Round 2


The Allies were poised to strike at St Lo and Caen again, but needed to recapture Carentan as it is a vital supply terminal between Omaha and Utah beaches.

With renewed vigour, the British forces struck hard on the east flank capturing many important territories including Caen. The US also captured St Lo but lost ground at Le Haye de Puits and Omaha Beach! Their forces in St Lo were now cutoff and would be facing a desperate battle to hold onto their precious gain.
