Third Reich 1942 - 1945

This is a monster scenario covering the whole of Europe and NA campaign from 1942 on Division level. It stretches from France to the Caucasus, and from Murmansk to Alexandria.

Overall view T1



The game started in May 1942, just before the 2nd Battle of Kharkov and a month before Case Blue on the Eastern Front. In North Africa, Rommel about to unleash his attack on Tobruk. Turn 1 started with “Ceasefire”, both sides can redeploy troops to adjust the grand strategy.

In Eastern Front, AGN / AGC started with battered divisions, having survived the Soviet Winter Offensive onslaught. This is Velikie Luki - Rzevh - Moscow area.

How many troops can both sides redeploy to adjust their strategy.

Almost all troops can be redeployed, though rail and sea transport capacity is limited.

For Axis player, some garrison troops are in garrison mode (duh) - Hungarian, Rumanian, and German troops in Norway / France. On the Eastern Front, only units around Kharkov is in garrison mode and can't be redeployed until turn 2.

Most of the troops in France are "static division" with only 1 movement value, so no point in redeploying them.

Turn 2
Turn 2 marks the start of Hostilities. There were some shuffling around, but not many. Both sides keep their starting positions. The Allied launch modest airstrike and start bridge bombing in Western Europe, but suffer heavy casualties. The Axis is on the offensive on 3 locations

Yelets
Among all Axis troops in the Eastern Front, AGS is the most combat-ready. 2nd and 4th Panzer Armee, supported by 2nd Armee strike Soviet line near Yelets against Bryansk Front, crippling the 48th Army, and 13th Army.





Voroshilovgrad

Some limited attack are launched by 1st Pz Armee and 17th Armee against Soviet 12th Army.





Tobruk

Rommel also went on the offense. Both sides actually have almost equal in terms of number, the only advantage Rommel has is readiness, but supply will soon be an issue. DAK must strike hard and fast to have any chance of conquering Tobruk.
