--It had nice tall smokestacks that the Germans skillfully used for arty observation. It was deeply defended and the Allies never made a real push on it until early July. In the end, resistance was not as great there as expected, but by early July, the German line of resistance was growing increasingly thin.
By the way Merville is a tough nut to crack (somewhat ahistorical in this regard), but it's not impossible. The AB boys have a distinct morale advantage here. Ever think to use a couple howitzers in support?
