Vierville - Combat Mission: Battle For Normandy
Vierville is a village surrounded by hedgerows, tree lines some small farms and a high ground northwest of the village. It’s 0900h in the morning and the weather is clear. After a long night fighting 506 PIR is starting to get organised and the link-up with 4th US INF DIV (from exit 1 and 2 Utah Beach) can be not far away.
Occupy Vierville as soon as possible to prevent further organised delaying actions towards Carentan
Bravo company, 1st Bn of 506 PIR supported by Stuarts of the 745th Tank Bn have reached the outskirts of Vierville during the breakout of Utah Beach.
Elements of 919 (GE) Infantry regiment conduct delaying actions towards Carentan. Probably a company(-) will be present in the area of Vierville.
2nd and 3rd Platoon will secure the flanks of Vierville. 1st Platoons main objective is to take the crossroad in the centre of Vierville. 2nd Platoons main objective is the Manor south from Vierville and 3rd platoons objective is the high ground nortwest of Vierville. Finaly we need to take the barncomplex of Vierville. We can expect regular infanry supported by some Stuarts soon when the road between St Marie du Mont and Vierville is cleared.
