Some breaks at Tula. But because I expected a push here, I am not yet willing to withdraw. I counter attack the units that moved into the contested hex, reinforce the shoulders, and occupy the 2 hexes behind it with strong units to dig.
I think counter attacking certain hexes, with as much force as possible, is important. It denies easy follow up attacks next turn, inflicts damage to men, materiel, morale and fatigue, and in the best case routs units out. I do have a hold here and there, but these holds teach me valuable lessons on the initial CV ratios I need during blizzard for a comfortable attack.
