Let's face it, this is a difficult game compared to the original PG series, and if you want to avoid restarting the campaign, you may have to cheat. The problem with core units carrying over from one scenario to the next is that if you get unlucky in one scenario, that may make it IMPOSSIBLE to succeed in the following scenarios. So unless you end each scenario with your core units overstrength and no core losses, you may be facing Mission Impossible in the next scenario.

For example as an experienced gamer (including PG), I played the first Polish scenario rather loosely at the Colonel level expecting an easy victory, bought a lot of units, lost a couple of core units, and ended the scenario with many of my units weak and NONE of them overstrength. As a result, in the following scenario (Low Countries) I did not even come close to even a marginal victory as the Allied tanks and planes, helped by numerous rivers in front of cities caused heavy casualties and destroyed some more core units. Game over...

I am glad that I did not play deep into the campaign before I realized this. So my advice is that if you start to go under, unless you are a masochist, CHEAT like hell! There is a list of cheats somewhere on this forum.

I have read comments by some players claiming to have played the whole campaign at the hardest difficulty and getting a decisive victory for every scenario in the campaign. There are either some military geniuses on this forum who would make Guderian look like an amateur or there are some tall tales making the rounds...

I'd just like to say that those claims aren't tall tales.

I play the PzC DLCs, which are arguably harder than the stock campaign. I play with -75% prestige, and I have won DV on every map from 1939-1941, documented via video capture. I try to explain some of my tactics to help inform other players of tricks.

However, there is no shame in using cheat codes when you are still learning the game. Everyone was new at one point.

Well I did very well on the first campaign and every DLC up until '43...Now that I'm there I couldn't agree more about the loss of units and the next scenerio then being almost imposible...I use to enjoy in the original series that I could change history, but there are just so many Russians that a minor victory is all I try for in this DLC. That is unless I want to lose my entire force but for a few units. I don't believe we have to recreat the 6th Army's demise every time do we?

Lets face it. It is possible to achieve a string of DV's at the hardest levels without cheating in most of the DLC campaigns.
