Turn 78: August 14, 1942

Allied offensives continue in Scotland and Libya.
Somewhat surprisingly we lose a corps in Libya.

Scotland has excellent defensive terrain, I have no intention of counter-attacking here.
Reinforcements are arriving, Spanish and Italian.

The Allies leave Oslo. Norway was probably just meant as a diversion.
We'll let the Finns garrison, they don't really have much else to do.

Things are not going well in Libya. The British are remarkably strong even when deprived of, well, Britain.
I don't really want to but I suppose we'll have to send some reinforcements.

Things are however going well in Russia. In the north we shatter a corps and an army,
and maul many more units. There is literally nothing between our lead panzers and Moscow
right now, but that will change in the Allied turn of course. We even risk losing a panzer
or two if SillyFlower can muster a counter-attack, but he's looking really weak. All the units
he'd need are busy on the northern frontlines.

I'm very happy with the progress we've made here. Our northern forces are drastically weaker
in air support and tanks compared to the south.

In the south Italian paratroopers help us shatter an army, and Zhukov is killed!
We've achieved our objectives, and from now on we'll just go for whatever weak units
we can target. If our northern forces swing south, we may attempt to ford the Dnieper.

Our panzer units are quite tired though.

I end the turn with a taunt for the Allied commander. Never under-estimate psychological warfare!

Here is a look at casualties so far in the war:

Turn 79: August 8, 1942

We lose two divisions in Scotland. The Soviets attack the Italian
paratrooper and score a Pyrrhic victory.

The situation in Scotland is stabilized. More Italian troops will be sent here,
as they are withdrawn from the east.

In Norway we attack but fail to take Bergen.

In northern Russia we shatter two mech corps. I'm surprised by the lack of
resistance here, I think the Soviets may be running out of reserves. A paratrooper
helps us advance towards Kaluga. Then 2nd and 8th panzers are used sparingly, ready
for one last push before the weather strikes.

The 24th corps is railed in from southern Russia.

In the south we go all in against the Soviet 1st mech corps. It costs heavily, especially for the Italians,
but we make a crossing. I am expecting him to counter-attack, exhaust what few reserves he has, and then we can
surge across next turn.

The Italians will be leaving, ready to face the Western Allies in Britain, Spain, or wherever necessary.

I left a gap in our lines in the remote chance that SillyFlower is silly enough to come through it.

Here is the current balance of forces. The British are annoyingly strong despite their losses.

Turn 80: September 11, 1942

The UK invades eastern England and overruns two interceptors.

It's bad news but at the same time he sacrifices a unit.

We finally eliminate the Russian fleet. Every turn the Soviet air force has been bombing either our
fleet or the poor Finns, with little success. I suppose it gives them experience.

In northern Russia we take Vitebsk. Our spearhead here is exhausted;
the 5th panzer is railed in from the south.

In the south we take Dnepropetrovsk. I decide against trying to ford the river again,
we're on a good defensive winter line.

However in Libya the situation is critical. We'll send a panzer and some air units next turn.

Italy builds a small corps.

Turn 81: September 25, 1942

The Allies land at Belfast and eliminate our division there.

We evacuate Ireland. Axis reinforcements are arriving, we aim to have at least a small
corps in each port.

In northern Russia the rain comes, and we decide to just not move at all.
Not like they can counter-attack in this weather.

In the south we have 4 panzers on the front lines, not where they should be.
We somehow have to conjure up 4 infantry corps to replace them.

In Africa things go from bad to worse. There is no way we can hold Tripoli.
Reinforcements are on their way.

Turn 82: October 9, 1942

Ouch! Our "Scottish Patriots" mobile defense force goes from full strength to destroyed in a single turn!
We also lose Tripoli and its Italian defenders (a small corps), no surprise there.


There won't be any counter-attacks either, as the weather prevents it.

Despite our recent loss, the worsening weather should make it easier to
defend the UK until spring 1943.

In Russia we set up in winter quarters. I am fairly confident about our ability
to defend here until spring 1943. We can afford to give ground if needed.

We take a single hill that had very light defenses. In the south there is heavy rain.

Our most worrisome front is in the far south.

Germany is at 75% manpower. We are still replacing losses from Barbarossa.

Italy builds a small corps.

Interesting a 500 VP lead for Germany and a fairly good defense position on all three fronts as winter comes on. If Glasgow and its Brit reinforcement zones can't be taken the western allies need to find an open German flank to turn. Portugal? Balkans thru the Aegean?

There are so many places they can attack. I'm actually relieved to have some troops tied down in Scotland. It's much easier when I know where the fight is going to be.
