Not getting Spain with diplo was bad since it's a big part of the Sugar strategy. If you don't get Spain the easy way then you have to force it by DE (forgot the #)
Since I lost the better part of the Italian Navy this was not really an option... At least I'm not clever enough to do it given the tragical situation in the Med. Made many other errors but this Navy armagedon overshadows everything else.

Allied Turn April 8, 1943

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Snow & Frozen in Russia. Clear in Western Europe and Ukraine.

Axis forces press in on Greece. 2 sets of German Bombers (1 Med, 1 TAC) hit the Greek Corps on the right doing 2 damage. They are intercepted by UK fighters that can't break through the German escorts.
Ground attacks on Greek positions follow doing no damage, but a Bulgarian Corps threatens to cut off the road on the flank.

Tactical bombers attack the UK Corps in Basra, UK Fighters intercept and fair better than those in Greece. The bombers fail to do any damage to the Corps.
The Germans creep closer to Kuwait.
It appears that the Germans in the middle east have decided to close out Iraq/Kuwait before doing anything else.

The Bulgarian Garrison flees Kherson and is replaced by a Panzer Grenadier. The German Mech then attacks the Russian Corps south of it twice, after the two attacks both units have taken 2 damage.
The German Panzer southeast of Tula attacks a Soviet Army to it's north. The Panzer does 1 damage while taking 2 itself, and declines to take a 2nd attack.
The Finns attack (missed if it was the Corps or the Light Tanks), and the Katyusha Rockets fire in defense. I believe neither side took damage (none to Russians, didn't hear any 'hit' for the attacker)
The Finnish Army falls back and is replaced by a Corps.

A German Armor unit moves into Rouen France.



Allied Turn
Frozen in the Arctic. Frozen in Finland. Rain and Mud in Russia. Mud in Western Europe and Ukraine. Rain in England. Clear in Iraq. Clear in Egypt

The United States of America officially refuses to recognize Vichy, and declares it's intent to free the French Colonies of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia.
Operation Torch is launched and landings at Algiers and Tunis are met with mild to no resistance. US Corps take both cities, the one at Tunis takes 2 damage from landing mishaps.
In Egypt the B17s carpet bomb the Italian Army north of Cairo and 2 damage over 2 runs.
American Tactical bombers do 3 more damage to the Italian Army at the cost of 1 damage.
The 1st US Army attacks, does 2 damage and forces the Italians to retreat. The 2nd US Army moves into the vacated hex and does 2 more damage and forces another retreat.
The US Corps in Alexandria then races by Cairo, seizes the town of Suez and destroys the now 1 strength Italian Army (or maybe just shattered it?) at the cost of 1 damage.
The US Armies and Corps then shuffle a hex or so in an aggressive attempt to cut off Cairo from the Italian Army is Port Said.*
ULTRA information is passed on to HMS Bulldog and she finds U-73 in the Barents Sea. Bulldog does 4 damage to the level 2 sub while taking 1 back.
The Russian Destroyer tries her luck and forces a dive.**

The Greeks fall back as well as they can in the mud.

Bomber Command sends the Lancasters after the Saar mines and gets a rude surprise running into an AA unit that does 2 damage to the Strategic Bombers. The bombers do 4 damage to the mine.
They then bomb the Hague and do 3 damage while taking another point back.
It now appears that strategic bombing in Western Europe is not worth the effort. At least not until much higher levels of bombers.

In the Crimea an 8 strength Soviet Corps attacks an 8 strength Panzer Grenadier in Kherson (both at supply 4). The Germans take 1 damage, the Soviets 2. The Soviet Corps falls back into the swamp.
Another Soviet Corps move next to Kherson and does another point of damage to the Panzer Grenadier.
A Soviet Army exchanges a point of damage with a Panzer Corps south east of Tula.
Another Army swaps hexes and also exchanges a point of damage with the same Panzers.
Soviet T34c (level 3 tanks) then engage the same Panzers and do 2 damage (now strength 4) to them and force them to retreat south.
Soviet Light Tanks and the Armored Train do 6 damage to a Finnish Corps.
The Russians perform deforestation via 3 Katyusha rocket barrages against another Finnish Corps but it still doesn't provide good combat predictions for the Russian Corps next to the unit.
The Russian Corps attacks anyway and only manages to hurt itself 1 point. They hex swap with a Russian Army which manages to do 1 damage to the Finns but takes 2 back themselves.



* At this point I'm glad I paid the extra motorization cost for these units.
** The sub is subsequently found and we may have run into a BUG REPORT as the sub is in a half hex at the top of the map and may not be accessible to my opponent.

Sorry, had to repost. Somehow I had 2 copies of notepad open and one didn't have the Russian moves while the other didn't have the updated report information.
It's now been corrected.

Allied Turn April 30, 1943

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear Everywhere else.

Axis Air power is still king.

UK Fighters in Kuwait fair poorly taking 7 damage intercepting strikes over Basra. Unknown amount of damage to Luftwaffe, but 2 waves of bombers take 2 hits each (from interceptors and ground fire).
A German Army then attacks the Corps defending Basra, which holds strong taking only 1 damage from all the combined attacks, but has had it's morale reduced 30% and entrenchment reduced to 1.

In Greece German air power whittles a Greek Corps to the point that it is easily destroyed by land attacks.
2 UK Fighters intercepted the raids with one doing well (took 2 damage and the other not so taking 6 damage), with unknown damage to the German Luftwaffe. I couldn't even count hits.

The Germans and the Russians exchange some fire in the Crimea. The Panzer Grenadiers pull back after taking damage in an attack, and a Romanian Corps moves in Kherson.
A German Corps and Russian Corps also exchange near equal damage.
2 Soviet Fighters near Moscow loose a combined 8 points of damage intercepting German bombers going after the Russian tank formation. Again an unknown amount of damage was done to the Luftwaffe, and I lost count of hits.
The Germans follow up with a land attack (or two) against the Russian Tanks and reduce them to 3 strength as they retreat.
There was also an attack(s) against the Army southeast of Tula. It is reduced to a 6 strength (from 9), while 1 adjacent German Corps is at 8 strength (pretty sure it took 2).
The wounded Panzers flee behind German lines.
At the northern end of the Moscow front a German Army and Corps attack a Russian Corps west of Rzhev. The Russians take 6 damage, but do damage back with the Army reduced to strength 9 and the Corps 7 (not 100% sure they were at 10s to start with).
The Finns fall back a hex, no longer wanting to deal with the Armored train with a Corps sitting in clear terrain.

The Italian Army in Port Said retreats behind the Canal.

The Germans appears to have been able to move the sub that was in a half hex.

Germany occupies Vichy (presumably through a DE)
The French BB Dunkerque is scuttled, but the CL Jean de Vienne escapes.



