WW2: Memoir '44 D-Day Landings Battle - Sword Beach

In remembrance of D-Day I wargamed out the Sword Beach scenario for Memoir '44. I commanded the British while leaving the AI to defend. It was a massacre for the British. Despite my best efforts of "chin chin" I am afraid that I failed my King and Country, at least if were British. :) Anyhow. it was a fun and quick game with heavy losses on both sides. On occasion I thought "Yes! We are going to get off this bloody beach and get some VP!" However it there was not much VP the Germans were willing to give tonight.

The action began on the British left and cascaded across the battlefield. 
Initial deployment with the heroes of the Empire wading ashore.

Final outcome VP Germans 5 British 2.
