Cfant (sorry I do not know your Christian name) it is not over until the fat lady sings and she not currently in the building.

This is a summary of how I current see things. Willies rail heads are at 123,327 & 126,315 & 139,327 & 151,363.

His closest units are on the 74 hex line (closest is at 74,329) and he has to get to 49,324 in 71 moves to win, 82 moves for a draw and after that I win. With all my previous MLRs Willie has taken at least 2-3 moves to break the line. Once he has made a hole I have had to step back.

The current situation is different in that there is no place in the centre that he can break in. In the centre each hex is held by a Bn+ with Hexes closet to 49,324 filling up with Regt's. I also have 3 rings of antitank guns around Berlin. There is no need to step back. 25 hex lines with 2-3-4-5 (?) turns per line. There is also a super river to cross.

To the south he can fight his way through the MLR which is now 3 hexes deep. But I am now starting another MLR between the current MLR and the Berlin defensive area. He is yet to make contact in the south. 8-10 turns before he is ready to attack there?

In the north he is still 20 hex lines away and then he has to fight in a 3 hex corridor that how has 4 lines of defence and improving.

Also I am now on interior lines and it is easy for me to move my reserves whereas once Willie commits to one line of attack it will not be so easy to shift his effort.

Of cause he could wait until he builds up on all three sides so I am spread very thinly. But that will take time and does he have enough?

This game will go down to the line. Last time I played Willie I only lost by 20 something turns and that was because I made a mistake from which I could not recover.

But having said that DO NOT place any money on me winning as I am not that confident. Yet.

Wow, sounds like a plan. A good one actually You are experienced in this scenario, so I guess you get your numbers right. But please keep in mind, that the Soviets have LOTS of troops and can rotate. If I was your opponent, I would not wait everything to be perfect to attack, but start immidiatly to wear down your defensed, while my best troops rest and prepare. But we will see - it will be a heartbeat final

Wonderful game so far. Looks like it's coming down to the wire as to who wins. I'm proud of both of you for playing this game so long.

This is an overview of the southern part of the map with units turned off. No free kicks here for Willie. As can been seen from the panel I do still have some strong forces down here. The question is should I attack and just leave the burden to Willie.

I wouldn't pull out from the fortified MLR to allow the Soviets to fight you in the open and closer to their supply points.

I think Willie is running on the smell of an oily rag down south but I also think there are far to many units to much damage. So yes I decided to stay put and let Willie carry the burden.

What kind of troops breached the first line? Did the Soviets put the tanks forward, or did they send infantry first? Were there a lot of artillery?

Over to you Willie. I never watch the play back. At the end of the turn it was only infantry that was up against the next row of hexes.

The start of turn 334 and as Willie said in his email "A poor turn for mother Russia".


Willie was only able to make 2 small advances of 1 hex in the centre and 3 hexes in the south.

Last turn I was able to push Willie back and surround 801st rifle regt and reduce it to about 20% of its strength. Willie's relief operation did not work and this turn I should be able to destroy it.

The start of turn 335. Willie has 65 turns to win. Is he starting to feel the pressure or is there a red tidal wave that I can not see coming?

What is the air war like? Is there any interdiction by the Red Air Force or are they using air power as flying artillery? Is there any German air power left?

Not being able to leverage its numbers to open as many "fronts" as possible can be disastrous for the Red Army.
