Right then - no pressure. This is the make-or-break turn for the Germans.....

In Latvia the Blitz table is chosen. The Germans roll a......

......18!! Zut alors as they say in Berlin. Both defenders destroyed - including Yeremenko and no disorganisation for the attackers!! Der Dvina river line ist Krank! exclaims a happy Adolf like a girl!

Turn: Sep/Oct 1942
Impulse: 2

An air of invincibility is suddenly felt within the ranks of the Wehrmacht - the dream of better days head, of conquest in the east, could it be true? The war over by Christmas?.....

....Well possibly - I think there is a very good chance the Soviets will be in Berlin by Christmas. In the centre, the Germans roll a 5. One defending division is lost and two German formations. That really must be game over...

The final attack in the east is not as bad as it could have been. A 13 was thrown, resulting in both Soviet armies retreating, while two German units are disorganised.

And just to cap it off - a) the Germans lost an infantry in getting rid of the French partisan and b) I forgot to attack the Soviet Partisans....

Turn: Sep/Oct 1942
Impulse: 3

Right, now the Germans have shown their hand, can the Soviets put them to the sword in the south? With their spare fighter in hand, the Soviets send two bombers in to try and disorganise two exposed German stacks. A victory in one or both of these hexes and the Germans will be in full retreat...

The Soviet decide to attack both hexes. Guderian is brought in to provide HQ Support in the north - and Timoshenko counters. Neither side can bring in bombers - or at least, not without getting them shout out of the sky in the case of the Germans...

So here we go - two monster attacks and combat in the northern most hex is resolved first. The Soviets choose blitzkrieg and........

The second attack now, and this time the Germans have the choice of table. They go for Assault....

....and its a 10. The Germans lose no units, the Soviets lose one and are disorganised. That could have been a whole lot worse for the Wehrmacht.

Just curious on when and where you used the German offensive chits. If the Germans didn't work on getting another one, it is a shame (bit late now perhaps) as the one I used against the French in the west was just brutal and basically blew their line to pieces. I believe the Russians also have one as well and with a good HQ, they should be able to lay some serious hurt on the Germans at some point.

There is an option to use the offensive chit when you choose the type of action you do at the beginning of the impulse. It makes you choose the general before you do a thing in the turn, which makes it impossible to do a 'take-back'. heh.

What Z said.

I have little practical experience with them as they were not in the game when I was playing it on the table top.

The Germans start the game with one (should not use it for Poland) and get another at the start of 1940. They are expensive to build and consume a fair amount of oil, but can be devastating if used in the right spot.

Essentially, you have to name a HQ as the beneficiary and there are some different options in terms of what you can use the offensive chit for. For the Germans, they would probably use them to perform a "super combined" (essentially, you can move unlimited units at once, including naval, air, and ground), or to turn all face down HQ's face up or in your case, probably a land chit. The land version allows 1 HQ to double the combat value of ground units equal to double its org value (so Rundstedt can do 8 ground units) within its command range. That means that stack of panzers that were worth 16 points are now worth 32 points while using 2 of your doubles. You can also use it multiple times on the same unit, so lets say the stack of panzers caught some hapless Russian 3 strength infantry corps in the open. Normally the panzers could not overrun, but doubling the stack to 32 allows them to overrun the 3 unit. The doubling effect then goes away, so they would have to be reselected to be doubled again. At the end of the current impulse, the HQ that was used will get flipped over, so you want to burn it on reorgs before that happens.

At any rate, think of the implications of doubling 8-10 German units with a chit when using one of the better HQs like Rundstedt or Manny, etc.

I think you need a 7:1 blitz to overrun units in a clear hex with armor with the 1d10 table. With the 2d10 chart Overrun is +16 I think. Is that right? I checked the RAC and didn't find a reference to the 2d10 chart there.

So, two 9-6 armor with a 2-6 div gives you 40 points if you double all three. That will stomp a 5 defense unit during the movement phase, which can ruin a defenders parade! In fact you can continue moving if you overrun again. Each overrun uses your offensive points generated by the chit, but hey, dead units during the movement phase really sets you up to attack!

Right thanks to the guys for the assistance with the offensive chit. Unfortunately I cannot use it this impulse as I had already decided the action type. However, I can use the knowledge to get troops and aircraft into position for using next turn.

Turn: Sep/Oct 1942
Impulse: 4

The Germans MUST consolidate and expand upon their bridgehead over the Dvina. For this the obvious stack is that containing the 2nd Mechanised and 2nd Siberian Armies directly east of where they made the breakthrough across the river. The Luftwaffe are seriously short of bombers now and have just one Stuka - albeit 6-quality - to try and disorganise the Soviet stack.

In the south, most Soviet units are disorganised to there is no need for ground strike - good job as fighter cover is non-existent in that theatre....

Back to the Dvina, and the Soviets have only 5 fighter points they can fly in defence. They would be annihilated so remain on the ground.

Goering orders his best units to take part in this attack and this proves a good tactic - probably the first time the Germans record a 100% success!

The Germans declare 5 attacks:

2 on the partisans
1 in the north
2 in the south

The Germans bring one bomber to each southern battle in a desperate bid to increase the low odds. This is extremely dodgy in the hex southwest of Kiev as the Soviets have a Pe-3 to counter. Could be ugly....

Round 1

The Allies roll a 9 - no effect
Amazing - the Germans roll a 15 (DA) and the Soviet fighter has to abort the fight, meaning the German Ju-88 gets through to assist the battle!

The second attack is by a Hungarian Army (1st and 2nd Corps). Again the Soviets choose the Assault table. A 9 is rolled. The 2nd Partisan is history and one Hungarian corps marches into the vacated hex.

Attention now turns north to the Baltic States. The importance of this attack cannot be over emphasised... The Germans get the choice of table and, of course, choose Blitzkrieg. Hitler is flown to Rastenburg to personally direct operations which feature the 1st SS Panzer Corps (1st (LSSAH), 2nd (Das Reich) and 3rd (Totenkopf) divisions) in the vanguard of the attack.

Well there's a change of fortune.. the Germans roll a 16 - both defenders are destroyed and a breakthrough occurs!

Two attacks to go. The first of these takes place just outside of Kiev, the Ukrainian capital. The Germans could not summon up any armour or mechanised forces for this one and so the choice of table goes to the Soviets. Needless to say they choose the Assault table.

After three good attacks it was never going to last. The Germans roll their favourite land throw - a 6. Two Soviets are destroyed and the remaining unit shattered (the Germans convert to a retreat - they do not want this unit being readily available to reinforce the northern front next turn). The Germans lose an infantry division and disorganise three more units.

And so to the last attack of the impulse and once again OKH has mis-judged the situation... I thought an armour and mech would beat an armour in terms of CRT choice - apparently not. The Soviets get the choice for this low odds attack and choose the Assault table.

The roll is a 12. The Soviets lose one unit - they choose the 3rd Armoured Army - and all the Germans are disorganised.
