After the relative calm of the previous turns, the East front erupts again as PzG-en 1, 2, 3 & part of 4 launch the second phase of Operation Barbarossa. With the border battles well behind, we need to make up for lost time and focus on capturing territory, maybe some industry and above all, manpower.
All SS are end of turn.
With the Volkhov well behind the front line, I finally start making progress towards the NE and the linkup with the Fins is getting closer. Novgorod falls and the West bank is almost cleared. Still, he maintains that annoying and threatening bulge aimed right at my supply line which is a constant source of concern.
Nevertheless, I think it was a mistake to bypass Leningrad, it's simply taking much longer than I expected. Truth be told tough, Tarhunnas is showing he is a top notch opponent by fighting hard up North. I'm sorely missing I & II Corps in the drive on Moscow.
