Hmm, not sure what to say about this turn. Alot can be said, so I think I will start at the beginning. I used all my points reactivating infantry divisions facing Moscow, and also used some of the divisions in the rear line (that was not set to static) to attack the USSR line in two places, just to remind Brad that he has to keep watch on my infantry as well. Then I eliminated most of the units pocketed last turn, lashed out with my panzers, and made a few mistakes with my moves...
No do-overs here, as that is something I am no fan of, so I will live with my mistakes.
85 attacks resulted in 4 helds, 1 scouted, 59 retreats, 6 routs, 1 shatter, 14 surrenders.
