Outright dissaster befals Southern Fronts 9th Army.
All goes down the drain when 26th Cavalry divs routes after it's first combat. The bastards should be shot to the last!
This gap is quickly exploited by the Wiking division which, even after it's exertions of last week, has plenty of movement to spend and closes the trap on 9th Army pinning it to the Black Sea. To make matters even worse, the Wiking has enough movement to flip 4 hexes to the East making any attempt at relief impossible. That is to say if I would have anything to attempt a relief with, which I don't. All told, 9 inf. div, 3 Cav and 3 airborn brigades are cut off. To make matters absolutely distastefull, I have no airbase in the pocket.
With 9th Army bottled up (one of the strongest Armies I have with many 50/50 morale/experience divsions) my whole Southern flak is open with virtually nothing to plug the gap. In addition, the Crimea has now become undefendable. Bad, bad, bad!
Yes, that was really stupid of me
But these are the type of things you can get away with against a lesser opponent, I must stop underestimating this guy!
