LOL. I know it is. I did something incredibly stupid in the North, splitting forces to go both East and North to "wrap around" Leningrad. As a result I didn't have enough force in either direction. In the South I circled the Pripyat marshes using far too many Panzer corps for the job and as a result I again had insufficient forces to drive East. I am tempted to start over - this was after all my first attempt at the game (don't we all just jump into the campaign?)
I restarted my German main campaign(normal) maybe a dozen times to the point where I have the first 5 turns mastered(my opinion). I'll run into organized Soviet defense at the Dnepr in the Center, Novgorod in the north and Zhitomir in the south around turn 3-4. On my current campaign it's turn 7 and the Soviets have 1.3 million total losses to my 139,000, and I'm about to close another large pocket at the gates of Kiev which will nearly wipe out all Soviet resistance on my side of the Dnepr in the south around Kiev.
I'd like to think I doing well and maybe you can compare with me to gauge how well you are doing. I never played past turn 20 yet, because I keep restarting every time I begin to understand something new about the rules...
There is another way to look at it though. Since this is your first campaign you might want to keep playing on and simply deal with the situation you are in. Not knowing what to expect adds another dimension to the game. After all, the Germans couldn't restart their campaign every time they experienced something that didn't go their way!
