New moves from Ian and this is the northern front lines and you can see for yourself that there's been no movement of the lines but there has been some arty bombardments back and forth. I'm waiting for Ian to push and he's waiting for me and nothing much is happening up here. I've been conducting an inventory of the combat worthy infantry divisions remaining and I'm not finding healthy numbers. I'm thinking of railing all the broken divisions to Minsk because of the great supply level and it's proximity to where most of the partisans spawn and the excellent rail network there. There's no strategic reserve and only a few Panzer divisions as local reserves, near the middle of the map, sitting on a rail. Eleven aircraft units respawned at Berlin and I moved them to forward positions; most of them were fighters. About 6 LCU's respawned and I'm letting them refit in Berlin. Most of them were cherry red, low on supply, and "untried" instead of "veteran". I don't always check for that when I put attacks together so the first combat for those units might not always be successful and their assigned proficiency might not be all that great. Maybe I should stand the "untried" units out in their formation as a marker to me that units that need special handling are present. And try to find an easy combat for them. Chase down a partisan with them, those are easy.
