    I made it!! I wasn't certain at first, but I did pull my crew through to the objective. Definitely required some crirtical thinking. Looking forward to the next installment. :thumb:

      I made it too. I actually thought this one was easier than the first two. In my mind if you look at the fields of fire for the bunkers, there is only one option.

            I enjoyed this one a bit more than the first two, as I got to pick how to attack, and the decision was meaningful. Not bad.

            I picked the right one the first time.

              Did anyone get to a part where the sandbags or lack of made a difference?

                Overall I think the series has been great. Normandy has always been shown from the infantry perspective. Seeing it from the tanker's perspective has been refreshing. Got nailed twice in a row though.:chair:

                BTW, does anyone know of any Normandy invasion movies that are from a tanker's perspective?

                  The closest thing I can recall was a History Channel show about the Sherman that used archival footage and modern reenactors.

                    we learn as we live. And although I got killed twice in the firts one, I must have got a 'touch' for the game because I passed the Ike issues battle without mistakes... (feeling satisfyed).


                    wouldnt you love a simislar interactive gave here on Armcahir for subscribers, and moderators ect, and have somekind of interactive game that involves lots of people, and higher rankin officers (I'm not sure how to grade the players, a mil spec iq test?).
                    With officers making officer decisions, ie. Where do I put this platoon, what about my mortars???
                    Meanwhile according to their orders, the privates, corporals, sergeants, and first leftenants make their life or death decisions and try to live to see another day, and with any luck take out some of the opposition. Needless to say battlefield comissions follow.
                    Am I totally out of my depth suggesting such a game?
                    Programming never was my strong points, but If it took off, people outside Armchair mag could become privates for a trial, and I they like it they could pay a nominal fee to participate...
                    It could be the big time interactive wargame on the net!
                    Please tell me If you think Im rambling about something Impossible.

                        This is a BIG idea and it is interesting. We will discuss how such a thing could be done... it will take quite some time I think. But good thinking! :thumb:

                              These are great, almost as good as the CDGs, in my opinion. They require some critical thinking skills, and I know that I try to limit the time allowed to make a decision, just as it would be in an actual attack. This is one of the sections of the magazine that I really look forward to.
