My diagnosis of the German problem here is that they seem to have everything on the front line, trying to create the largest CV possible on the front while leaving nothing in reserve. They also have almost no entrenchments leading to higher casualties for themselves and fewer casualties for the Russians.

The intent seems to be to stop every single attack, or cause the Russians to devote as many troops as possible to each attack. An acknowledgement, however, that the Russians will be able to defeat any German stack they choose to attack would lead to a different deployment. Instead of stacking everyone up front, have just enough up front to force the Russians to devote considerable resources to their attacks, but leave plenty of troops behind the line where they can set up fortifications while acting as a reserve for the front line. Being in reserve mode will slow entrenchment efforts, but would mean the entrenching has at least begun when the front line troops are forced to retreat. They will then be in a position to further increase the entrenchment level while the reserve troops fall back and start the next line behind them.

Agree with your point. But because the Axis Army has all their units in the front line it has limited the Soviet Army's ability to advance more than one or two hexes a turn, keeping the front lines to the east as much as possible before the start of the summer of 1944. My biggest concern is that the Soviet Army will quickly outrun its supply sources during the final offensive towards Berlin starting in the summer of 1944 allowing the German Army more time to build up defenses east of Berlin.
