im playing a game against a human player and have surrounded 425,000 men on my turn as Axis.The soviet player got supplies and air support to the encirled men but now ive made them surrender all of them.
Ok your isolated, but you still have some supplies. You wouldn't all just surrender after 1 week, then again it will be the same on the way back. Just a bit harsh I think. Bastogne springs to mind, isolated, supplied from the air, you don't just pack it in. Breslau ? Did the 6th Army at Stalingrad pack it in after 1 week, once surrounded ?
Yeah you think of Cherkassy & Korsun pockets, Breslau later on Budapest, even Stalingrad. Breaking in, breaking out was a big feature of the later part of the campaign in the east. As German this is going to hurt you, when you want your surrounded guys to just stand firm while you break back in. You can't always organise this in one turn ?
