Our battle has been on indefinite suspension for a month now.

We are not sure when Bobo will be able to resume.

We have not yet converted this battles to the 1.08 beta.

The following are how things stand as of 12-31-42 the last turn.

This battle must have been with very well supplied German troops which had seen little fighting over the past few weeks.

Since I have new oil production from Grozny and Miakop, I need someone to tell if my production etc is better than normal.

I assume my oil stocks should be increasing.

fuel

I'm still following this one. It seems nicely balanced or you may have a slight advantage, I'm not certain.
A Soviet offensive in the Smolensk area is going to be nasty for you when the tide turns. That's his trump card. You are wise to fortify the land bridge and I think I would be turning the whole area into a massive fortified zone.
Love the fluid situation in the South. I've never experienced that position in a wite game (I've never attempted a Case Blue). In my opinion if it's likely to succeed then the game is probably over already. Great fun though I'm sure.

Hello All.

Bobo resigned about early Feb 43.

He continued to attack in an classic Stalingrad pincer and in the area East and north of Verorozneh. It was classic smash and be resmashed..

He was also advancing broadly across the Cacaucus plain. AT the lower river, I set a trap and had just surrounded 4 Russian div with armor I had finally just withdrawn my from the Baku front. It had taken me about 5 or 6 weeks to get more German and Rum infantry into Baku line. This released armor occurred to late to stop the Stalingrad Russian action. I was going to try and roll-up his very extended troops which were crossing the plains unmolested eventually making it back to near lower Stalingrad for future front stabilization.

While he was attacking Stalingrad in his pincer, which is actually forcing me to retreat West, I snuck in and captured Stalingrad when he withdrew one week too much from the center. Lower Stalingrad was defended by rus artillery brigade and it retreated solely into Stalingrad and was attacked hastily for the vital city center. Units in Stalingrad 2 weeks later were cut off but since the pincer trap is far from closing, were they were rescued and now retreating west.

Action near big V was brute force head on.

It was a really fun war.

First: I attacked into the cacaucus to get the oil and because Bobo as going to be to strong anywhere north. Plus I had never tried before not even against the computer.

Thus attacking south was a huge learning experience.

One I captured the 2 big oil spots and one was actively producing oil and fuel. I was hoping to see how that may have effected long term German strength.

I did post a few production numbers. Someone with more info could see If it had started to aid global fuel stocks etc.

I also attacked south because of that huge surround in early 42. It felt like a real replay.

I have read the comments on Bobo's link, and agree a turn north to take Stalingrad from the south might have been the better move but I guess I was still experimenting.

Thus, my late fall offensive, east of Voronezh, was shy the armor stuck down in the Baku gap.

First it takes forever to get the RR down to the gap and if you want to keep the Russians bottled up down there the armor had to wait. Plus, low mp's during my advance to the gap. If they had been with the late fall offensive I probably could have sealed it and taken Voronezh. Then I would have had my chance to somehow get 260vp's.

Not enough armor to close the gap. Due to units being in Baku gap

a big attack which Germany needed to win. Clearly a mosh pit during these battles. Many Russian tanks destroyed as well.
