Turn 6 - 24.7.-30.7.1941

Center
Remains of the Mogilev pocket are still alive. Other than reducing the pocket, only limited German advance in the center sector. This time I have rather retreated behind next river because I can not afford to lose more units now.

Turn 6 24.7.-30.7.1941

South

New pocket in the south and another 7 rifle divisions will be doomed next turn in Kiev. I decided to not retreat from Kiev because Panzers would have been able to cut them next turn anyway. In Kiev they can at least survive for few turns.

Turn 7 - 31.7.-6.8.1941

South

Kiev still not isolated, Odessa firmly in Soviet hands, the situation in south is not that bad but many units have been lost and I have very limited replacements now.

Turn 8 - 7.8.-13.8.1941

Center

One river line broken, order of the day retreat behind next river. Center sector is gaining from the missing Panzer Korps that were moved to south. Thus the south is another story.

Turn 8 - 7.8.-13.8.1941

South

Kiev finally isolated, will try to keep it alive as long as possible via air supply. Unfortunately Panzers were able to cross two river line. On the bright side the second river is still in Soviet hands.

You seem to be doing ok.
Nice squeeze West of Poltava. I would be doing more of this, his flanks are loose.

It may look so but the opposite is true. I am loosing to many troops. OOB is around 4-4.2M.
Yes his flank security is nearly non-existent but I failed miserably to exploit it.
We are currently on T14 and few more disasters did happen. I am really afraid what I will see on T14.

Turn 9 - 14.8.-20.8.1941

Factories evacuated:
Stalino 20 Arms 5 Vehicles
Moscow 4 IL-4

Unfortunately I was short few RR capacity points to get the whole Stalino armaments out at once.

North
Grinding continues but I underestimated the digging capacity. Leningrad is lost case.

Turn 9 - 14.8.-20.8.1941

South

Another pocket, this one was really unexpected. Southern sector is close to collapse. Dnepropetrovsk abandoned as I can't afford to loose any more divisions. At least I was lucky with weather and next week will be mud.

Don't bank on the next turn actually being mud. I my game against Michael T that report said that ifwas supposed to be a mud turn in the Leningrad sector, but when we had the turn it was actually clear instead of mud. Remember it is only a forcast and forcasts can be wrong.

I know, the chance is if I recall 75%. But we are on T14 so I know the forecast has been correct.

Makeevka 3 Arms

I was once again surprised by the Panzers. With the clear weather back my line was broken and I lost Shliselburg. This early it means there is no hope for Leningrad.

Turn 11 - 28.8.-3.9.1941

Center

Germans advanced little bit just to reach my lines. West of Tula, Panzers made little bridgehead across Oka but I've been able to seal this small breach.

Turn 11 - 28.8.-3.9.1941

South

The pocket has been cleared in one turn and immediately followed new catastrophe. 2 complete Armies were encircled. This time I fought back. Around half of the 1. Panzer Gruppe is isolated and/or their supply lines are contest with ZOC. If it will not work the South Front will collapse.

Would you happen to know if I can switch to this map in the middle of a game without impacting it? Or do both sides have to install it at the beginning to work?NAL: Twigster

Absolutely love the map you are using!

Yes you can switch to the modded map whenever you want. It doesn't have any impact on ongoing game.

Turn 12 - 4.9.-10.9.1941

Center

This turn I was again lucky with mud in north weather zone. Unfortunately I don't have strength to destroy that 2 IDs surrounded in previous week. At least they will suffer from attrition and morale hit.

Turn 12 - 4.9.-10.9.1941

South

Zaporozhye pocket reopened once again. I took the risk only because forecast for next week in south is mud. I have been probably very lucky with mud 3 weeks in a row.
