July 4th....and Sevastopol falls in my PBEM game.
Thought I might share the secret of my success.
On the first turn, I railed every independent artillery piece (except one, I ran out of rail points) in front of Sevastopol....and moved the existing ones closer.
As well..I transfer every KG to the crimea...and the stuka's/fighters out to the main front. I also block the port with my small navy.
On the second turn, I bombard/bomb the front hexes around sevastopol. I used Manstein's card gamble in my game and it backfired, so I only attacked and took the north hex. I used the corp attack card there.
On the third turn, I take the middle and south hex, after intense bombardment.
Now the lack of supply should be beginning to tell....and the combats just get easier and easier. Sevastopol generated a miltia unit, but it still wasnt enough to stop me from taking it on the fourth turn. With the fall of the city, I move my fleet to Yalta, in case the Soviet navy is showing up.
