It is turn 4 and Stalin (i.e. the AI) finally got around to replacing Shaposhnikov with Zhukov. (Good pick AI!) Other than that, nobody else has died, been executed, or been dismissed. One would think with the constant forced displacement of HQs there would be a lot of dead Russian generals by now.

That is unusual. Unless the new patches have changed anything. The Soviet commander for the western front is famous for usually getting shot in the first four turns.

You might have preferred Zhukov in charge of an army though. It will cost many more points to get him out of STAVKA and to an army now.

I guess in the next few turns that will change?

There is something wrong with the leader system where a general like Zhukov is better leading a low level formation like an army rather than a higher level formation like a front. Based on this logic, your most talented soldiers should all be leading platoons while the morons become chiefs of staff.

+1 - and something that would be really nice to change.

There is a slight subtlety that you want the guys with high morale and bad other stats at the top. But your point stands.
