I'm playing a campaign in France where I'm the American forces verse the Germans. I've only got to Spear Hill and I'm getting mauled. It seems that the Germans know exactly where my troops are whether hidding behind a hill or in the forest, and I can't seem to see the Germans even when they are firing from plan site right in front of me. I'm I missing something or is the fog of war siding with the computer?

Any strategic advice would be greatly appreciated.

You don't usually see the enemy till you get close but your men should fire were the shots are coming from. any of your squads that are under Heavy artillery probably will be ducking for a long time. If your attacking and you have no tanks it is very tough.

Once I was playing and I only had infantry, I divided my force and attacked both flanks after very long amounts of time my men were just sitting around in a stalemate.

If you do have tanks try to kill their guns or tanks and rush the flag.

To answer the other question: no, the enemy hasn't better visibility than your men have. They simply have an advantage of position when they are defending. Keep in mind that some battles also can't be won at all as the amount of troops (Points) usually isn't the same for both armies. (Don't worry, some battles are piece of cake, it happens in both directions.)
