the first rounds were fired, massive intel operations were made to locate all German and Italian batteries via sight and sound technquies and via aerial recon.

New arty techniques and cooperation methods put in so that when the first rounds were fired, all 882 rounds landed at the same time.
Techniques, that could bring the medium guns to bare and blow the crap out of any 1200x400 square needed in a very short time ... something which wasnt possible before hand.

The fact that the Navy and Airforce chopped the Italian navy slashed the German and Italian army logistics is also over looked ....


So go, keep bad mouthing Monty ... but next time come with evidence and not myth..........




Oh and if we want to start crying about the fact the British didnt take Caen on the first day or blah blah blah
Heres some facts, the Americans didnt take all there D-Day objectives, neither did anyone else.

The phase lines and times objectives were to be taken were guidelines not set in stone.


Quote:
The German army was superior in training, doctrine and equipment.

Would this be the dozens of static divisions on the western front, the battalions of troops who were made up by men still suffering or recovering from terrible wounds, troops conscripted from other nations.
Even several divisions which were made up of very poor troops.

equipment such as a rifle which was in some sences, not superior to the Enfield. Arty which was, from my reading, mostly outmatched.
Tanks, other then the big cats and some of the more heavily armoured tank hunters which were in all comparisons much like the Allied tanks and in some cases poorer.
If we look at the beginning of the war, they were roaming around in MK I and IIs, and for the next 2 years were mostly using Czech tanks....

etc etc etc etc etc etc

Enigma,

writing a reply o your latest post.
(about how your "myth" are the oposite of my "myth".)

evidence, as you say is on it's way...

Will try to keep it to facts and actuall points in my original posting.

Nevr understood why the halo of monty is so sacred for your britts, he wasn't a poor general, only not as flawless and excellent as some historians and the myth makes him.

Prepares the wacking stick for when the name Patton gets brought up!!!

He sacred because he was one of our finiest generals and because everyone gives him a hard time for doing his job ... because they didnt like him coz he ran his mouth and because they didnt understand his thinking.
Indirect Appraoch.


Am more inclined to think that Silm is a better general though.
After reading his memoirs, i would have killed to get hold of them ... i nearly did after i think it was 6-8 months trying to get hold of a copy to be cut down everytime i nearly got it.
His armies exploits, logistically, tactically, stategically and how they overcame bascally everything is amazing!

Ive been doing quite a bit of reading on the Italians recently.


East Africa, with there main force made up of "natives", out of supply and cut off from Italy.
It appears that there forces disintergrated upon contact with British and CW forces.
Desertion was high and it seems that portions of the country was given up because of the believe British forces were larger then were actually there.

Although, the Italian troops proper were mostly vets from years of fighting in Ethiopia and other portions of East Africa and they had some early successes.

I have notes at home which am going to post in the East African thread and there are notes which i have already posted regarding how i believe they should be represented in game.


North Africa. It seems during the early portions of the Western Desert Campaign, i.e Operation Compass that the majority of the Italian infantry were Green, with a few regulars and veterans.

From my reading I get the impression that the majority of the Italian infantry had little will to fight, even the top brass. They were very rigid and stuck to the roads mostly, although they did set up several camps in the middle of the desert.

It appears that the troops who were ones who were most likely to stand to the last were the men who manned the arty and the At guns. Although there are several times during this early campaign were the Italian infantry held out until there position was hopeless.

In regards to officers, there seems that again during this early portion of the campaign that there officers and infantry were in 2 different worlds.
Better food, accommodation and uniforms for officers in comparison to the NCOs and other ranks.

There armoured units were spread out across the infantry division but I recall there was a fully fledged armour brigade in the desert in these early stages.
However brave there actions, there skill was limited from the accounts of there use.

So take what you will from that and see how you can interpret that into Combat Mission Big Grin

I think these guys would be better described as Empire and Commonwealth troops. The UK stands for United Kingdom, as in "The United Kingdom of Great Britain". Hate to argue semantics but feel it's worth a note Big Grin
