    WI the weather of the 6th had been bad enough that Eisenhower said "we don't go!".

    Can the adrenaline and fighting morale of troops wound up to such an unexpended tension be restored in time for the next opportunity on July 12th, after the deflation of being disembarked and trucked back to their barracks & staging areas and sealed in for another month? Let alone the risk of the call-off reaching the Germans.

    Or would they rotate units eg send in the British 1st Airborne instead of the 6th, the "Triple Dimes" instead of the US 82nd etc?

      Can't factor in the weather, that is out of our hands, but the human factor can be.
