Well, I had to try, now it is a furball. As Capt Flam said, it was broken, not fully, but supplied. My worries were units (important ones) being cut off, but that was not really the case. Who would have thought that minor SS brigades, Slovaks, Italians, and Hungarians would be bad on a river flank? Live and learn.
Still, in the mud this turn maneuver was impossible. I did "seal" it again, but the tank shells are going to open it again. Mud, though, means that the units in the pocket will not be able to move far, and next turn (insert evil laugh here) I get the clear first.
Units in the north prepared to smash south in the clear, hopefully giving a double seal to the pocket next turn. Units in the south played around and tried to pretend to be useful. Infantry rushed forward as much as they could to shore up the pocket.
Nobody can accuse me of thinking small. This will be the do or die battle for the campaign season, I am sure. My mobile forces will be burned for a long time after this, no matter what. Still, there is a measure of operational mobility regained