Allied Turn
Frozen in the Arctic. Mud in Finland. Rain in Russia. Clear in Western Europe and Ukraine. Rain in Greece. Clear in England. Clear in Iraq. Clear in Egypt.

Clearly Thor still hates me.

An American Army and the American Corps destroy the German Garrison (Egyptian Nationals, I presume) in Cairo.
A Canadian Corps moves into Cairo (wasn't sure if it would automatically go back to the UK if the USA moved in).
The American Corps then takes the southern part of the Canal, while the Army that attacked moves into Port Said.
The other American Army that didn't attack, moves into the northern part of the Canal.
The 3 British Cruisers (2 CA and 1 CC), lead by HMS Hood, then move through the open Canal and bombard the Italian Corps from the Red Sea side, before moving back into the Med. They reduce the Italian's readiness (4%) and morale by (9%).
HMS Ark Royal then strikes the Italian Army twice doing 2 points of damage and as well as further reducing the morale and readiness.
USS Ranger takes her turn and does a further 2 damage to the Italian Army.
8th Air Force (US Strategic bombers) Carpet bomb the Italians for another point of damage.
US Tactical bombers do another 3 damage.
The US Army then destroys the Italian Army but takes a point of damage in doing so.

The Greek Army in Tirana boards ships and transports to the other side of Greece debarking northeast of Thessaloniki.
An English Army debarks in Tirana.
The Greeks pull back a bit more in the bad weather.
Tripoli and Malta are blockaded with one ship each.

The Army in Tula attacks the German Corps south of it and does 3 damage while taking 1 back.
An 8 strength Army attacks the same Corps and exchanges 1 damage with them.
A Russian Cavalry unit performs a recon mission along the Don river northwest of Voroshilovgrad and spies a Panzer Grenadier in the town but also notes that Stalino is unoccupied.
A Russian Corps then rushes into Stalino, and reports that the Romanian HQ and Fighters are along the coast between Manupol and Taganrog.
A Russian Army moves to 2 hexes north of Voroshilograd for a bit of support for the probing field units.
Forward elements from Stalingrad cautiously advance towards the Don river and note a Romanian Army, German Army and an Anti Tank unit in defensive positions behind the river.
A Russian Corps exchanges 1 point of damage with a German Corps (both strength 8 and at supply level 4) outside of Kherson.
An elite (11 str) Russian Corps then moves next to the German Corps and does 1 damage to it.*

Allies Liberate Egypt.

Italians exact some revenge against the Americans scoring a Human Torpedo attack against the USS Ranger for 5 damage**


* How does a defender (2 exp pips) that looses a battle (0:1 combat) gain a pip of experience (to 3)? I know there's fractions/partials, but I thought losers didn't get experience.
** The whole game, I spend 1 turn with 1 ship in a vulnerable port and I get pinged for it. The worse news is, I probably didn't need to be in the port in the first damn place.

Allied Turn May 22, 1943

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Rain in Russia. Clear Everywhere else.

In Greece, the Luftwaffe target the Greek Army outside Thessaloniki with 3 bomber strikes. UK Spitfires again go up against escorting German fighters and do a bit better this turn with some hits against the bombers as well as German fighters.
The UK fighters suffer 6 damage (4 & 2), with unknown amount of damage to the Luftwaffe planes. A Romanian Corps then attacks the Greek Army bringing it down to a 4 strength after all the attacks.
The other Greek Army, in the Albanian mountains, is attacked by an Italian Mechanized and 2 German Corps. All 3 attacking units suffer 2 losses without inflicting any.
A Bulgarian Garrison seized Kavalla, Greece.

The Germans take Basra and Kuwait, which had been evacuated.
The Russian Corps in Ahwaz suffers under 3 arial bombardments, but manages to shoot down a few planes. The Corps is then encircled and destroyed, but manages to get a hit or 2 in on the attacking units.

The Romanian HQ and fighters move out from their positions.
A German Panzer Grenadier and a Romanian Army fall back westward to attack the Russian Corps in Stalino. They do 4 damage to the Corps, but it holds the town. The Grenadiers take 2 damage and the Romanian Army 1.
Northwest of Rhzev a German Army attacks a Soviet Army, with both taking 1 damage.
Another Soviet Army, southeast of Rhzev, is attacked by German Special Forces from the Town and a Panzer Grenadier. Katyusha fire in defensive of the Russians who take 3 damage, while the Special Forces take 1.
The Finns apparently fall back a bit more, with only 1 Corps now currently visible.


Allied Turn
Frozen in the Arctic. Mud in Finland. Rain in Russia. Clear in Western Europe and Ukraine. Rain in Greece. Clear in England. Clear in Iraq. Clear in Egypt.

American Medium bombers stationed in Gabes, Tunisia soften up the Italian Garrison in Tripoli.
This is then followed by a US Army and a US Corps landings east and west of the city. Assaults destroy the Italian Garrison, but occupation will have to wait until next turn.
American forces push through the Sinai to Gaza.
US 8th Air Force (Strat bombers) bombards Rhodes for 4 damage. 2 UK Heavy Cruisers then blockade the port.

Commonwealth reinforcements arrive in north eastern Greece.
British Tactical bombers, escorted by Seafires from Ark Royal strike a 7 strength Bulgarian Corps. German Fighters intercept. Results: UK CV Air -2, UK TAC -1, GE FTR -2, BUL Corps -2.
A 2nd wave of Tactical bombers is sent this time escorted by Formidable's fighters. The same German Fighters intercept. Results: UK TAC -2, GE FTR -1, BUL Corps -2.
A 3rd wave is sent, escorts are regular Spitfires and interceptors are from a 2nd German Fighter group. Results: UK FTR -1, UK TAC -2, GE FTR -1, Bul Corps -2. Bul Corps is down to 1 strength.
The 1 strength Bulgarian Corps is attacked by 10 strength Greek Corps and is only forced to retreat. *Yeesh*
A Romanian Corps (at full strength but only INF Weapons 1) is attacked by a Greek Corps and takes 1 damage.
2 RN and 1 USN Battleships shore bombard an Italian infantry corps north of Tirana.
The UK Army in Tirana then attacks the Italian Corps and does 1 damage to it.

