One of the responsibilities of the Airborne troops was the seizure of several key bridges following the D-Day drop. One of these bridges was at Chef-du-Pont. Gavin organized a pickup force to take care of this bridge himself. With elements of the 507th split into two groups, he marched on Chef-du-Pont by closely parallel but different routes.

2019-03-23(D) David Garvin vs David Alexander German winGreat finish, but I held on to win. Great game on David's Part.
2019-01-29(A) O Ramaille vs German winFirst play on full ASL. The US paratroopers led by Gavin decided to run to the bridge under cover of the hill while Ostberg tried to fix German attention in the town. Ostberg was kept at bay while several German units slid South to protect the way to the bridge. Ferocious fight occurred with paratroopers going fanatic but fell under MG fire. Ostberg managed to cross the town and ran efficiently to the bridge with some troops. Gavin was killed and Maloney could not prevent the German to reinforce the bridge. A German victory by a hair's breadth.
