St Giles, West of St Lo: July 25th, 1944. (Scenario Size: Brigade. Head to Head or United States Human vs AI) The US VII Corps Commander, General Collins, was disappointed with the slow advance on the first day of Operation Cobra. He decided that on the second day he would commit his mechanized forces based on his assessment that the main German defences were in a shambles. Combat Command A of the US 2nd Armored Division was tasked with heading south along the eastern side of the penetration to provide flank cover for Cobra. As luck would have it, the Combat Command struck the German Corps boundary and plunged ahead in spectacular fashion. E*/2-66 Company used the new 76mm armed Shermans - M4A1(76) for the first time in Normandy.

Good challenge for the Allies. Hedgerows limit most movement to the roads and the Allies have a long way to go.