A Russian Light Cruiser scouts along the north coast of the Sea of Azov and spies German Tigers (heavy tanks) in Mariupol and a Romanian Fighter in Taganrog.
The cruiser stops to blockade the ports of Taganrog and Rostov.
A Russian Corps moves out of the Crimea to seize the mines and crossroads at Melitopol. All lines to Rostov are, temporarily, cut off.
A Russian Corps moves from Tikhoresk to Scout Rostov itself and reports that it is occupied by the Romanian HQ! The Corps advances on the city from the south.
Another Corps advances next to Rostov from the southeast and reports a German HQ northwest of Rostov.
The two Corps attack Rostov and do 6 damage to the Romanian HQ, while one of the Corps takes 1 damage back.
North of Rostov a Russian Corps finds a German AT unit behind the Don and attacks it. The AT takes 2 damage and the Russian Corps 3. The Russian Corps then pulls back.
Another Russian Corps moves forward and attacks the AT, both units take 2 damage, and the Russian Corps again pulls back.
In the northern part of the Moscow front, the Russians launch 2 rocket attacks at Rzhev to reduce morale and entrenchment.
Rzhev is then attacked by 4 Russian Armies and the German Special Forces take 4 damage, and do 1 damage back to one of the Russian Armies.
Further south in the line, a Russian Special Forces unit moves into the forest south of Kaluga, and sees the Italian HQ supporting the troops on the far southern flank.
The Special Forces unit attacks a German Corps, both take 2 damage.
A Siberian Shock Army moves next to the wounded Corps and attacks it doing 3 more damage, then retreats back to the forest.
Katyusha rockets are fired at the German Corps at the southeast corner of the Moscow front, reducing morale and entrenchment.
A 7 strength Russian Army then does 2 damage to the rocket shocked troops, then pulls back behind the lines.
Siberian JS II (Heavy Tanks) then roll forward and destroy the German Corps.
2 Soviet Mechanized units then attack an Italian Corps near Orel and force it to retreat at 3 strength. The Italians do 1 point of damage to each Russian Mechanized unit.
A third Soviet Mechanized unit rolls into the gap and then destroys the Italian Corps.
A Russian Corps moves up to the next Italian Corps and attacks, doing nothing more than remove it's entrenchment.
The 3rd Russian Mech then uses it's 2nd attack against that Italian Corps and does 3 damage while taking 1 back.
Russian Paratroopers are then sent into the empty space beyond the lead Mech, a hex that borders a Hungarian HQ, an Italian HQ and an Italian fighter. The Fighter intercepts and runs into escorts from near Voronezh.
The Italian fighters take 5 damage, while the Russians only 2. The Paratroopers are unharmed and land without casualties.
With so many juicy targets, the paratroopers attack the damaged Italian fighters and destroy them while taking 1 damage themselves.
Russian Tactical bombers are then sent after the Italian HQ. They are intercepted by German fighters near Smolensk. Russian escorts and German interceptors both take 3 damage, the Tactical bombers take 1 and the HQ takes 2.
In Finland A Russian Army and Light Tanks move forward.
The Light Tanks do 1 damage to a Finnish Corps. They hex swap with the Armored Train who does 2 more damage to the same Finnish Corps.
Russian Tactical bombers are sent against the same Corps and a bloody air battle with the Finnish Fighters ensues: RU FTR -3, RU TAC -2, FIN FTR -4, FIN CORPS -2.
The Russian Army then attacks and exchanges 1 damage with the Finnish Corps (now down to strength 4).

Vichy France Battleship Lorraine vacillates and joins the Allies.

Allied Turn June 13, 1943

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear Everywhere else.

German Panzers show up on the Greek/Yugoslavia border and attack an 8 strength UK Corps across a river in a clear valley hex. After 2 attacks the Corps has taken 4 damage and retreats while the Panzers have taken only 1.
To the northwest a German elite (10 str, 2 pips exp) Corps attacks a Greek Corp in the Mountains taking 1 point of damage and not hurting the Greek unit.
The German air force is quiet this turn in the Balkans.

The Germans complete the conquest of Iraq, Kuwait and the English portion of Persia.
German forces advance into Soviet Persia and attack an improved Garrison stationed in Khorramabad with an Infantry Corps and a Tactical Bomber. The Garrison is reduced to 3 strength.

German Heavy Tanks take out the Russian Corps in Stalino with 2 attacks.
North of Stalino, Panzer Grenadiers do 4 damage to a Russian Cavalry Corps.
The damaged (4 strength) Romanian HQ flees Rostov and is replaced by a Romanian Army.
A Hungarian Army shows (rails?) up to support the defense of Kharkov.
Near Orel, the Russian offensive is blunted by heavy use of air power. The Soviet paratroopers are attacked by 5 waves of bombers German Fighters escort the first 2, and Russian Interceptors engage the first 3.
Russian Fighters took 7 damage over 3 squadrons, GE FTRs took 2 hits, IT Med Bmbr 2 hits, IT TAC 1 hit, GE TAC 2 hits all of unknown damage (there were 2 other German TAC which didn't take any hits iirc).
The Russian Paratroopers were eventually shattered.
The lead Soviet Mechanized unit in the spearhead is attacked by the German paratroopers and a German Corps. The Mech takes 4 damage and the Paratrooper 2
(not sure if the GE CORPS took any or even if it did attack, it's also possible one of the bombing runs hit the Mech instead of the Soviet Para).
South of Kaluga, the Soviet Special Forces unit takes 5 damage from an 11 strength Germany Army (with 2 pips of exp) and a Hungarian Army which took 2 damage back.
Southeast of Rzhev a Panzer Grenadier attacks a 9 strength Russian Army across a river. The Russians take 3 damage and the Germans 2 (not sure if the Grenadiers used 2 attacks or not, probably did).




Allied Turn
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear Everywhere else.

The 2 American Armies move next to Jerusalem and the Italian Army stationed there.
An American Corps moves into Beersheba.
Tripoli is occupied by an American Army.
An American Corps invades southeast of Rhodes and then walks into the town.

3 Battleships again shell the Italian Corps on the coast north of Tirana.
The UK Army in Tirana does a point of damage to the Italian Corps north of it.
A Greek Army attacks an 8 strength German Corps and does a point of damage to it, earning the Greek Army a pip of experience.

The Russians fall back in good order from their southern probing.
A Russian Corps south of Tula and the Army in Tula attack a German Corps. The Russian Corps takes a point of damage and the Army and German Corps exchange 2 points of damage.
A Soviet Mech swaps places with the Corps that attacked and exchanges 2 points of damage with the German Corps.
Then the Russian Heavy Tanks attack the same Corps and destroys it at a cost of 1 point of damage.
A Russian Army advances past the Heavy Tanks and into the gap next to a Hungarian HQ.
At the same time a Russian Mechanized unit southeast of Tula advances southward also next to the Hungarian HQ.
The Army attacks the Hungarian HQ doing 5 damage.
The Mechanized Corps then destroys the Hungarian HQ at the cost of 1 damage, it then pushes forward and does 6 damage to the Italian HQ.
Russian forces (Armored Train, Army & Light Tanks) do 6 damage to a Finnish Corps.
The Russians seize the Finnish town of Joensuu.
Back near Orel, the last Russian Mech does 5 damage to an 8 strength Italian Corps and forces it to retreat while taking 1 back.
A Soviet Corps pushes forward and does 1 more damage to the Italian Corps.
A Russian Shock Army then does 2 damage to a Hungarian Army southwest of Tula and north of the damaged Italian HQ.

American Naval Bombers scout over western France, and find no defenders in the ports of Lorient and Nantes, and Garrisons in the ports along the English Channel.

