This is an AAR of a GC with BigAnorak as the evil Fascist invaders, and me playing the valiant defenders of the Motherland. I will not have time to do a full AAR, but I will provide glimpses of the big picture every 3 or 4 turns. We are playing GC with the alternate victory conditions.
The map below is after Soviet moves on turn 4. It appears the Germans have concentrated most of their mobile units north of the marshes. There are panzers up norh near Pskov, another concentration west of Velikie Luki, and some on the Dnepr south of the landbridge. Note also the apparent SS-corps near Vitebsk.
In the south, there is only a relatively weak Panzer Group just west of Vinnitsa.
I have just pulled back the forces west of Kiev a couple of hexes, as their southern flank was feeling menaced, but otherwise the south seem to be holding fine.
In the center, the Dnepr is holding, and there is surprisingly little pressure in the area west of Smolensk. A brave cavalry division from 3d army in the swamps has just launched a daring raid that displaced some German airfields.
I have a feeling the enemy is making their greatest effort in the area north of Vitebsk, and that area has thus been prioritized for reserves. I have built up a substantial position in depth around Pskov. It is slowly crumbling, but doing its job. If I can, I will try to hold Leningrad.
On the evacuation side, I have railed out a large part of the industry in Leningrad, as well as some smaller lots of armaments in Kiev, Mogilev and Odessa.
