January 1947 - Southern Front

On to Berlin! Or as far as we can get.

The trapped Italians and Hungarians are almost as far away from the Axis front lines as Paris is to Berlin. I'm not even going to go after them any more - they deserve to survive the war.

January 1947 - France

The Western Allies are attacking further North than towards Paris. Why? You have the airpower to level it (not that I want that - have been there several times and LOVE it!). Just take it would you and let's see if anything remarkable happens.

January 1947 - Greece

Axis eliminates Geek Partisans. Americans still barely get out of Turkey.

Western Allies drive North and take the Mons mine. Unfortunately, they get cut off immediately. What's worse, is that the Axis powers are bashing Allied lines near Paris, and they might break before long. Well that would suck.

April 1947 - Moscow Front

The drive to Riga continues. Hope I have enough gas left!

Trying to get into Romania, specifically targeting Transylvania to kill the Vampire that is keeping all these troops alive millions of miles behind my lines.

April 1947 - France

Oh no! The Western Allied line before Paris is buckling. You're not going to tell me that we'll be driven into the sea this late!

Oh, by the way, that is the German BB Hindenburg strutting its stuff in the English Channel (or Manche if you are French - do not wish to offend here).

Because it is halfway between England and France, I have asked the populace of both sides to yell and say nasty things to it. Maybe then it will withdraw. Nothing else seems to work.

Late April 1947 - Moscow Front

Not much happening in Finland or Leningrad. Russia can't get to Sweden so that experiment cannot be tried.

Riga falls so Army Group North and a large portion of Army Group Center is cut-off from mainland Europe. Supply issues still hamper my efforts.

The Germans counter-attack in the West and drive a wedge between Allied armies. Le Mans falls in the German effort.

Great AAR.

It looks like the Allied AI is not very good at using HQs. None in France is a very bad thing. Three are sitting in the UK.

It also has spent a lot of MPP on garrisons. I count 9 UK garrisons in your last image. I bet there are more elsewhere on the map. I don't think I purchased 9 total for the UK in my last two games (39-44 for allied wins).

The AI also should be moving the two Corps and two armies to France where they can do some good. Only one is on a port now so it appears it has no plans to do so.

I think some AI help is needed to make it fight better and deploy troops more efficiently. Looking forward to future patches. I’m sure this can be addressed.

Russian forces reach Romania and take Galati. Otherwise I just move as far as I can.

End of Game

Well here is the screenshot that confirms the obvious - Stalemate.

I have to go thru my notes and try to write up my thoughts this weekend.

Thanks for all of you who watched - I have a head-to-head AAR going as well and already we are feeling the tension of a live opponent. Great game!

Tried to change the header for the whole string - the war goes on until May of 1947 - does not end in 46'.

Failed.
