The AAR is now up to Turn 78, but I haven't had time to write the detail.
I have just had a breakthrough on the West coast, although I know there are more Axis units coming down the coast road and unless I can get all the way up to LIVORNO, there will not be enough supply coverage to push much further North on this front.
In the East the AI has just taken a step back with all the blocking units, the significance of that is that I will have to move forward before I can launch an attack. I have spent the last few turns loading units with 'combat supply' in preparation for an attack and I will now have to burn up fuel, which I don't have much of, moving forward into contact.
I need to capture ANCONA to have a port to supply any further advance in the East and the AI is determined to delay that capture for as long as possible.
I am trying to move the Commando Brigade, near Lago di Bolsena to the port of CIVITAVECCHIA, to be used in a landing attempt to capture LIVORNO, ahead of the armoured units hoping to push North along the coast, but I cannot even spare the fuel to move that small unit right now, with the other commitments there are.
There is just not enough supply to attack on both coastal fronts at the same time and even when there is the chance of a breakthrough, there is not the fuel to get enough units moving, but it is all frustratingly realistic.
