So ...

we captured a bridgehead in snow - lost it
we captured a bridgehead in mud - lost it

and now when the weather should have made crossing the Don impossible a freak blizzard froze the river again and

we captured a bridgehead in blizzard

Will it be third time lucky? Will we stop losing our bridgeheads? Will the Soviets stop us taking them?

Turn 45 Army group North

A blast of cold air from the North freezes the ground and allows X corps to make progress East of lake Ilman threatening to encircle Soviet forces. Unfortunately the cold weather is not forecast to last into next week.

Turn 45 29-April-1942 Air

There is no red air force detected on the map apart from one base of reconnaissance placed in the far north. Unluckily for them on the very last hex just in range of our Heinkels - is nowhere safe?

Turn 45 29-April-1942 Economic

Blizzard means there is only just enough to keep the damage levels on the T-70 factory at Gorky high. So far since v1.11.02 we have had only one turn of it expanding.




The Rumanians though can keep building damage levels in the Caucasus where it is a European weather zone.

Introducing T46-T54 The Dream

In turn 54, in the future of this AAR, many new players joined the Soviet team and asked for the game to be rolled back to a start on T45. So in effect once we put T54 back to bed and went to sleep, we awoke to find that the turns 46 to 54 we had played had in fact been a dream - and we were back on T46 again!

Nevertheless with much of the AAR written up we will be posting what happened in the dream fork of this game. Once that is complete we will be returning to this point in the game for the reloaded game.

Bobby Ewing may have thought he made TV history - but compared to this that was nothing

I am very sad I will not be facing my nemesis .. you made the game both challenging and enjoyable. It would have been nice to see how it could have turn out .. now to”perfect” turns 46 - 55 again .. I am sure the Soviets will do things differently but so will the Germans and I suspect the Germans will be in a better position.. I hope it goes further this time ..

I long for the game Steph and Steltrck played ..
