We finally breach the river south of Moscow, and even our infantry seems to grasp the importance of this, and is able to move west on Moscow. A plan has been devised in the basement of Führer HQ, and has been sent to the commanders to be implemented next turn. Not too many attacks this turn since Brad is now behind major rivers in alot of places, but enough still to keep the momentum. 57 attacks results in 6 helds, 46 retreats, 5 routs and 1 surrender.
The only thing that is subpar this turn is the number of trapped USSR units, but we are certain this will pick up again soon.

Manpower and Armaments drop slightly each turn now due to more and more troops being switched from static mode, which leads to increased "non combat" losses.
