Turn 62 aka Game, Set, Match
There are so many sayings I could use for this turn. "It doesn't rain, it pours", "the turn that broke the camel's back", are the two I chose .
Just as happened in reality, the failure of the Rumanians has spelled my doom, and although I have not yet offered my surrender, I will have to do so if I cannot restore the situation next turn.
Although this has been a struggle all the way, just look at the number of attacks and the results for this turn.
USSR : 32 attacks, for a result of 16 helds, 15 retreats and 1 rout.
Axis : 24 attacks, for a result of 11 helds, 9 retreats and 4 routs.
Oh, and do I have to tell you that Sean once more forced my panzers to retreat, and hence reopened the pockets formed last turn?
USSR : 101.000 troops, 1.389 guns, 172 AFVs, 396 AC.
Axis : 80.000 troops, 1.110 guns, 263 AFVs, 174 AC.
This too, shows the severity of this turn.
USSR units in pockets at start of turn
USSR units in pockets at end of turn
# of USSR reserve activations
USSR units destroyed
4 this turn, all delt with.
Manpower : 7.962
Vehicles : 154.444
Armaments : 215.063
Hiwi : 3
This too shows how close we are to a complete breakdown.
