Objectives: Objective 1: As our first objective of the day we are to move north of our position and take out the enemy fortified position around the farms at La Durandiere. It is an important task for us since we are not able to push north, due to the PAK 40 covering towards the road. Objective 2: We have intel of a German trench line around 500 meters northeast of La Durandiere. We are to push up and clear out the entire trench line. It is the last major fortified position between us and the city of Neaville. Objective 3: As the last assignment we are to clear out the city of Neaville. We have limited information’s on the city, but some of them show fortified positions on each road leading into town. There is a military compound in the northwest part of town. If we should reach the town before the remaining of the ally forces, we are to set up defensives and wait for their arrival. The key locations in the town will be the church and the crossroads in the center of town. There might be German supplies that can aid us in the defense at the military base.
