|In this scenario, US Cavalry (brown icons) is caught off guard along the 25 km front held by the 7th US Armored Division. In this screenshot, fallschirmjägers are swarming north along the road network in the town of Ospel (Holland).
|The situation is not less ominous in the village of Meijel, with German infantry (grey icons) moving towards the B and C Troops of the 87th Cavalry Squadron.
|A feeble delaying party of the D Troop near Hooge Brug. There is a bridge there that can support motorized units, so I will be looking at this specific are with much attention.
|By mid day, the fallschirmjägers at Ospel have forced the US Cavalry to withdraw. Fortunately, CCA (7th US Armored Division, green icons west of the German force) are on their way to the village's center.
|CCR ( (7th US Armored Division, green icons) is making good progress towards Meijel.
|The situation at Meijel is becoming desperate: Note how the US Cavalry is getting surrounded by German units (grey icons).
|It is only after the sun goes down that the tides of battle change. CCA and other US assorted units are taking good care of the German fallschirmjägers at Ospel.
|Stopping the Germans at Meijel took more effort because CCR took a long time to move in.
