The start of turn 361. Relief operations are coming from the north and south. Steiner may yet come to the rescue

The German army still has some teeth. I have counter attack and surrounded the 8th Mech Corps 67th Mech Bde. Now can I hold the line while Willie mounts a relief operation next turn?

First of all congratulations to the both of you for playing it out this far. I'm not sure but that may be a first for the new release of TOAW 4 [ the first FITE2 to be played to the end ]. And I'm dying to know what the Soviet supply situation looks like and where in the world Berlin is in this image and how many turns are left to play?
Things like that.

Hi Larry, you will have to ask Willie for his supply picture. However his rail heads are now 10 kms behind the front attacking from the east and south east. There are no yellow broken rail lines there. If you look at the picture for turn 360 above I placed a black circle on the victory hex.

Hi Larry I forgot to add that Willie has to get to that victory hex before turn 400 to win. The next turn will be 364 so he has 36 turns to advance 20kms. I am thinking that the game will end between turn 370 and 375 as I do still have a couple of very powerful divisions still within the Berlin defensive area. I used 2 of them to destroy the 8th Mech corp.

desperate times call for desperate action. I have launched a number of counter attacks and have been able to push Willie back in a number of places. This is the summary of the battles

In the north the front is very fluid I have been launching desperate attacks with the aim of drawing away some of Willie's forces surrounding Berlin. The result that I have been able to surround 4 Regts. The question is will Willie mount a relief or keep his eyes on the prize. From the pictures above I think he can do both.

A short turn with very fierce counterattacks. I was able to push Willie back 5kms on a 10 km front.

In my counter attacks I have bumped up against some of Willie's arty. This picture gives you some idea of the arty that Willie has lined up against my front line and the reason why he has been able to push forward so fast. I think there is more in the hexes that I can not see.

You have done your job making it into 1945!

Looking back was there something you could have done different to make a significant difference?

Hi Tom,
This was one of the original test versions. In this game I did not get as far as I had in some previous games and my casualties were a lot heavier. I found the Russians to be far too strong / Germans too weak.

One of the suggestions that I had made to Soren was for the German player to be given some free attack bonuses. I found that if I was able to take the objectives set out in the rules I was not in a position to take advantage of the attack bonuses that followed. In the current version the German gets 3 offensive chits in 1941.

I have not tested these "chits" yet but if they are as I suggested then I would not attack on 3 fronts but switch back and forth between the 3 objectives. This would allow me to bring maximum force to bear while keeping the Russian player guessing to a point.

I have just received Willies turn back and from his email I think I have just lost.

Ah well there is always the next game. One day I will win.

I will load his turn and post some pictures shortly

cheers
john