The Egyptian convoy line opens up.

The loss of Tripoli hurts Italian national morale.

Turkey swings towards the Allies upon the conquest of Rhodes (15 - 25%, unknown how much exactly).

I know there are 2 in Iraq.
There are a lot of unaccounted for German land units. I suspect a layer of units ehind that Moscow line that I can't see.

And those German Corps are damn hard for me to touch themselves. Part of the reason I'm picking on the Italians and German minors at the flank.

OK, Rannug61 did his turn; but it is a little too late to do mine.
I've updated my Jun 13, 1943 post to include the edited picture.

Allied Turn July 1, 1943

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear Everywhere else.

In Persia, the Germans take Khorramabad and Kermanshah destroying the upgraded Russian Garrisons with no losses.

The Italian Army in Jerusalem attacks the full strength American Army and does 2 damage while taking 3.

The Germans target a Greek Corps north of Monastir with 4 bomber attacks (3 Medium & 1 TAC).
A series of furious air battles are fought with British fighters taking 10 damage across 3 squadrons. 2 squadrons of German fighters each take 2 hits, all 3 Medium Bombers take 2 hits, and the TAC bomber takes 1 hit.
This followed up by attacks from an Italian Mech, a German Corps (I think) and a German Panzer which shatters the Greek Corps. The German Panzer takes 1 damage.

In the Crimea, the back and forth starts to swing again. A Panzer Grenadier attacks the 7 strength Russian Corps doing 2 damage, and the German Tigers are seen approaching just east of the Melitopol mines.
Italian Medium bombers and Tactical bombers strike at the pinching Russian Mech next to the Italian HQ, which flees, south of Tula.
2 Russian Fighters share 9 damage, while a German Fighter takes 2 hits and both Italian bombers take 2 hits. The Mech is later shattered doing 1 damage to a German Panzer.
The Russian Mech on the other wing of pincers is attacked by the German Paratrooper (and maybe by another unit?). The Mech takes 3 damage (now str 7) while the Paratrooper takes 2. The Paratrooper then pulls back a hex.
2 German Tactical bombers then strike a Russian Corps 2 hexes north of Kursk. It is attacked by other Corp(s?) and finished off by the German Panzer in Kursk, which then retreats back into the city.

My notes also say a German Panzer took 2 damage attacking a Russian Army (the Shock Army maybe?), but if it did it must've retreated as I don't see it. It might have been the one that was weakened a couple of turns ago.



Allied Turn
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear Everywhere else.

Strategic bombers strike Jerusalem doing 3 damage to the holy city (and a bit of morale & readiness damage to the defending Italian Army), while taking 1 back (the City has been upgraded to AA 1).
Tactical bombers are then sent and do 1 damage to the Italian Army.
The US Corps and 2 Armies then attack and bring the Italian Army down to a 1 strength. The Armies then move and take Haifa and Amman.

British Tactical bombers attack the Italian Mech southeast of Scutari, Albania. Surprisingly, they are not intercepted and do 2 damage to the Italians.
A 2nd wave of Tactical bombers is sent doing 2 more damage to the Italians, and 1 to the bombers.
A 3rd wave does 1 more damage to the Italian Mech, reducing it to a 5 strength.
The elite Greek Army then attacks and does 2 more damage, forcing the Italian Mech to retreat north.
HMS Formidable moves to the coast of the Greek panhandle and strikes the German Medium bombers in Sofia. The German bombers are shattered after 2 strikes, while the Formidable's air wing takes 2 damage.*
HMS Courageous launches 2 strikes at the Medium bombers in Pec. The bombers take 6 damage while the air wing takes 1.*
A less than full strength British fighter is then sent and successfully finishes off the bombers in Pec.
4 Battleships shore bombard a shell shocked Italian Corps on the Albanian Coast.**
The Greek HQ and a Corps fall back to trim their line, and another English Army shows up near Tirana.

Operation Piñata is launched.***
The US Airship draws AA fire from near the Loos and Mons mines. It takes 3 damage. Then Naval bombers fly and draw further AA fire, and nimbly evade damage.
This clears the way for the Lancasters of Bomber Command which then do 3 damage to both sets of mines.
The US 15th Air force then bombs each of the mines for 2 damage each (5 damage to both mines in total) and takes 1 point back from one of the strikes.

2 Russian Armies and a Russian Corps play tag team with attacks against a German AT unit across the Don. The AT takes 7 damage, while the Russian Corps takes 2 and one Army takes 1.
2 Soviet Armies advance on Kursk and punish the German Panzer for it's raid (and thus the loss of it's entrenchment) and for taking up inside a city. The 8 strength Panzer takes 6 damage, while the Russians take 1 & 2, respectively.
North of Orel, on the east side of the river an elite (str 11) Soviet Shock Army and Heavy Tanks advance on the German Panzers (str 9, 1 exp). The Shock Army does 2 damage and takes 1 back.
A 7 strength Russian Mech attacks the 6 strength (2 exp, 5 supply, meh morale/readiness) paratroopers that attacked them on the German's turn.
They do 3 damage and take 1 back on the first attack, the second attack is not so favorable as they destroy the paratroopers but take 3 damage (bringing them to str 3). They then fall back to recoup.
A full strength Mechanized then moves forward and attacks the Panzers once exchanging 2 damage.
The Russian JS II Heavy Tanks then attack the Panzers and destroy them outright.
A Russian Corps attacks an Italian 6 strength Corps next to it and does a point of damage, then moves south 1 hex.
A Russian Army moves pass the heavy tanks and attacks the Italian Corps for 2 damage.
A Russian 9 strength Corps then moves into the hex vacated by the other Corps and exchanges 1 damage with the Italian Corps.
A Russian Corps moves forward, north of Kursk (now that the weakened Panzers in the city don't exert ZOC preventing it) and attack. They destroy the Panzer, while taking 2 damage.
Unfortunately there is no Russian unit that can move into the city.
The Russian 8 strength Mech that attacked the Panzers the Hvy Tanks later destroyed, takes its 2nd attack against the 3 strength Italian Corps. They do 2 and take 1.
A Russian Corps that attacked the Italian Corps moves south to make way for a 7 strength Mech to move forward. It destroys the Italian Corps, but takes 2 damage. It then falls back a hex.
Improved rockets bombard Rzhev twice. This is followed by attacks from 3 Russian Armies that do 3 damage to the Special Forces unit. One of the Armies takes a point of damage back.
North of Luga, a Russian AA unit rails away and a large formation of heavy artillery takes its place.
A Russian Corps west of Narva attacks an elite, but low supply German Corps, no damage is done, but the Germans loose a level of entrenchment.
Russian Tactical bombers then attack the same Corps. They are intercepted by Finnish Fighters based near Helsinki.
Russian escorts engage the interceptors and an air battle actually slightly favors the Russians: RU FTR -2, RU TAC -1, FIN FTR -4, GE CORPS -2.
A Russian Corps then moves up and tries its luck against the German, and only removes the last entrenchment level, before falling back a hex.
Russian Heavy Tanks then move forward and destroy the German Corps, opening the road. The first Corps that started the attack is then free to move a couple of hexes along said road towards Talinn.
Katyusha rockets fire into a Finnish Corps, this is followed by attacks from Light Tanks and the Armored Train doing 6 damage to the Corps.

