Stalingrad was SUCH an inefficient operation for the Soviets. They used much more force around the city than was necessary, took ferocious casualties, overestimated their logistics, underestimated the Germans quality and leadership.
All of this culminated in Mansteins February offensive that recaptured the initiative for the German.
That being said, 'useless' was Pelton's dramatic license and the adjective should not be taken as Gospel.
I realize it's not programmable at this point but it would be interesting to be able to spend APs, as Soviet, to gain an odds shift after the 42 date.
I do agree with Soviet player who said there is too little FOW in game.
