Veers & GS:
I suspect the encirclement at Bayeux won't hold; he's got a couple of healthy units inside the pocket, but making him fight his way out, instead of rebuilding his line, will do for now.
Yes, I plan to send the BR 8ArmBde and 50ID and the US 1ID, 2ID and 2ArmDiv S to Balleroy and Cerisy, then on to St. Lo with other reinforcements coming later. The 29ID, 101AB and 90ID will connect at Caretan to protect the main effort's right flank, and the BR 49ID and 7ArmDiv connect the CA 3ID right with the BR 50ID left, protecting the main effort's left flank. The BR 3ID and 51ID will cross the Orne at Pegasus Bridge and try to take Caen from the NE. The BR 6AB and commandos will try to clear the coast of those pesky shore batteries, to let the naval units get into support range.
Yes, in turn 4 I started the 82nd AB across the river, and plan to send the arriving 9ID in that direction to cut off Caretan from the W.
Yes, I'm planning to use my recon units to exploit gaps in his lines; at Bayeux I used them, perhaps unwisely, to encircle the defenders.
