Still enjoying the WW2 romp but these Germans are far from being efficient. Is Rob going easy on the players to help the game along or is the advice from the adventure itself which is making the Germans so lax?

I am being a bit nice, but the German's aren't really expecting too much hassle nor are on high alert based on how well they did in pushing the British out of France to Dunkirk.

In Mesegen, if they stayed, then the German activity would be picking up, but as the front line had mostly passed by there already, there was only minimal strategic value to staying, so they did not overly harass civilians (whcih the PCs easily pass as).

In Nieuport however, The Germans are mostly celebratory in their recent push and still seeing civilians evacuating, so they don't think too much on those (plus this is where a good chunk of Vichy French were from).

In an all-out brawl though, the PCs wouldn't survive, so I've been allowing the new recruit Germans to do the bulk of the patrols to give the PCs a fair chance. Now that the recruits messed up and a sub was blown up, the patrols will be getting more serious and suspicious.
