Lovely job, SiphonX! :thumb:

Lt Runcie. to whom you make reference, was almost certainly a future Archbishop of Canterbury! :P

Your interest in the immediate subject matter is what helps the intricate design of such maps to become immersive. :thumb:

The fighting in that very cold winter of 1944 to take (or defend) the Siegfried Line, extended well beyond the Ardennes and is often overlooked It must have been hell for both sides.

Indeed. Apparently, he earned the nickname of "Killer Runcie" during his service and was decorated in part also for his actions in this battle. Colvin refers to some public controversy around him happening later; I didn't look into this, but it sounded like being touted a "killer" is ok for a war hero but not so much for an Archbishop. Maybe you have some info on this?

According to Colvin that controversy was silly, Runcie was in fact rather timid. His beef with him is that Runcie's indecisivness in the situation could have costed a lot of lives if Sgt. Alldred wouldn't have taken the initiative to flank the 88. However, according to Colvin, Alldred critized the higher echolons after the battle and as a result "his" medal was instead awarded to Runcie which the latter never acknowledged.
