The first attack was on the Italian infantry that ended up by Florence, it retreated after a German garrison assault, then retreated further after an AH cav assaulted it, amazingly the 4 strength infantry only lost 3 and survived.! As a result my cav was not connected to the rest of the line leaving it exposed to isolation, so flew in an AH fighter squadron to fill the gap, plus gave CP an excellent view of what lays ahead (5 LOS). Next finished off the Italian artillery with infantry capturing it's former position. This allowed a reserve infantry to surge ahead to flank the remaining Italian infantry with general. The second major attack here was to take out the Italian cav to the southeast of Milan for the French had already occupied that city. With help from air-power a strong infantry assault caused the cav to retreat, the retreating cav was finished off by an AH Garrison, this move cut the rail-line to Rome/Florence from French and English reinforcements. No doubt reinforcements would be arriving soon as a result of Toulon's recapture and elimination of my garrison there. Performed a minor attack on the Italian general in case it wanted to charge the garrison that is nearly surrounding it. Moved up German fighters and had room to RR German artillery to support this front. Deployed fresh AH garrisons by Trento and a fresh German fighter by Munich, also RR a AH garrison to near Zagreb. So far CP has only captured 1 Italian city with this huge offensive.. Did zep bomb Genoa from Stuttgart and Cetinje knocking down the Italian fighter some and robbing the Italians of some PP. No sign of Italian reinforcements yet, however I am sure they will be arriving next turn..
