Hey guys, sorry I couldnt write anything for turn 10, I had lots prepared in my computer, so I will just throw the scribbles I had, and some pictures.
Turn 9 Reflections:
14 August 1941, second week of operation.
3rd panzer group is making progress towards Peno. Original objective of Nelidovo scrapped.
Hopeful outcome to encircle troops in cooperation with North's 16th Army. Steady push along
the whole front as to detect enemy weaknesses.
Gomel was captured and 18th Pz. Div crossed the river. Possible push next turn.
Peno offensive will probably have to be cancelled as enemy seems to be retreating en masse.
Possible next objective is Rzhev ( for moscow), or Torzhok ( for cooperative encirclement
with 16th Army)"
Turn 10 Central Front:
"Orders has been given to capture Rhzev but ultimately, it was decided solely by Central Front Commander
to ignore the orders. The idea to pocket troops in cooperation with North Front Commander was too big.
If the pocket failed, the objective would shift to Torzhok.
The soviets most likely think Im going for Rzhev, my own commander thinks Im going for Rhzev. I expect the element
of surprise and confusion will play in my favor to later take Moscow from a Nortern approach. The idea is to encircle
Moscow after all, and not assault it. Going by the Moskva-Volga Canal will ensure a easy approach to surround the city.
The continued advance towards Torzhok is doing well. Approximately 6,000 Soviet soldiers were killed.
The 3rd Pz. Gr. is advancing unhindered, but at a slow pace. Papa Hoth is extremely close to the frontline,
in fact, he his part of the frontline. A dangerous position for his HQ, yet, he his not afraid. War, is war.
This is where boy becomes men, and where men show their worth.
Plans were just being made about moving 2nd Pz.Gr at Smolensk and race for Berlin. Pression would be put in the North and West of Moscow."
