The south is a quiet sector for the Germans. In fact there is some signs of a prophylactic retreat in SW Front's sector ...

Once the Germans have revealed their intentions for the summer, the Soviet player is faced with an interesting dilemma: should they go onto the defensive, moving reserves from quiet sectors to keep laying a carpet in front of the Germans, hoping that the panzers can be reduced to below the 1.5k mark before encirclement and the AP crunch reduce the Soviets to less than 6 million troops. Or should they attack in sectors where there is a "favourable correlation of forces" in the hope of persuading the Germans to start looking for reserves to plug the line. In my experience, it's impossible to choose the first of these options, unless you believe you're staring defeat in the face, so the Red Army lumbers onto the offensive in the south, while trying desperately to untangle itself after the panicked rush to the north, which has mixed together four fronts. At least we manage to force the encircled panzer grenadiers to surrender .... This is the big picture.

What the effect of this decision will be is hard to say. It's clear now that the Germans have failed to land a knock-out blow, but it's also clear that they still have the initiative.

We've taken a break for a few months, but the war should be continuing soon.
