Thoughts on Turn 7

The Germans had to stop running scared from the US 2nd Armored, so the 9th Panzer coordinated a good attack and eliminated a unit. The 116th Panzer also did a great job of enlisting the Führerbegleitbrigade to lay siege in Hotton and destroy two 84th infantry units and the 3rd Armored.

Good turn for the Germans.
