The Germans got some extra defences ready, represented by some extra troops, including a machinegun and mortar position and some extra coastal defences represented by the big guns and a small mine field.
Clear weather gives the Allies a chance to cover there advances by naval artillery (Destroyer) and a year more preperation time represented by a a mix off troops, including Canadian Engineers (British Engeneers = Commonwealth) badge, Australians and New Zealand Infantry and a Polish detachment off Infantry and Armor.
When 'Airrules' are used Allied got Total Air Suppriority !
