In the south, I forget to take a screenshot or do a save before I closeout the turn and send it. I usually make a save before pressing F12, then I can go back to the save and do the screenshots for the AAR in my own good time.
Anyway, back to the action, I will describe it in words. One panzer corps crossed the Dnepr between Dnepropetrovsk and Zaporozhe last turn along with some infantry. They also got a HQ buildup. The infantry can now clear a path for the panzers, and they make a spectacular breakout. In a slash and burn operation lone mobile divisions capture Stalino, Kharkov and Mariupol, all with their industry still left! No solid encirclements, but the capture of the industry is an objective in itself. As in Tula, these deep penetrations risk a unit here and there, but will seriously pull the rug out of the Soviet defense.
Below a picture of the result of the slash and burn operation at the start of turn 14, before German moves. As predicted, the penetrating divisions are stuck far out and isolated, but the Soviet armies are pulling back heels over head.
