This turn Sean was being rude again , oh and poor Herman Hoth was sacked again. I reinstalled him ofc, but he is not reguarded well by virtual Adolf at this time. We broke free of Seans rudeness and eliminated the pocket formed last turn. Although we did not manage to create a new one, it seems we are able to roll up the USSR frontline in the south at last, and I expect Sean to fall back unless he manages to push back my panzers with some hidden reserves I could not spot.
23 attacks for the USSR ment 12 helds, 1 scouted and 10 retreats, while our 31 attacks gave us 10 helds, 17 retreats, 2 routs and 2 surrenders.
