Turn: Sep/Oct 1942
Impulse: 5

The CW want to try some Strategic Bombing but storm conditions make this a no-no.

The weather is also causing a problem for the Soviets with most of their frontline units out of supply in the north. Things suddenly look a bit precarious for the Soviets - who now regret the attacks earlier in the turn in the south that caused many of their units to be disorganised....

As far as the northern units are concerned, as they are out of supply, they desperately do not need to be disorganised as the combat factors will plummet.

A general pull back is ordered... the units will be disorganised but at least will be back in supply.

The weather is lousy - Storm in the Arctic and Northern Temperate Zones make much progress unlikely for the Germans...

The south is pretty much played out for both sides this turn, but in Latvia and Belorussia, there will be action...

Turn: Sep/Oct 1942
Impulse: 7

There are no HQ's to support and no aircraft can fly so the program moves straight to the resolution phase. First up its the attack in Latvia against the 2nd Guards Motorised Army. Barring absolute disaster this attack should be straight forward for the Germans, who have two powerful Panzer, and three strong Infantry Corps available.

The roll is a 13 and the Soviet unit is destroyed for no loss. Riga is now surrounded and the breach in the Soviet line has become a chasm...

In Belorussia, the attack should be even more straight forward. The Soviet 7th Guards Infantry is out of supply and disorganised so only counts for 3 factors. The Germans choose Blitzkrieg and launch the attack.

Its a 12. The defender is destroyed and the Germans are untouched.

Back to the Allies and the weather remains bad, with aircraft grounded. It will be a case of tidying up the line for the Soviets and continuing the painful attempts to get rid of Partisans in India for the CW.

The Indians launch an attack against some Partisans that have sprung up in Deilhi. Mountbatten provides HQ support. The Axis choose the Assault table, but a roll of 17 destroys the defender.

Turn: Sep/Oct 1942
Impulse: 11

Bad news for the Allies - the throw is a 10 and the turn continues. The only good news is that the Storm weather continues... However, this won't save the 4th Motorised and 39th Infantry Armies in Riga for much longer as they are now out of supply.

Once again the Germans look for two attacks - one southwest of Pskov and the second in the forest between Minsk and Mogilev.

Turn: Sep/Oct 1942
Impulse: 11

In the north, the 2nd Guards Garrison and 3rd Infantry Armies are the next Soviet forces to face Army Group North's armoured juggernaut - can they put a stop to their havoc-wreaking turn? The Blitzkrieg table is chosen by the Germans.

And the answer is yes! Finally the run comes to an end, despite an 11 being thrown. The 57th Panzer Corps is destroyed and all units disorganised. The Soviets lose just the Infantry Army.

To the south, the Blitzkrieg table is also chosen. A throw of 13 shatters the defenders and the Germans do not convert to retreat. The Germans cannot advance as they would be out of supply.

Sadly the oil rule problems are showing themselves - the Germans have insufficient oil for all their units next turn....

Good job putting together this AAR.

1 request. Could you show off Europe and Asia to give an idea how it looks globally. The big picture.

The Royal Navy needs to start moving Transports around as there are a number of Aussie and Canadian units that need transporting.

The USN begin to move the fleet to Pearl. Saratoga, Washington and Chester are the first three to go.

Zoom level 2 without weather and railroads.

Europe with the Mediterranean centered.
North Europe from UK going east.
Asia with China and any interesting Japanese objectives for the future.

Thanks again.

Northern Europe

The terrible start in the USSR means that there are very few German units in France. IF the CW had bought AMPH then they could have taken advantage of this...sadly I forgot to do so thus giving the Germans a reprieve..

China

What a total balls up. Really not much to say. The fact that the USA still seems a way from war helps the Japanese, but the war in China has been incompetence city, combined with the fact that I have no units ready for Pacific expansion when war does come...

I now have the issue with the Japanese carriers so do not know at this stage what that will mean in terms of actual numbers of carrier air.

The plan will be to send no more units to China and build up for conquest of the Philipinnes and the NEI (if I can).

Nice overview of the big picture. Go Axis!!! Don't despair about little administrative glitches.

Now tell the Axis side of your AAR to leave the room.

This part is for the CW only.
Couple things you might build to help your CW get back on the continent. Para's, ATR's and Royal marines. If you have them already, wonderful. Lend lease a DC-3 from the US to CW for the extra range, if the US has one built.

The forest hex SW of Bordeaux appears to be out of supply. If the axis are unaware when the CW is poised to land, that might make a suitable landing beach. Taking the hex opens up the minor port on the border with Spain as a entry supply port, cuz its cut off. Or go balls to the wall and hit Bordeaux at the same time. Ground striking that pesky German unit near Nantes, would be good also.

You may have already thought about these things. In that case, go for it! No need for my harebrained suggestions.

Thanks again for sharing your effort at making MWiF less mysterious.

Any suggestion welcome

Its definitely the case that attacking is more difficult than defence, but I think I would really need to go some to muck up the Allies from here. I assume the US must come in pretty soon. The Italians cannot defend Sardinia and Sicily and so the CW will gain loads of air bases for attacks against the mainland. I need more AMPH as having a threat to Germany is also vital to really stretch the Axis.

Over to the Axis now. With the units in Riga out of supply, the Luftwaffe make a determined attempt to ground strike and thus benefit from their much reduced defence factors (both Soviets are black print so worth 1 point). The Germans also try for the Garrison unit southwest of Pskov, and the stack two hexes west of Mogilev.

Four ground strikes then - all by Stukas - against three hexes:

The Soviets can do nothing about the Stukas - the Luftwaffe fighter strength is too great.

Meanwhile in sunny China, the Japanese attempt a ground strike which the Chinese seek to defend in order to try and incur more losses on the Japanese air force.

The Japanese have a 4:3 advantage, although that did not help the Zero lost previously. What will happen this time?

Round 1

The Chinese throw a 16 (AA) and decides to abort the Japanese fighter
The Japanese throw a 12 (AC). No bomber in the fight so no effect.

Both sides decide to stick around - its now evened up to 3:3

Round 2

The Chinese throw an 18 (DX PX) - the front bomber is destroyed and the pilot is killed....
Some measure of revenge is achieved when the Japanese throw an 18 - also a DX PX - but in point terms that is more costly for the Japanese...