Allies liberate Transjordan.


* The bombers launched their attacks (on the German turn) from Pec & Sofia, so these were blind risk attacks, presuming he didn't move them after their strikes.
** You know maybe shore bombardment is a bit understrength, if it can't do a single point of damage to a unit in bad morale/readiness shape on a clear hex in 13 strikes from Battleships (12 of which are at Naval 1).
*** As cheesy as this seems, I took more damage to Strat Bombers this turn than I did back (according to the reports). I don't think using Strat Bombers to try and force Germany to put fighters in western Europe is going to work. They just don't do enough and are too costly to justify their use.

It's also a darn good (and cheap) recon unit. Even its passive detection can be useful particularly if you decide to invest in long range.

Allied Turn July 15, 1943

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear Everywhere else.

No Activity seen in Persia.

On the Greek front the Axis shuffle their line slightly, putting a 2nd unit (a GARR) next to Thessaloniki.

In the Crimea, the low supply 5 strength Russian Corps is attacked twice by a low supply Panzer Grenadier and takes 2 damage.
The Russian Corps is then attacked by a Romanian Corps, with the Romanian taking 1 damage. It is then attacked by a German Corps and forced to retreat.
The damaged AT unit near Rostov pulls back behind the line and is replaced by a 7 strength Panzer Grenadier.
A German Army attacks a Russian Army across the Don near Rostov. The Russians take 3 damage, the Germans 2.
A 9 strength Hungarian Corps moves into Kursk.
The Germans retreat out of Rzhev and trim their line down to Orel.
Tactical bombers fly unescorted against the Soviet Heavy Tanks. Their are intercepted by Russian fighters: RU FTR -1, GE TAC 2 hits, RU HVY TNK -1.
Near Leningrad, the Germans pull out of Luga. A German Corps and the Panzers are still visible, so it is presumed there is a line through the forest 2 hexes behind Luga.



Allied Turn
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear Everywhere else.

Operation Piñata continues.
The US airship takes 3 damage as do the US Naval bombers in drawing fire from the German AA near the Loos and Mons mines.
Bomber Command then hits the mines for 4 damage each (knocking them each down to 0), but takes 1 damage from the 2nd run.
American B17 bombers then hit Vichy for 3 damage, but take 1 back themselves. They elect not to make a 2nd run.

The Greek Cruiser scouts the coast of Sicily finding an Italian Corps in Syracuse, an Italian Garrison in Messina, an Italian Special Forces unit in Marsala, and a German Paratrooper (???) in Palermo.
The newly acquired Free French Light Cruiser scouts Naples and finds an Italian Garrison there.
English Tactical Bombers are intercepted on their way to strike the coastal Italian Corps. They are intercepted by German Fighters stationed in Nish. Escorting Spitfire IXs (UK FTR lvl 4) engage the Germans.
The Germans take 5 damage to their fighters (3 from UK fighters & 2 from UK TAC), while the UK fighters take 2 damage, and the UK TAC takes 1 damage. Only 1 damage is done to the Italian target.
Another engagement is fought with the German fighters taking 3 more damage, the UK fighters 2 damage and the Italian Corps 1.
A 3rd strike is not intercepted and does 2 damage to the Italian Corps.
4 Battleships again shore bombard the Italian Corps without doing any damage (nor deentrenchment btw), but manage to bring the Italian Corps down to single digit morale points.
2 UK Armies then attack the Italian Corps and do 4 damage to it (2 each) bringing it down to a strength of 2.

The US Army in Hafia moves south and destroys the 1 strength Italian Army in Jerusalem, then liberates the city.
The US Corps then moves south and liberates the port of Aqaba.
Fighters then scout the road to Ar Rutbah and find nothing along it. So it the Army in Amman liberates the town of Maan.
The last of the towns along the Nile river is liberated.

A scouting Corps spots a German AT unit in Belgorod. It then moves next to the city across a river and in a forest.
The 2 Russian Armies outside of Kursk attack the occupying Hungarian Army and do 6 damage while one of the Russians takes 1 damage.
The southern Army then swings around the south side of the city, cutting off the road south and west. A Russian Corps moves by the north and cuts off the road to Orel.
A 3rd Russian Army moves up and does 2 damage to the Hungarian. The Corps north of Kursk then destroys the Hungarian Army and one of the Russian Armies liberates the city.
The Corps that cut the road to Orel then attacks a German Garrison in a marsh hex to its east doing 3 damage and forcing it to retreat.
2 Rocket attacks are made against a Hungarian Army 2 hexes north of Orel. While no damage is done, the defenders loose their entrenchment and have their morale and readiness reduce to 32% and 41%.
A horrendous air battle is fought over the Hungarian Army. Russian fighters take 5 damage, German fighters take 4 damage, Russian Tactical bombers take 2 and the Hungarian Army takes 2 damage.
A Russian Army then attacks the Hungarian and does 2 more damage.
Then a Russian Shock Army attacks, does 4 damage and forces the Hungarian Army (str 2) to retreat.
The Russian Heavy Tanks move to the northeast of Orel and attack a German Corps north of Orel twice forcing it to retreat after taking 6 damage.
T34s (Russian Tank) flow into the hole and attack Von Bock's HQ, destroying it while taking 1 damage.
The Shock Army then moves into the forest north of the Russian Tanks, where the Hungarians formerly were.
A Russian Army moves into Rzhev.
A Russian Corps moves into the forest north of Tartu and sees a German Corps in Tartu.
Another Russian Corps cautiously approaches Talinn and finds a German Corps in the city.
The Russian Corps then moves next to Talinn and notices the Admril Scheer in port. The Corps attacks the German Heavy Cruiser and does 3 damage.
The Russians move forward slowly and take Luga and make a uniform line doing so.
The Russians shatter a Finnish Corps with the combination of 3 rocket attacks, the Armored Train, Light Tanks and a Russian Army.

Allies Liberate Palestine.

Allied Turn July 29, 1943

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear Everywhere else.

No activity seen in Persia. Though the Italian Armor is no longer visible.

No activity seen in the Greek theatre. (pun intended)

The Germans retake the Melitopol mines in the Ukraine.
The Germans launch 2 Tactical bomber raids against the Russian Tanks that destroyed Von Bock's HQ. German escort fighters take 2 hits, and each TAC bomber takes 1. A Russian fighter takes 6 damage, and the Tanks take 2.
The German line from east of Vyazma to Orel falls back out of view. Only a single German Army is left visible. I'm presuming they didn't fall back very far.
The Germans also fall back out of view of Luga.
A German Corps rails into Parnu.
The Admril Scheer leaves the Talinn port.


