Stavka notes with some displeasure that the offensive in the Northern part of Europe, that is Poland, is come to a grinding halt. New troops are being sent to the area, and we hope this will lead to more victories. In northern Rumania a German Panzer force was discovered, and it was engaged. We destroyed it completely, with both artillery, air, and direct assaults, but mainly the last thing. First they fell back to Cluj, and then outside Cluj, after being beaten back there. In all cases this was the first time that Soviet Heavy Armor, faced off against German Panzers, and we are happy to report it, as it was a very good result, for the Soviets.
Constanta gave up resisting this month. After allied and Soviet bombardment from Sea, it was easy to take the few disorganized survivors, by a direct assault. Bulgaria was also liberated, as Sofia fell to the United Soviet Socialist Republic of Turkeys forces. If we are lucky we might get to pocket the resistors in Albania and Yugsolavia, with a spearhead thrust across what used to be the Free states of Hungary and Czechoslovakia.
Things seem quiet in the Far East, and while the Japanese have taken up arms, once again aganist the Chinese, Soviet forces remain on the ready, if they should cross the "red line" that would be the taking of non-coastal settlements.
