In the northern part the reconquest of Finland begins as Rumanians land in Northern finland.

Central part one Soviet army surrounded and destroyed otherwise securing the pocket. There will not be any relief for the pocketed I think so that will be a nice catch but will take some time to eliminate them all.

In the south a couple of paradrops. Not sure if they will do much I had some units available in the west that I transferred so there is a lot of hope I can catch some more units down here.

In general there is a bit of panic with the soviets. There are no garrisons anywhere. Not Murmansk not Leningrad not the ports in the Black sea. I take a little bit advantage of this and invade and take Sevastopol.

Again how things can quickly change. I thought with the bad weather start and all the interruptions and the fall of Finland I felt this wont work. The only silver lining I saw was that the Soviet army always felt pretty small. And now I think I might have dealt a death blow to the Soviets which might be game winning possibly. Might still take some time but 1942 wont be fun for the Soviets.

Think a good advise for all allied players when the Germans take Kiev and Smolensk beware .

In the west not much happening now. Guess this will be stalemate for a long time.

Oh wow. Quite the change of events. USSR will be very hard pressed to make up those losses, that is, if they can?
Nice move, have to add that to my Axis strategy book.

I dont think they can. I know from experience at the most can you produce one unit per turn (maybe 2 if you build inf corps but they are too bad) and with so much holes in the line it will be easy to eliminate a unit or two each turn so there will never be a comeback. Of course now bad weather so there will be some recovery. But at the most I am guessing soviet army at 1600 come spring and I dont think that will be enough.

I reduce the central pocket and take Moscow. Other parts of the front I continue to liberate Finland and extend beachhead in the caucasus.

After losing a whole lot of subs both because of escorts and CVs it is possible the allies have survived the worst crises.
Not over yet a 9th sub on the way and if I repair the ones I have some damage maybe still can be inflicted.

September 29 1941

Situation as the good weather comes to an end. What a ride it has been but obviously feeling pretty pleased as things stand. Now rest the mech units and try to push teh front east where I can.

In the south the Caucasus front will hopefully cause some more Soviet headache.

I am considering building a couple of more arm corps and maybe 1 or 2 airunits as I think there is a chance for me to get the Caucasus oil this game.

Fighting comes mostly to the end. But even in rain I surround a nice 7 combat strength army outside Moscow.
I think if I could get a cold turn I maybe could surround all the units in the Tula orel Kursk sector.

November 21 1941

Skip forward not much going on. I got a turn of clear weather and with the frontline with so much holes I easily encircle another 8 units including 3 mech.

German army alone is now almost as strong as all the allies together so that is nice.

How many of the 52 German Naval factors do you think were subs strength? Maybe I need to take back my comment that subs vs escort ratio is off?

Whoever is the Allies in this game are in serious trouble.

Axis combined fleet equal to Allies
Soviets less strength that Axis.

Allies better do something in 1942.

Surface fleet is 11 so that would mean 41 subs.

January 2 1942

Happy new 1942. Champagne flows in Berlin and Rome as the war is fairly succesfully waged. That the US have entered the war is conveniently forgotten .

Situation in the east northern part. Soviet army almost under 1000 very good news.

And situation in the south.

Already positioning some units to try and encircle the whole southern army against the Sea of Azov.

One pocket with 3 units (1 mech corps alrady eliminated) in the crimea and I create a pocket around Rostov. Some units might get put by boat but still it is only February and everywhere there is wide open land to advance into.

In the North I get access to Leningrad and cut the winter road. Approach Saratov. And slowly move the railheads further east.

March 13 1942

Mopping up units continues. Not much resistance any longer. I push every rail line east as much as I can.

Otherwise not so much going on. My subwar is more or less lost. I still have 8 subs but they have started taking some damage all the time so they are not out as much. So ComadrejaKorp have done much better than I did with the BoA.

April 10 1942

The race towards the oil is on. Not even summer yet and Italian armour 5 hexes from Grozny. With good weather I can encircle Stalingrad next turn. Destroyed another 6 units this turn and Sovier army stays between 1000-1100 strength.

Why are the Russians defending so heavily in the north? Did their capital relocate up there rather than one of the cities to the west connected to Siberia?

I guess that he is using the better defensive terain in the north. Also he need to be sure that the LL route from Mursmank/Arskhangel is not cut by axis units.

I think the railroad south was cut so difficult to reinforce that area. And defending in the North is easier.
I think he can rebuild in the Urals and the allies have overcome the submarines more or less so the game is not over. Concentrating in one area might be the thing to do and then try to stage a comeback. But it is very far from Kazan to Berlin.

How is the partisan situation in the East. Does Germany still need to leave a division in almost city or can they be chased down with 2 or 3 divisions?

If they spawn and very few have so far they can be chased down. I barely think about the partisans and deal with it if a problem shows up. I do use some garrisons especially if I want that caucasus oil to come back to Germany I will need to secure that very long railroad.

May 22 1942

Stalingrad encircled. Grozny fall. I cut the raillines so supply for the 2 units in the south should be bad. Unless the port helps but the port cant trace anywhere. I wonder how that works. Can it trace through Turkey and all the way to Archangelsk?

Astrakhan falls and next turn I could invade Baku but maybe not necessary we will see.