Allied Turn
Frozen in the Arctic. Rain in Finland. Clear Everywhere else.

The US takes Sirte, Libya leaving only 1 town (El Agheila) left.

4 Battleships shore bombard the Italian Corps on the coast north of Tirana. Morale and Readiness are significantly reduced, but nothing more.
3 Tactical bombing strikes are made against the Italian Corps on the coast north of Tirana. One group of German fighters from Nish intercepts twice facing off against one group of UK fighters.
Results: GE FTR -8, UK FTR -4, UK TAC#1 -2, IT Corps -6.*
The 2 UK Armies attack the Italian Corps shattering it with each doing 2 damage. The Army in Tirana races up the coastal road to just outside Cetinje where it encounters an Italian Garrison (lvl 2). No combat is fought.
The reconstituted 7th Armor lands at Tirana and moves north one hex, while a UK HQ moves into Tirana itself.
The Greek elite Army is rewarded with extra men and equipment.

A Russian Garrison in Araq, Persia moves forward to the crossroad and notes that Khorramabad is empty.
Near Rostov 2 Katyusha rocket attacks are launched at a Panzer Grenadier on the other side of the Don. It removes their entrenchment and does 1 damage along with morale damage.
A Russian Army then attacks across the Grenadiers across the Don, doing 2 damage and taking 3.
A group of Russian T34s moves up and attacks the Panzer Grenadiers doing 3 or 4 damage and forcing them to retreat. The Russian Tanks then fall back behind the infantry.
A Soviet Corps rushes the hole across the Don and attacks the Grenadiers doing 1 damage and forcing another retreat.
Another Russian Army moves to extend the line on the east side of the Don. Russian Katyusha and AA units slide northwest behind the Russian Armies.
A Russian Army moves south from Kantemirovka.
A Russian Cav scouts to the northwest of Voroshilovgrad and spots a German AT unit north of Stalino.
A Russian Corps plugs the gap between 2 Armies northeast of Voroshilovgrad.
A Russian Army moves south next to Belgorod on the west side of the river, while there is a Russian Corps next to the city on the east side of the river.
An 8 strength Corps moves northwest of Kursk into a forest hex and destroys a 4 strength German Garrison. Is sees a German Panzer unit 2 hexes south of Bryansk, and an Italian Corps south of the Panzers.
An Army moves into Orel, liberating the town.
Katyushas fire on a AT unit southwest of Rhzev. An Army north of the AT unit attacks it doing 3 damage and taking 1 back.
The Moscow defenders generally advance 1 hex forward, most of them staying in the forest and spy the German defensive line.
The Army in Rhzev then attacks the AT and does 3 damage to it.


* I consider these air battles wins, but I guess the computer doesn't as the UK's morale keeps slipping lower.

Allied Turn August 12, 1943

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear Everywhere else.

No activity seen in Persia. Though the Italian Armor is no longer visible.

The Germans slightly shuffle the line a bit on the Greek front.

Two German and one Romanian Army destroy the Russian Corps that dared to cross the Don near Rostov. One of the German Armies takes a point of damage.
The Germans pull back from the easternmost portion of the Don.
The elite German Army that was in front of the main line pulls back. So do the visible Panzer and Italian Corps south of Bryansk.
In the north, the Germans fall back out of sight.



Allied Turn
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear Everywhere else.

Running low on easy (western Europe) targets, the American B17s in England find that the St. Etienne mines in Vichy France are within range and strike them for 7 damage.

The Americans creep ahead taking most of Transjordan.

A UK Army and Tank destroy an Italian GARR in Cetinje. Neither takes the town, and the units have to switch initial starting places, because the tank can't get back to the hex it started in.

In Persia a Russian GARR notices that Khorramabad is unoccupied so it cautiously approaches the town and retakes it.
Another Russian GARR moves out of Hamadan and notices that Kermanshah is occupied by an Iraqi GARR, and then moves next to it.

Soviet forces advance on the German defenses along the Don near Voroshilovgrad and move next to Rostov, but no attacks are launched.
A Russian Corps moves west of Kursk into the forest and spots an Italian Corps, German Panzer and German Tiger formations to the east of Konotop.
A Russian Army attacks the German AT unit in Belgorod, doing 2 damage while taking 1.
The Russians advance on the Germans making contact all along the Moscow front. However, only 2 attacks are launched, both at a Hungarian Army. The Hungarian takes 4 damage while 2 Russian Armies take 1 & 2 damage.
The Russians advance slowly south from Luga and see a German Corps in Pskov and one to the southeast of the city.
To the west, 2 Russian Corps park next to Talinn and the German Corps occupying the city.
At Tartu a Corps swings around the city and threatens to cut the road south as another takes its place and heavy tanks also roll up next to the city.
Katyushas fire twice at a Finnish Corps behind a fortification on the coast. Then a Russian Army attacks the Corps doing 2 damage.
The Armored Train moves next to the Finnish Corps (after a Russian Corps takes the hex and then falls back) and does another 2 damage to it.
The Russian Army and Light Tanks swap hexes. The Corps is then struck by Russian Tactical bombers and the Finnish fighters intercept: RU FTR -2, RU TAC -2, FIN FTR -3, FIN CORPS -2.
The Light Tanks then attack and do 2 more damage bringing the Finnish Corps down to a 2 strength.

Soviet morale increases due to landings in Italy.

Italy suffers morale loss due to the occupation of Palermo and Syracuse.

Turkey moves towards the Allies +8%.


* The plan was to remove the Corps ZOC so that the Army south of Cetinje could also attack the Panzers.
I messed up the move of the Landing Army and had it attack, when I should've just hex swapped (even thought it was 10 strength vs. the existing Army's 8, the existing one had HQ support and better morale/readiness.
Got a bit lucky that the Greek Corps shattered the Panzers, odds predicted it would have 1 strength left.

Allied Turn October 15, 1943

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Rain in Russia. Clear Everywhere else.

The Axis do some line shuffling and reinforcing.
The only attacks are 2 German Destroyers versus the Soviet Sub, blockading Talinn. The first DD causes a dive, the second does a point of damage to the Russian Sub. Sadly this means that the port of Talinn is open again.
The 5 strength AT in Belgorod and the 2 strength Panzer to the southeast are reinforced to 7. Both are still at relatively low morale and supply 4.

Allied Turn November 6, 1943

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear Everywhere else.

The Italian Corps defending the Toe of Italy is reinforced.

The eastern side of the Greek front pulls back again to defend Sofia, Bulgaria.

