It is quite funny thing, that at Leningrad approaches both of us evaluated other side being much much stronger. After reading this part of AAR and seeing real strength of Mike's troops I feel, that pouring arriving reinforcements into AGN area would have made the difference, but I have to say, that I do not regret not doing it.
I strongly believe that Leningrad is secondary objective and prioritising AGN over AGC has to be really justified by favourable developments.
It is either everything or nothing. Terrain favours defender massively, limits possible direction of assault and its remote location prevents using engaged troops elsewhere for 2-3 turns.
Don't get me wrong, Leningrad has to be attacked, but I strongly believe it is up to Soviet player to lose it or not. Axis should avoid overcommitting there.
The number one objective is Leningrad and the south. If you do one and not the other its no good enough to win or atleast have a chance.
Moscow is impossible as we have seen with some of the best verse average players its still not takeable. Even very good vs below average.
The south is still a cake walk, Leningrad I think is not that hard IF you throw allot into it and drive striaght for it. Moscow sure needs to be pushed, but only to give back land during blizzard then take it out the following summer.
