There are two things Sean is doing extremely well, and that is to break pockets (yup Lvov pocket reopened (see below)), and set up reserve activation (as per MT's post in main thread).
So, I grab more empty land, and I close the Lvov pocket for the N'th time, but since I cannot place atleast two units per hex, I am sure it will break...again...The reserve activations are effectively grounding me to a halt, and I now need something like 3:1 for a planned attack, and 5:1 for a hasty one
Oh well, on the good side, I do not have to run far in the winter to get away from the Blizzard (only wish it would be that easy to deal with spam mails from "Blizzard" from my WoW days ).
The USSR launched one attack and caused a retreat (see below), while we only managed 54 attacks this turn. The results were 12 helds, 31 retreats, 3 routs, 1 shatter and 7 surrenders.
Spent alot of points on leader reassignments, most notably, Kesselring and Manstein takes over AGN and AGC, while Rundstedt stays in the South.