In Russia, the German air force comes out to play.
North of Vitebsk a German Tactical bomber does 1 damage to a Russian Corps. I'm not sure if the bomber took a hit or not.
West of Bryansk a Russian fighter takes 3 damage defending a group of T34s. A German Fighter takes a hit and the German Tactical bombers take 2 (1 from RU FTR & 1 from Tanks), while the Tanks take 1 damage.
The cut off (7 strength) German Panzers southeast of Belgorod are put back in supply by their own efforts along with help from a Hungarian Army and a Corps of Panzer Grenadiers.
The Russian Corps is shattered but the cost is 3 damage to the Panzers, 1 to the Hungarian Army and 2 to the Panzer Grenadiers.
The heaviest counter attack is launched against the Russian tanks north of Stalino. Unescorted German Medium Bombers are intercepted by Russian fighters. The Russians take 1 damage, while an unknown amount is done to the Germans.
Italian Tactical and Medium Bombers also attack the Russian T34s. They are followed up by a German Panzer Grenadier which attacks twice and twice gets hit twice by defensive firing Katyushas.
The Russian Tanks are reduced to 1 damage (and then shattered by a German Army) while the Panzer Grenadiers take 8 damage.
Last, and least, 2 German Tactical bombers attack the Swamp King (Partisans) near Rowno.
The Germans retreat from Rostov.



Allied Turn
Frozen in the Arctic. Rain and Mud in Finland. Rain and Mud in Russia. Clear Everywhere else.

The American Corps take Marsala with the help of a Tactical bomber. One of the Corps takes a point of damage.
The Italian Corps defending the Toe is attacked by American Medium and Tactical Bombers.
This is followed up by strikes from HMS Illustrious, HMS Formidable, and USS Ranger which do a point of damage with each strike to the badly shaken unit and eventually destroy it.
The US Army in Messina moves past the Rangers to attack the Italian Garrison in Catanzro, and does 2 damage to the Garrison.
The Rangers then swap hexes with a large formation 155mm Howitzers.

3 UK Tactical bombers strike a Bulgarian Corps south of Sofia, doing 8 damage and taking 1 back to 2 of the formations.
The elite Greek Army then destroys the Bulgarian Corps.

The Russians liberate the abandoned Rostov.
The Russian Army in Belgorod and a Russian Corps destroy the 3 strength/4 supply Panzers to the southeast of Belgorod.
A 6 strength Romanian Army is attacked by 2 Russian Armies and takes 2 or 3 damage then retreats out of the forest north of Taganrog.
A Russian Corps does 2 damage to a Romanian Garrison further up the Don river.
A Russian 8 strength Heavy Armor attacks the Garrison in Konotop and does 4 damage. A Russian Corps moves south and destroys the Garrison.
The Heavy Armor takes its 2nd attack and does 4 to an Italian Corps and forces it to retreat.
A Russian Army moves into Konotop and spots an Italian HQ behind the 5 strength Italian Corps.
An 11 strength Heavy Armor moves into the forest north of Konotop and destroys a full strength but low morale German Corps to its southwest with 2 attacks.
A 6 strength Mechanized unit is then ordered into the breach. It attacks the Italian Corps, doing 3 damage and forcing it to retreat north (right next to the 11 strength heavy tanks).
Feeling bold it then attacks a full strength German Corps (supply 3) and does 3 damage to them as well.
With the hole opened by the Italian Corps retreat, (8 strength) T34s poor through the opening, attack and destroy the 5 strength Italian HQ.
The Army in Konotop then destroys the beat up (str 2) Italian Corps.
The Tanks then take their 2nd attack against the German Corps the Mech attacked, do 3 damage and force it to retreat into the forest to the southeast.
A Russian Corps moves into the abandoned town of Sumy, then south along the road next to Kharkov. It attacks the Garrison in the city doing 2 while taking 1.*
A 7 strength Army then moves next to the city and destroys the Garrison, but doesn't have the movement points left to take the city.*
East of Parnu, a Russian Heavy Tank advances, does 3 damage to a German Corps then falls back to it's original position.
A Mechanized unit then moves forward and does 5 damage to the German Corps, forcing it to retreat south of Parnu while taking 2 back.
Pskov is shelled by heavy artillery 3 times and then attacked by a Shock Army and 3 Armies. The defending German Corps takes 5 damage and does 1 back to 2 of the Armies.
In Finland Katyushas attack the Finnish Army on the north part of the line.
This is followed by a Russian Corps exchanging 1 damage with the Finnish Army then hex swapping with the Light Tanks who do another 2 damage to the Army.
The Russian Army then does 3 damage to the Finnish Army.
The Armored Train then does 2 damage to the Finnish Corps on the southern end of the line.

A Sub raids the UK to USSR Convoy for 13 MPP

* I made a bit of a greedy mistake. The Army should've attacked first, and the Corps should've skipped getting Sumy, attacked 2nd and move into Kharkov.

Allied Turn November 28, 1943

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Rain in Russia. Clear Everywhere else?

A German Corps moves away from Kavalla to south of Sofia to protect the Bulgarian Capital.

A Hungarian Army retreats into Kharkov (I'm regretting now my poor move in not being able to take it last turn).
The Germans and the Romanians dress their Taganrog to Stalino line.
The line south of Smolensk curls back towards the strategic city.
A German Corps attacks a Russian Mech east of Parnu, doing 2 damage and taking 1.
North of Smolensk, a Russian Army takes 5 damage and retreats as German forces attack it. A Panzer Grenadier takes 1 damage back from the Army.

Ukrainian Nationalists rise up and damage a Russian Armor, Mechanized, HQ and the Swamp King (Partisan).



Allied Turn
Frozen in the Arctic. Rain in England. Mud in Finland. Clear Everywhere else.

The Italian Garrison north of Catanzaro is softened up by 4 Battleships and then destroyed by 2 American bombers (1 Medium & 1 Tactical)
The Italian Garrison in Catanzaro is shelled by howitzers and then destroyed by the US Army to its south. The Army advances through the town and into the hex north of it that was cleared by the bombers.
A Light Cruiser finds an Italian Corps in Salerno and an Italian Garrison in Naples.

3 UK Tactical bombers go after the German Corps south of Sofia, before it can entrench, and do 9 damage to it. One bomber takes 2 damage, and another 1.
The elite Greek Army then shatters the remnants, and a UK Corps moves into the hex. Even though Sofia is occupied by the Bulgarian HQ, it is not attacked as it has 5 levels of entrenchment.
The other Greek Army attacks Kavalla and does 2 damage.
7th Armor (UK Tanks) drives along the road and supports the advancing UK Corps to the southeast.
The Polish destroyer moves to blockade the port to Cetinje.

