The battle for Rzhev
I was lucky to get that one, and had to pull all the stops. Leader change, all and everything I had in terms of dedicated support units, the whole Luftwaffe supporting, and assaulting with Pz Divisions a 3-Fort, which I'd never do, but this was the final turn so I got away with it. Still, it was a nail-biter to the end.
Ground support makes all the difference in a difficult battle, but has to be used sparingly to ensure the airplanes are in a rested and ready.
A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon. - Napoleon Bonaparte, 15 July 1815, to the captain of HMS Bellerophon.
