I am curious about what you think. I am assuming both player are equally skilled. As soviets I think trying to defend all 3 fronts at the same time is a recipe for disaster. What do you think?

"He who defends everything defends nothing."

And by the time you can defend everything you should no longer be defending.

Whats a viable defense against Fall Blau summer 1942 vs. a human player? Fall back and give ground with speed bump sacrifice units thrown in the way? Counterattack vulnurable spearhead panzers? Interdiction airplanes trying to slow down? What else?

Equally skilled is very different from german highly skilled player. Against a german player which has a good level or below, you can defend on all fronts, and you will loose on some parts but it's possible. Against a very skilled player, it's the great run. but in practice many german players leave the game before the end of barbarossa if you defend

My sense is that a reasonably skilled German can take at least one objective (Leningrad, Moscow, and the Donbass) in 1941 regardless of Soviet defenses. Two is a stretch unless the Germans are really skilled. All three can only result from complete failure on the part of the Soviet player. This doesn't mean that you shouldn't defend all the objectives, though. If you make one really easy, maybe that will enable the Axis to take two when they otherwise would only have been able to take one.
