The southern pocket held this turn, as did the smaller ones around Stalino, so we wiped them out.
With mud all across, and the USSR falling back in the Stalino area,we did not follow up, but allowed the panzers to rest for a turn. The only eastwards move we made was into Stalino with an Infantry Division. Only 57 VPs to go now.
In total we launched 13 attacks, scoring 4 retreats and 9 surrenders. A good turn in other words
I also did something I had not done in a few turn, and looked for reinforcements that have arrived in various corps, and found some goodies, they were reassigned this turn, no need for those StuGs to remain in an inactive HQ.
