Pesky Soviet Weather!!!!
Well, nothing to do about the mud, I try to place infantry on the line so I can pull the panzers back. Some are rotated back this turn, some more should be allowed to do so next turn.
In the South Brad has fallen back from the river line, I will NOT push here, as my units are mainly weak German Infantry and Rumanians. I got Rostov though, that is always nice. Apart from that, not much happens.
We try to eliminate the pocketed units, but only manage a successrate of 50%. Not good enough. 8 attacks gives 4 helds and 4 surrenders.
