It's currently Oct 1942 in my first game against a human opponent and I'm playing as Axis and my question is this. What can the axis player expect during the blizzard of '42? Do they suffer the same penalties as '41? Do i need to winter armor divisions in Germany? Does the Soviet become an unstoppable juggernaut? I have a line of level 3 forts, mostly behind rivers, stretching at a 45 degree angle from a few hexes east of Leningrad down to Stalingrad. Is it ridiculous to assume I can hold this line?

1. AFAIK no Axis blizzard penalties in 42
2. you near Stalingrad by winter 42 in HvH ? Sounds comforting.

The main thing is frozen rivers. Other than that, watch for more and more Soviet Corps coming of the line thus giving the Soviets significant attack power. You should do just fine this winter. Next winter will be a whole different animal.
