Operation EPSOM
By Rik

Force-Outline:
Era: Late WW2.
Forcetype: Dismounted.
Vehicles: Willys Jeep.
Attachment: Churchill Tank.

Situation-Outline:
Operation Start: 07:30, 26/06/1944.
Current Weather: Light fog, overcast.
Future Weather: Light fog, overcast.
Map: Crossroads Bocage, in TWC WW2.

Conflict Overview:
Following the start of Operation OVERLORD, almost 2 million Allied soldiers have been shipped across the Channel to liberate France. American forces have cut off the Cotentin peninsula in the west, and will capture Cherbourg soon. The objective of British/Canadian forces is the city of Caen, a large city just inland from the landing grounds. The initial attempt at liberating the city was Operation PERCH, launched immediately after the landings. The operation was suspended after a week of hard fighting and large amounts of German counterattacks. 

Command is now launching Operation EPSOM to outflank Caen from the southwest and break German defences. 

Recent Events:
British forces are advancing through the dense bocage. German troops are tenaciously defending the hedgerows and few roads that allow for tank movement. As such, British tanks are suffering an increasing amount of ambushes. A local crossroads town has to be secured for advancing forces, but German troops have built up defences around the area. Furthermore, while the fog maintains air support will be unavailable. Medium altitude bombers have been irregularly hitting Caen and surrounding positions, but are taking large amounts of flak from an area between La Croix and La Ligne. 

Objectives:
1. Secure La Croix.
2. Find and Destroy the AA.
3. Secure La Ligne.

Situation OPFOR:
Weapons: Kar98k, G43, MP40, MG42, MG34, Panzerfaust, Panzerschreck.
Uniform: Field grey, stahlhelm.
Vehicles: Opel Blitz, Kubelwagen, SdKfz 222, SdKfz 251, Panzer IV, Panzer V.

Situation Civilians:
Population: Civilians are likely to stay far away from German military installations, and be in their homes.
Allegiance: Eagerly awaiting liberation from the German occupation.

Situation BLUFOR:
Weapons: Lee-Enfield No4 Mk1, Bren LMG, Sten SMG, Vickers MG, 6-pdr. 
Uniform: P37, Mk2 Helmet. 
Vehicles: Churchill MkIII, Universal Carrier, M4A3 Sherman, M4A4 Sherman, M3 Half-Track, Austin K5.
