SOUTH SOVIET ZONE: clear skis, hard ground conditions.

ATTACK!

I have a fully rested panzer army and many good high morale infantry divisions. We have high hopes.

Here we push straight out to start things off

Crimea

I finally bomb the port and get 38% damage. His AA here has been doing a good job shooting down my bombers.

My intention was to fan left to the sea and trap those troops.

But then I saw chance to make a pocket on the right side near the Don.

This was a major over the Don river attack by the 30th infantry division, morale 93.

I too launch a mud rescue attack to save the 25th mech.

It needed to be saved most and I had the most tank power near it.

At first, after bombing, I actually accidentally launched a relief attack on the hex above this. I think my finger slipped.

It was a close win but I had used up most mp;s.

I then moved in tanks and did this hasty, which worked. The beaten Russian tank corp must have been really raw recruits.

I think the 25th would have been defeated in next turn if not relieved here.

This attack in mud was solely to allow the rr to continue building north. It had been zoc locked.

Russian fail to break into and relieve all 3 major pockets.

Bitburg has not retreated.

Massive number of unsupplied Russian units.

No pressure on lower advance into Caucasus, nor attempt to convert empty German hexes back to Russian.

This unit had been doing garrison duty at Kaluga all winter. and b/c closer than 10 hexes to Germans, its morale never went up.

Finally I move them away to this city. I await the morale gain.

heavy Russian air defense. We are closer to air parity here than elsewhere.

But my intercepts in battles is still causing heavy Russians plane kills.

and hence gained is a new and improved pocket with tastier treats.

I think--- 7 cav corp, 3 tank corp and 2 shock armies.
