A planning meeting....

General Von Tiddenheim commander german Army Group C, had been summoned to Army Group A headquarters for a meeting to review the invasion plans (the venue a small château to the north-west of Paris.)
 
Up early in the morning, he waited impatiently for his staff car...
The car finally arrived, a rebuke was given to the driver for being late ...
After a short journey to the railway station, von Tiddenheim boarded his train - the general put his feet up and sat back enjoying the view from the window .....
On the journey he mulled over his approach to the meeting it would give him an opportunity to possibly request some additional units - some of the new Panzer III's would be nice - but he didn't give much for his chances of getting them - what he really wanted was some airborne troops - he would have to argue his case well to get them ... he also wanted to ensure he got the latest intelligence reports....