A Russian Corps and Cavalry destroy a Garrison along the Don, south of Kharkov.
2 Russian Armies attack the 9 strength Hungarian Corps in Kharkov doing 4 damage, and taking 1 back to 1 Army.
3 Corps then move next to Kharkov, surrounding it on 5 sides and cutting it off.
A Corps moves south of Konotop and finds a 4 strength German Corps low on supply and Morale. An 8 strength Heavy Tank then rumbles south and destroys the German Corps, but takes a point of damage back.
A Russian Army and elite Heavy tank advance towards Kiev and destroy a German Army along the way. Both the Heavy Tank and Army take a point of damage in doing so. A German paratrooper is spotted northeast of Kiev.
An Army and 2 Mechanized units advance on and take the town of Gomel, destroying 2 Garrisons along the way. Both Mech units take a point of damage.
South of Smolensk, an elite Shock Army does 3 damage to a 9 strength German Corps and takes 1 back.
3 Russian Corps attack a German Cavalry division north of Vitebsk. They do 6 damage bringing the Cavalry unit down to a strength of 1 and it flees southeast towards Smolensk.
2 of the Corps then advance south on the outskirts of Vitebsk, just behind the river. There is now only a single rail line feeding all the units defending Smolensk.
East of Parnu, the 6 strength Mech retreats behind the lines.
Pskov is shelled and bombed by Russian Tactical bombers. The former removes entrenchment the later does a point of damage.
This is followed by a human wave attack, starting with a Shock Army and followed by no less than 4 regular Armies.
They combine to do 7 damage (with 3 being done by the Shock, and 1 each from the rest), bringing the defenders down to a 2 strength but they hold on. The Armies take 5 damage in total (3 take 1 dmg, and 1 takes 2 dmg).
In Finland, the Russians concentrate on the northern Corps and shatter it after attacking it with Katyushas, Light Tanks, Army and a Corps. Sadly the mud prevents the Russians from advancing into the hex.
The Armored Train only does 1 damage to the southern Corps without the help of the rockets removing entrenchment.

Turkey continues moving toward the Allies +12%

Allied Turn December 20, 1943

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Snow & Mud in Finland. Rain and Mud in Russia. Frozen in Europe. Rain in Greece?

The Bulgarian HQ and a Romanian Corps swap hexes so the Corps is in Sofia. The Bulgarian HQ then moves to the north.

The defense of Smolensk falls back another hex from west to east and south to north.
The Axis line falls back and appears to spread out a bit more in the south.
A German Garrison and Tactical bomber strike the Swamp King Partisan for 1 damage (via the TAC).



Allied Turn
Frozen in the Arctic. Frozen in Finland. Clear in England. Rain and Mud in Europe. Mud in Russia. Clear Everywhere else.

2 Light Cruisers scout the west Coast of Italy.
4 Battleships shore bombard the Italian AA gun northwest of Rome guarding the port of Civitavecchia
The USAF Piñata, flying from Sicily, scouts the center of Italy and spots the RM Roma (BB) in Ancona.
4 Amphibs attack the AA and it is finally destroyed by a landed US Army. US Rangers and 2 Corps make further landings to the north and south of Rome cutting the city off.*
The USS Ranger and the HMS Illustrious then move into calm coastal waters on the west and east side of Italy, respectively, and then sink Roma with 4 air strikes. Ranger takes 4 damage to her air wing, while Illustrious takes 1.
American Medium and Tactical bombers from Sicily strike the Panzers in Rome each taking a point of damage and only removing the Panzers entrenchment and reducing morale/readiness.
The Rangers and 2 Corps then all attack Rome, each attacker takes 1 damage while the Panzers take 6 in total.
2 US Armies destroy the Italian Garrison south of Taranto.

A UK Army destroys a Hungarian Garrison between Pec and Cetinje.
A Greek Corps and Army destroy a Bulgarian Garrison in Kavalla. The Greek Army takes a point of damage and the Greek Corps liberates the Greek town.
A UK Corps advances northwest, to the southeast of Sofia, while the UK Armor takes it place south of Sofia. The Corps attacks the Bulgarian HQ doing 3 damage and taking 1.

New Model B17Gs attack Tikrit, Iraq doing 3 damage to the town. German Fighters are met by American Fighters with the Germans taking 4 damage (1 from bomber 3 from fighter) and the American fighters taking 1 damage.
A 2nd strike is made at Ramadi, Iraq doing 4 damage to the town. The same German fighters intercept taking 3 damage from a different squadron of American fighters who take 2 damage.
Another wing of B17Gs attack Baghdad doing 4 damage to the city. Their 2nd strike hits Najaf Iraq doing 5 damage.
The American ground forces creep a bit closer to the Germans in Iraq.

A Russian Corps advances on Khorramabad, Persia and attacks the Iraqi Garrison doing 2 damage. The Russian Corps is defended by an AA unit behind it.
Another Russian Corps spots that Kermanshah is unoccupied and then rushes in and seizes the town.
The Russians advance west a hex in south taking an abandoned Taganrog. Weather (rain and mud) prevents making contact with the enemy line.
2 Armies attack Kharkov and do 3 damage to the defending Hungarian Army, while 1 of the Russian Armies takes 1 damage.
An elite Corps moves north to completely surround Kharkov and does another point of damage to the Hungarian Army.
This weakens the Hungarians enough for the other 3 Russian Corps to attack it bringing the Hungarians down to a 1 strength while the 3 Corps take 1, 1 & 2 damage doing so.
A Mech and a Corps move next to Chernigov and do 3 damage to the Hungarian Corps, while the Mech takes 1 back.
4 Russian Corps attack Vitebsk and destroy the Garrison defending the town, one of the Corps then liberates it as the Smolensk defenders continue to be squeezed.
The Finnish Corps behind the fortification is attacked by Katyusha rockets, a Corps, Light Tanks and a new formation of T34s. The defenders take 4 damage and the Light Tanks earn themselves a 3rd pip of experience.
The Russian Corps advanced to the north of the fortifications before attacking, making the first advancement westward in some time. The position is a bit precarious next to 2 Finnish Corps and a Finnish Army though.

Turkey to the Allies +10%

German sub raids the UK -> USSR convoy for 11 damage.

* I had 3 options: 1) Attack the Panzer in Rome directly, 2) Go for Naples or 3) Attack the AA and cut off Rome.
1. Would have been very 'iffy' I think. It would have also made for a much more expensive proposition in that I would have had to soak off the AA fire with the blimp (and wouldn't have found that the Roma moved south
and made herself vulnerable) and Carrier Air. Worse if I used the Battleships to try and reduce the Panzer's morale & readiness they would have taken a lot damage from Rome making an already expensive expedition much more so.
Lastly I don't know if it would have worked. Not sure the Amphibs would do enough and then landing only 2 units to the south to attack with. Maybe it would have worked, but if it didn't it would be a disaster.
Going for Naples was the safest bet, but had the least payoff for the investment of putting all those troops back on Amphibs (one of the Corps was on a long range Amphib from Libya).

Question for the readers:

Do you want me to replace the 1942 edited pictures with the complete (Allied view) pictures?
