Alright so winter really took a toll on me and you will notice it in the AAR. I will post a really bland post, mainly, you will notice the vague progress of the enemy and whatnot. There wont be much written. So I guess thats that. Overall though, the enemy is doing good progress, he is trying to pocket my troops in the South and probably cause even more chaos than it is already. He has definitly spot my weakest point and he is trying to take advantage of it. I am frantically trying to bring good troops down there to save as much as I can. My Pz.Gr are a mess, HQs and Divisions are so mixed up, I had to reorganize a lot of divisions to random HQs. It will be a lot of work to re-organize everything this coming summer. In my last turn, December is almost over ( its the last turn of December). So things should go a bit better from now on. I am able to rout enemy units in some parts of the front. I just attacked a 3 stack Soviet position in the North and was able to rout them ( Yippie ). Before winter, I concentrated a lot on smashing is cavalry divisions and I think I might have routed some ? (Im not sure as it was a while ago) but either way, I am not seeing a lot of Cav in action. Iv seen one or two divisions in the South. And maybe 1 in the Center. He his bringing forwards lots of Tank divisions and Mot. Div. wich wont go far. Historically, the winter was just as bad for the Soviets than for the Germans as we now learned with recent documents being made public on the soviet side ( or so says Glantz, and I believe him). So facing those tanks divisions is not something I am particularly afraid of. in my last turn ( turn 28) I have defeated one of his spearhead cav division, it was a division alone and I smash trough it with a Panzer Div and Mot.Div. I had brought forward in emergency ( as Im trying NOT to use any of my Pz.Div.
The Pz.Div. are trying to retreat by trains in cities in the rear but the need for me to bring reinforcement to the South, and my rail lines going there are long ( I have to go trough Warsaw almost ) is taking most of my rail points. Nonetheless, reinforcement arrives at a steady rate in the south and resistance is being made possible. Partisans are starting to appear in the North and are being really annoying but...what can I do..Oh yeah, KILL THEM ALL AND THEIR FAMILIES AND THEIR VILLAGES !! I will show them what it means to go against our regime. It was announced yesterday that every partisan attacks would result in 10 randomly chosen male age 16 to 45 to be hung by a tree. Hopefully this will let the population know not to anger us (Although, keep in mind, this is just for the sake of writing. My wife's Grandfather actually battled the Nazis in partisan groups in Hungary while taking care of his wife and child ( her father) so dont think for a second that I support Nazis or their ideologies, thanks) ( Historically, this is what the German thought, in reality, it did the contrary, more people went up in arms against the Nazi Regime as their brutal and cold occupation could be felt everywhere. Even the sectors in the North who were pro-German and who welcomed the Germans at first, eventually went to fear the Germans and to fight them.) Nonetheless, I hope you all enjoy the pictures that are coming ...
We will start with Frontline pictures to get an overall look. Iv left out the info bar so you can make up the turn yourselves but the whole thing goes from turn 19 to 28 in most place of the frontline
What I think is cool from my armor being eliminated is that one of the Pz.Div is resupplying with Soviet equipment. Here I have an armor division filled with T-34s, BT-7s, BA-20s. I will use this Division to smash into something important, with the enemy's own weapon...niark niark niark.
