Great looking map! ... fields look very realistic.
You are a very talented map maker. Thanks for all your efforts!
Historically correct also ... definitely deserves a five star rating (out of a possible five)

Minimum range for 81mm/3 inch mortar is 450m. It is no longer easy to take out an AT gun, and it typically takes a concentrated, sustained barrage. You can't count on one mortar to do the trick, but it's possible. Shell flight time is 5-7 seconds--a more realistic approach to mortar behavior. In this example, a command team is in range of the three mortar teams.

a second demo round

Looking good.

I played this campaign years ago with a buddy. It was probably the most exciting of them all.

We played dual campaigns over a LAN. What became apparent after a while is that both of us were finding the Allies a struggle, and this got worse the further into the campaign we went. Neither of us got even half way across the campaign map. Our Allied battlegroups were looking very depleted, and the reserves had all been used up. At the same time, the Axis side had reinforcement battlegroups entering the map on a regular basis.

Perhaps the campaign had been designed more for a player vs AI situation, than for two human opponents, and the German reserves were to compensate for the high AI attrition. It was certainly brutal for both our Allied armies on the attack against a human opponent, and after a long while most battlegroups were reduced to tatters.

Is this new mod going to be different? More balanced for head 2 head play?

P.S. I do recall that both of us reached a benchmark when we were able to finally destroy each other's German heavy tank groups (abtielungs??) in a series of cataclysmic battles. My friend's heavy tanks had managed to actually punch through to the coast up north, but I finally wrecked his Tigers with a combination of M10's and Fireflies over two epic battles. Tense!

Hi Concord. GJS.44 is most certainly designed for H2H play and the descussion as to whether it balanced or not has been brought up many times in the forums of various different websites. The general consensus i believe is that although immediately challenging as the allied player. The huge numerical superiority of the allies (with the ability to reinforce each group once) and their strategic advantages (naval and air support, and the ability to see all axis battlegroups on the strategic map after a certain date) combine to even out the apparent discrepancy in force strength . Allies will indeed be hard pressed to fight the german heavy groups head on but must win by exploiting gaps in the german front line on the strat map and cutting the supply links to the axis BGs.

How many days into the campaign did you and your friend get ? Its a very long campaign.

I ususally find by day 22 or so that the german battle groups start to severely lack in man power and equipment whereas the Allies are still going strong.

I believe that upon playing the GC through to its conclusion, in order to have a real chance to win the campaign, the Germans must maintain at least a 2 to 1 kill ratio in men and tanks.

Hi Overkenshin,

It's been several years since we did GJS, but I recall that we were both about 30-40% across the map as the Allies.

As for turns completed, we were both getting concerned about time remaining for the Allies. As a reference point, in our German campaigns we both had that fairly unique recon (Aufklärung? included a bunch of armoured cars) battlegroup enter as fresh reinforcements on the western edge of the strat map. I recall that we regretted not being able to play on some of the western maps, as they looked quite good.

My opponent in these twin campaigns tends to be quite aggressive, and his losses tended to be much higher than mine. In my Allied campaign I was trying to find a balance between offense and conservation, but even I was feeling the pinch. As the campaign continued, I had to use my reinforce button for most units, and applied as much pressure as I could. However, I've found CC is not really a game where you can just throw units in, to force a situation.

I found that to efficiently take a map off a good human opponent would take about 3 battles in most cases, and my opponent would often do effective counter-attacks once I had taken a map, so we would see turn after turn of fighting along a generally static front line.

As a contrast, I remember I later did an Allied campaign against the AI, and was able to push across the whole strat map well within the time limit.
