Minor Victory (1-3 Objectives destroyed)

British Officer: A good show, all things considered. Most of our cannons remain operational, and Jerry will have to step gingerly as he advances. But advance he will! And when he arrives here tomorrow, we shall bloody his nose yet again. Ready yourselves!

Day 2

Introduction

The German primary force approaches from the north and joins their comrades near the Escaut river.
They now aim to break through the Allied defensive positions, arrest control of the river and it's [sic] strategic value, and use it to push further in France.

 If the Allies are unable to hold the German offensive here, there will be little to prevent the march to Paris.

Victory on Day 1
One of the following quotes is played at random.

German Officer: With our advance unopposed, we have arrived at the front with our forces intact. The enemy will not leave willingly. We will attack sector by sector, securing one before moving on to the next. Pursue them relentlessly.

German Officer: We only took minor losses from what was left of the artillery. With our forces mostly intact we now make ready for the main attack. The assault will be precise and determined. Secure the field sector by sector.

Defeat on Day 1

German Officer: They have bruised our pride and our strength, but we remain determined. Our failure to destroy all the Allied artillery has slowed our progress. But we must continue the attack. Advance sector by sector. Overwhelm their defenses and secure your areas.

German Officer:

German Officer: Excellent. The enemy has fled the field, abandoning both wounded and equipment. The road to Paris lies open. But we are not done. We will pursue them deep into France. Only there will we declare victory.

German Officer: A victory at a price, is a victory nonetheless. Their defenses have collapsed and we have forced the Allies into retreat. But a wounded animal can still bite. We must pursue and destroy what remains. Then we shall take Paris.

Defeat

One of the following quotes is played at random.

German Officer: A disappointing loss. The enemy has absorbed our attack, taking our momentum and stalling the front. They're now moving to reposition deeper into their lines, while we do nothing but watch.

German Officer: It's an embarrassment. The Allied defenses were too strong, and our attack failed. With our advance slowed, the Allies now have time to fall back and regroup. We lost both good comrades and our honor today. It will not happen again.

British Officer:

Minor Victory on Day 1

British Officer: We brought our surviving guns to bear on Jerry. Our intermittent fire has thinned their ranks and sapped their strength. Now they face our defense. Hold your sectors until forced to fall back. Then regroup and face them again. Be confident and carry the day.

Defeat on Day 1

British Officer: With only a few of our guns intact, our shelling served only as harassment to the German advance. We will defend in depth against their assault. Hold your sectors. Yield only when they encircle you, then fall back and regroup. Make them pay a steep price for every yard gained!

Victory

One of the following quotes is played at random.

British Officer: An astounding victory! Your admirable courage and staunch determination has won us the day. While the Germans lick their wounds, we will fall back into a more favorable position further into France. There we will face them on our terms, and be victorious once again.

British Officer: They had the initiative, but neglected to factor in our grit. The victory has not stopped the German march, but it has given us an opportunity to take up a more favorable position deeper inside France. Here we will fight them on our terms.

Defeat

British Officer: We may have been pushed off the field, but the German victory cost them dearly. Command has ordered us to rally our remaining forces for withdrawal, deeper into French territory. We can still beat them.

Defeat on Day 2
One of the following quotes is played at random.

German Officer: The Allies have slowed our advance, but now we have them on the run. Some defenders remain at the doorstep to Paris. They must be smashed before we can achieve victory. France will be ours. Assault their lines, break through, and capture their rear.

German Officer: The Allies have proven to be difficult adversaries. Our delayed advance has given them time to regroup and dig in. Find a weak spot in the defense. Focus your attack there until you've reached their rear. We shall show them the meaning of blitzkrieg.

Victory

German Officer: This great victory shall go down in history. You smashed through their defenses and forced an Allied withdrawal from continental Europe. The German flag flies over Paris. Your peerless efforts made it possible.

Defeat

German Officer: The enemy has denied us victory in France. But the might of our armed forces remain unrivalled and our determination unrelenting. More divisions will follow and France will fall eventually. Total victory in Europe will still be ours.

Victory on Day 2
One of the following quotes is played at random.

British Officer: Our resounding success against the Germans has bought us ample time to form a line of defense. They will throw everything they have at us, but we will meet their challenge. The way to Paris is shut, and will remain so. Let Jerry beat himself bloody against our resolve.

British Officer: Our resilience has shown our enemy that we are not to be trifled with. We now prepare a last line of defense before Paris. Do not allow them to breakthrough, and if possible, push them back. Today we will crush Jerry's hope of a swift victory and ensure that France remains free.

Defeat on Day 2

British Officer: The enemy has shadowed us into French Territory, no doubt waiting for the optimum time to strike. Our orders are to join a defensive line and protect Paris. Guard the rear and if possible push them back with all your might. God willing a free Europe will last the day.

Victory

British Officer: You have achieved the impossible. While our depleted numbers cannot hold onto France, the ground you held today has given your fellow soldiers the time needed for a final evacuation. In the face of opposition know your bravery shines as a beacon of hope to everyone facing oppression across Europe.

Defeat

British Officer: They've shattered our lines, the Battle for France is lost, but the battle for Europe has just begun. This war will continue, and though beaten today we shall return to the field, wiser and stronger. Having seen your courage, I'm confident that ultimate victory will be ours.
