oa 74 Mesnil-Patry Help

Town #1 in the north, is Putot-en-Bessin and you'll need to seize it. The enemy's resistance is rather light, but keep in mind that once you complete the mission, the enemy will send counter-attacks, which again, are rather small, and only trying to lure you into it's artillery range, which is able to reach the outskirts of the town.

Town #2 in the east, is Bretteville-l'Orgueilleuse and already in your possession at the start, but the enemy is launching a direct counter-attack, hoping to regain their positions. This attack is somewhat heavier, but nothing you can't handle. Here, you don't have to worry about enemy artillery, however, take caution for mines, just below the town. After the counter-attack, the following mission will be to seize the next town.

Town #3 almost south, is Norrey-en-Bessin. There's quite a few troops, but hardly armor. You should have enough units to overwhelm them.

Then town #4 is Le Mesnil-Patry and the actual aim to win this game, although historically this only partly happened. The Canadian Army received a deadly German punch there and this is also what awaits when you approach the town going from #3 to #4. Be prepared for that!

The farm region seems not that hard defended, but when some enemy squads die, they will spawn until you reach a specific area, that is. Same for the area between #1 and #4. When following the historical events, I have tried to push the player into going from #2 to #3 and next to #4 and therefor made it very hard to go from #1 to #4.  So, it's not even necessary to win this game. It is possible, but you will need so much time to clear the mines and get into the positions that stop the spawns. Easiest way to win this map is going from #2 to #3 and next to #4 and face the final strike.
